Another in-game change has taken place in Fortnite involving the mysterious giant Cube.

Around midday on August 28, a low-gravity dome/field formed around the Cube, encompassing it and the nearby surrounding area.

This newly formed gravitational force field affects anyone who goes near the Cube, allowing them to hop around in a low-gravity environment.

Its effect is very similar to the Hop Rocks that were temporarily added to the game at the start of Season 4, although the effect does go away once the player has left the zone.

Here are video of this new low-gravity field in-game, courtesy of Fortnite news outlet @LootLakeBR and YouTuber ‘DuhSlayerr.’

Although it is impossible to know what the Cube will do next and when, all of these occurrences seem to be following a pre-determined set of events. 

The formation of this gravitational dome, along with the Cube’s scheduled movements, all fit in with a coded event pattern that was found and leaked by FNLeak several days ago. 

It appears that the Cube has entered the next phase of events, which means, according to the leak, it should be starting to move towards a “lake.”

Although unspecified, many believe the “lake” is referring to ‘Loot Lake,’ however some have predicted it will make its way back into the desert corner of the map and go to the unnamed body of water that is located there.

The Cube is currently located near Fatal Fields, and we will provide updates as to any new events or changes that occur.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
