Thanks to the Fortnite Cube, Loot Lake has become a purple bouncy place to visit, And that might mean big changes to the season 6 map.
There was a lot of hype surrounding what might happen today when the object finally reached its final destination.
Those who were watching – Prominent Twitch streamer Ninja among them – saw “Kevin” melt into the lake, firing off an electrical current while doing it.
After disappearing into the depths, Loot Lake was transformed into a bouncy surface that doesn’t include fall damage.
It’s safe to drop from any structure you build onto the lake, which will allow you to bounce around.
Chests are still easy to find as you can build your way across the surface, if bouncing isn’t your thing.
While the event itself might have been a little underwhelming, it doesn’t mean it’s the end.
Like the rips in time seen at the end of Season 4, it’s expected that further changes are coming to the season 6 map.
The purple bouncy surface could spread along rivers and the rest of the map, or something else could start to happen.
Maybe the surface will start changing colour, providing the setting for a volcano to eventually sprout from it.
Whatever Epic Games has planned for season 6, you can expect that a lot of it will start at Loot Lake.
Changes could start to be spotted over the coming days, ahead of the launch of season 6.
And the weekend could see more events happen, although nothing has been confirmed by Epic Games yet.
Season 5 is scheduled to end on September 25, so there’s plenty of time for more stuff to pop up.
Historically, new Fortnite seasons have begun the day after the previous one finished.
And there’s reason to believe that Epic Games will begin teasing the season 6 Battle Pass shortly for Fortnite fans.
With the past few season crossovers, Epic Games has released official teasers in the days leading up to the new Battle Pass launch.
When Fortnite season 4 was about to launch, Fortnite season 3 was pencilled in to finish on a Monday – the same as with the season 5 end this time around.
And when that happened Epic Games began releasing Fortnite season 4 teasers on a Thursday.
So, with less than a week until the current Battle Pass is scheduled to end it’s likely Epic Games will begin releasing teasers in the next few days.
That is, unless, the Fortnite season 6 release date gets delayed.
