Leaked files claim Fortnite’s Kevin the Cube is about to break apart

The V6.21 Update for Fortnite Battle Royale has only just been released, but data miners are already hard at work sifting through the patch files as they look for hints and clues as to what may be coming to Fortnite.

While searching through the files, leakers have found new textures that indicate that Fortnite’s Cube, affectionately named Kevin by the community, may not be a cube for much longer.

The files leaked by Siloxleaks indicate that the big purple object will break into three pieces at some point in the future, but as of yet, nobody is sure what will cause this destruction to happen.

The first of the leaked files show the three different textures of the three new fragments along with what appear to be some smaller pieces that will break off when the event happens.

The second file shows the cube in its current state, but gives a clear view of where Kevin will break apart, and also reveals the shape and size of the new fragments.

Data miners have also found the actual fragments that the cube will break into, with all three taking different shapes.

Cracks have been spotted on the cube over the last week, with more and more appearing as time went on, so it comes as little surprise that the cube won’t remain in its present form for much longer.

It seems likely that the Cube’s inevitable demise will come during the upcoming ‘Butterfly’ in-game event, for which data miners have found various new files, although there is no official announcement as to when that may take place.

Fortnitemares is scheduled to end on Sunday, November 4, so it’s possible that it takes place then, although we unfortunately don’t know what the future will hold for the various pieces of Kevin.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
