Fortnightmares is Finally Over

Fortnite’s Latest In Game Event Dazzles Fans

Written by Luis Gutierrez, Podcast Director

Epic Games has been teasing that something big will be happening today (November 4th, 2018). Showing off pictures of the cube that’s been spawning all the monsters. Some players even noticed that the cube had giant cracks in it, leading everyone to believe it was going to break. Epic Games had been very vocal, telling fans to get on today at a certain time to see a one time only event. Much like season 4 when the missile shot up in the sky.

So comes the time when this event was supposed to happen, players gathered around just to see this play out. It felt like half the server was at the floating house that once was Loot Lake. Everyone waiting for something, while there were a few trolls racking up easy kills. The cube began to glow bright purple, faster and faster until it happened.

The cube exploded and the sky turned bright with light taking over the full screen. It looked like a nuclear missile had gone off. As the whiteness cleared it spawned you into this white abyss. You couldn’t draw your weapon or anything, all you could do was move around and see everyone else around you do the same. It looked like something out of the matrix which was pretty cool. One thing you could see was this strange butterfly looking thing floating around you.

Once it got close to you it started a cinematic in which your character gets close to it and touches it. Once you do, it rifts you back into the main game along with everyone else. One of the first things you notice is that along with the cube all the monsters are no longer there. Marking the end of Fortnitemares.

If you look from a distance you’ll see a rainbow floating above in the sky maybe to symbolize a new start? It’s unclear what any of this meant, but one thing was certain it was fun to watch. More than likely in the coming weeks near the end of season 6, Epic Games will tell us what it meant.
