Fortnite Cube’s Unexpected Anti-Gravity Zone Causes Major Mayhem at Summer Skirmish Grand Finals

The grand finals of the $1.5M Summer Skirmish tournament at PAX West was thrown a major and unexpected twist thanks to the giant cube in Fortnite.

During the fourth match of the six match grand final, one of the final Storm circles was located near the giant cube, which does have a low-gravity field surrounding it.

However, as players got close to the cube, they began experiencing extreme levels of low-gravity, to the point where the entire field was soaring through the air shooting at each other, unable to get back to the ground.

As of now, it is not clear whether this effect was intentional or not, but the casters of the event did announce that the low-gravity zone was going to be disabled for the rest of the grand finals.

Furthermore, a seventh game was added to the final, seemingly to make up for the mayhem of the fourth match.

Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, the effect came as a surprise to everyone, including the casters, players, and viewers.

Several community big-names, including the two casters DrLupo and CouRage, tweeted out their reactions to the occurrence.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
