The Fortnite Cube Explodes, Changing the Map Again

RIP Kevin.

Just when you think Fortnite can’t get any stranger, Kevin the Cube implodes. In a special in-game event that took place at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on November 4, the Cube vanished from Battle Royale for good.

Rest in peace, Kevin the Cube. When the in-game event began, Kevin imploded, emitting a blinding white light that temporarily transported players to another dimension, where everyone was floating in white light for a solid 60 seconds.

Good night, sweet prince.

Eventually, what looked like a transparent butterfly appeared in the white space, thrusting players back into the Battle Royale map. Only this time, the area that was once Loot Lake has changed yet again.

All traces of Kevin the Cube and the floating island are now gone. What’s left in their place are a series of small islands, with what looks like some sort of shrine near the middle. It’s anyone’s guess how this could affect Fortnite Battle Royale going forward.

As of right now, we’re still trying to confirm whether all the smaller, zombie-spawning Cubes around the Fortnite map have vanished. It would stand to reason that with Kevin gone, his smaller counterparts would also vanish, but we’re still checking this out to make sure they’re all gone.
