Epic is being weird again.
Yesterday, lightning started striking cacti in the desert section of the map. Players reported these strikes happening at regular intervals, but the lightning kept coming faster and faster. One huge final bolt of lightning hit, and it left something.
This is now the latest piece in the puzzle that is Fortnite’s season by season narrative. The purple cube is located just outside of Paradise Palms. Nobody knows what it is or what it’s for or who sent it, but Fortnite players have discovered one key trait the cube seems to possess: it’s bouncy.
Like usual, this event will only get more complicated as the season comes to an end, but until then you can go see the cube yourself. Just be sure to thank the bus driver on your way down.
