Fortnite Season 5’s big event is finally here.
It has arrived in the form of a giant purple cube that is slowly making its way across the Fortnite battle royale map.
The purple cube arrived on Friday and appears to be slowly moving towards its final destination rolling over once every 1 hour 43 minutes.
What’s so special about this cube?
The cube charges up your shield when you are close to it, however, you won’t want to get too close as it will catapult you miles making you take some hefty fall damage in the process.
There has been a lot of speculation as to where the cube will stop.
With Fortnite Leaks on Twitter believing that the cube’s path will most likely take it through Salty Springs, Loot Lake and Pleasent Park.
Drawing together other theories it seem’s most likely that it will be Salty Springs that will be affected by the purple cube.
This theory makes a lot of sense and has some pretty convincing evidence.
Reddit user ShadoukenGames traced the direction every stone head was facing.
It turns out they are all looking towards Salty Springs.
A popular destination located just South of Dusty Divot.
It also just so happens to be located underneath the largest rift on the map…
Coincidence? We think not.
That’s not all though, as located in Salty Springs is a secret underground bunker.
Players are still not sure what relevance this bunker plays but have theorised that it could be something to do with the stone heads.
Season 6 could be in for a great start if all these theories turn out to be correct.
What could happen to Salty Springs?
Leaks and teasers from Fortnite have proven to be true before.
A new spray called Crazy Castle has been tipped off to be the replacement for either Salty Springs or Pleasent Park
Although the stone heads and the direction of the cube would suggest a Salty Springs change, we could see the cube continue on to affect other areas of the map as well.
What could the themes of Season 6 be?
Many YouTubers and streamers have been saying we could see the return of the most sought-after skin in the game ‘The Skull Trooper’.
This was a Halloween exclusive skin which was integral to Fortnite Battle Royale’s initial launch and success.
A creepy ominous Halloween/horror movie theme is currently the top candidate in the community for Season 6.
Areas of the map could easily be overhauled to have a more sinister feel, with Haunted Hills already being an example of that.
Werewolf, alien, Frankenstein and more skins could also be part of the battle pass.
Due to some players looking through the code in future patch notes they uncovered that there may be more water areas coming to the Fortnite map.
This has led players to believe that the theme of season 6 will be ‘water based’ with a great flood taking over portions of the map.
This could again lead to new vehicles in the form of boats, and the opportunity for some more brilliant skins.
It has also been found that the skins from previous seasons often hint at what is coming next.
The new scuba diving skins and Chomp Sr. skin could hint heavily at the theme for Season 6.
The evidence speaks for itself.
What are you hoping Fortnite Season 6’s theme will be?
