The last of the runes left by the Fortnite cube in Season 5 has finally been activated by the mysterious floating island that rose out Loot Lake at the start of Season 6.

The floating island has been travelling from one rune to another since the season began, stopping to hover over each one in turn to activate it.

Once activated, the strange symbols open up and new pieces of the cube/island have risen from the ground to join it. In fact, the house on the island now contains a large proportion of purple bricks – the color associated with the cube’s corruption.

Now the process is set to happen, presumably for the last time, at the rune near Dusty Divot. This means that the area around the rune will now contain the weird volcanic pits that launch players into the air when touched.

Nobody is sure what will happen after the island has completed its work with the last of the runes, but it usually moves on after around three days so keep your eyes peeled for more changes on Sunday.

A number of leaks after the recent V6.10 update suggested that another major event was coming to the island soon, so the timing would certainly fit with it moving on from the final corrupted area.

A number of sound files supposedly related to this event were also shared by Sud4nym on Twitter:


It looks like all of the runes are now floating towards the island, as seen in the Tweet below from FortniteBR.

Don’t be surprised to see the rumored event begin within the next 24 hours!

One of the faces of PlayStation has arrived in Fortnite Season 5 as the God of War himself now has his very own skin. Here’s how you can grab the new Kratos reward for yourself.

Seemingly out of nowhere, some of the biggest leaks in Fortnite history appeared online over the past few days. Both Sony and Microsoft are getting their own items in Epic’s popular battle royale title. While Master Chief will seemingly be available soon, Kratos is the standout for now.

After a critically-acclaimed revamp of the franchise in 2018, the PlayStation nation is anxiously awaiting any new information surrounding the 2021 follow-up. Before we get there, however, there are a few new goodies to hold the community over in Fortnite.

You can now drop into Fortnite’s Season 5 update with everyone’s favorite dad. Not only that, but you can even wield his Leviathan Axe in battle, along with a few other iconic items. Here’s how you can grab them all.

Kratos bundle now available in Fortnite

As the first iconic character in a new ‘Gaming Legends’ series in Fortnite, Kratos is making a huge impact. The Oathbreaker set contains more than just his standard skin. You’ll also be able to use the Leviathan Axe to chop down materials, drop into battle with the Guardian Shield Glider, and bring Mimir with you as Back Bling.

Two subtle rewards are also crammed into the set as well. Just wielding the all-powerful Axe gives you access to an exclusive emote in-game. Additionally, for those on PlayStation 5, there’s another full skin to unlock.

Just by playing a single game with the standard Kratos skin, you’ll unlock an Armored Kratos Style cosmetic fit with stunning golden armor.

All of these new rewards are available to purchase in the Item Shop. A full bundle is available, priced at 2200 V-Bucks. Though you can also buy a few individual items. Kratos alone will run you 1,500 V-Bucks. The Axe is up for grabs at 1,000 V-Bucks. While the Glider is also available as a separate piece for 800 V-Bucks.

The God of War franchise has well and truly made its mark on Fortnite.

Season 5 has only just kicked off in Fortnite. Yet we’ve already got both Star Wars and now God of War characters running around the map. It’s only a matter of time before the next major crossover.

We already know Master Chief is on the way thanks to some early leaks. But the door is now wide open for future additions.
