Fortnite's Big Purple Cube Has Finally Been Broken Into

"What's in the box?!"

Last week, lightning started raining down all around the Fortnite Battle Royale map. Later, a big purple cube appeared near Paradise Palms, and now players have managed to break their way into said cube for the first time.

The feat was chronicled over on the Fortnite Reddit page, where two players managed to break their way into the huge cube using pickaxes. As you might have expected, the inside of the cube is entirely empty, with nothing whatsoever found inside of it.

Bummer. We don't yet know what role the cube is actually meant to play in Fortnite Battle Royale, but it could have something to do with the upcoming Season 6, which should be less than four weeks away from launching, after Season 5 wraps up in September.

If you're still trying to complete challenges from the previous week of Fortnite Battle Royale, you can head over to our Fortnite Week 7 Challenges guide. It's here that you'll find a complete guide on how to complete all seven tasks for the week.
