That Weird Fortnite Cube Has Almost Reached Loot Lake

That Weird Fortnite Cube Has Almost Reached Loot Lake

"What's in the box?!"

Earlier in Fortnite Season 5, you might recall that a random purple cube suddenly appeared on the map. It wasn't long before the cube was on the move, and now, it's almost reached Loot Lake.

Back when the cube first appeared in Fortnite Battle Royale, there wasn't really much to it. Players broke into the cube with pickaxes, only to discover that it was completely hollow inside. Since then, the cube has moved around the Battle Royale map a fair bit, popping up in random spots on the map in every game, but always within a certain radius.

Now, as we move towards what we can only assume is Fortnite Season 6 next week, the cube is once again on the move. This time, it's almost reached Loot Lake, and players are speculating that the cube is going to transform Loot Lake from a water lake, into a lake made up of lava.

This speculation stems from FortniteBRLeaks on Twitter, who released the leaked data files earlier in September, seen just above. If this all goes as predicted, then Fortnite's Loot Lake could be heating up very quickly indeed.

As we mentioned earlier, Fortnite Season 6 should be launching next week, if the countdown timer on the Battle Pass tab of the main Battle Royale menu is anything to go by. For all the information we've collected about the next seasonal event so far, head over to our Fortnite Season 6 guide.
