A brand new Fortnite Battle Royale in-game event named “Sphere Spawn” has been found by dataminers and it’s rumoured to be taking place today!
Spotted in the update files for the V5.40 patch, dataminers have discovered the new event, but it’s currently unknown what the event will actually be.
The Sphere Spawn event is currently scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 6 at 9:00 AM EDT (6AM PDT, 2PM BST, 11PM AEST), and then again on Saturday, September 8 at the same time.
It appears that the Sphere Spawn is an entirely new event, and may not be related to the Cube which was been travelling across the map, leaving runes and low-gravity zones in it’s week.
Events that have taken in place in the past have been found by dataminers in a similar fashion, but there is no guarantee that the Sphere Spawn will actually happen.
