Fortnite's Cube is Now Surrounded by a Low Gravity Field

Fortnite's Cube is Now Surrounded by a Low Gravity Field

It's Dusty Divot all over again.

Late last week, a cube suddenly appeared on the Fortnite Battle Royale map. Earlier this week, players broke into the cube to find that it was empty, but now it appears the cube is having an effect on the map area around it.

The news comes from FortniteBR on Twitter, a reliable source for leaks of Weekly Challenges, as well as cube movements across the map (yes, the cube moves). It appears that Fortnite's cube is surrounded by a low gravity field, causing players to bounce off the ground like soccer balls when in close proximity to the cube itself.

Keep in mind that this isn't actually the first time that Fortnite Battle Royale has messed with gravity. When Fortnite Season 4 launched earlier this year, Dusty Depot was obliterated by a comet, and in the wake left Hop Rocks on the ground, which you could consume to temporarily defy gravity.

Ultimately, who the hell knows what this could be leading up to. Fortnite Season 6 is set to launch in just under a month, so Epic could be laying the groundwork for some pretty significant changes to the Battle Royale map.
