Fortnite season eight comes to an end on December 5th, which means we are simply a number of short days away from the story finale. This time, the anarchy of a season-ending event can be abstract tenfold, as rumors imply that Fortnite Chapter 3 is only around the bend. For now, we are going to take care of only what we noticed this season. The end of season eight is fast approaching, and here is everything that has happened within the battle with the cubes.
Throughout Operation: Sky fire, IO boss medical professional Slone recruited loopers to support end the alien hazard once and for all. The uneasy feeling about Slone's accord with players proved to be merited in the end; afterwards she felt she had dispatched the aliens for good with the aid of arming a massive bomb, she turned on avid gamers, abrogation them to die in the explosion.
Instead, the alien Mothership was revealed to be some sort of storage facility for countless cubes, a sentient race of beings we first saw in Fortnite way back during Chapter 1 when Kevin The Cube was introduced. Even today we don't know exactly how these cubes work, but we know they saved loopers on the Mothership that day, even as that seems to have been a byproduct of their true intentions: to take over the island.
As gamers discovered themselves on the island for season eight, it gave the impression at the start like nothing lots changed into diverse. all of the places of hobby from season lower back, although some places, similar to misty Meadows and the hills east of coral citadel, have been damaged by means of particles from the comatose Mothership, which even these days on the whole sits within the waters far offshore from Apollo. additionally new to the terrain have been a couple of large cubes of varying colorings, scattered across the island and resting ominously, admitting in brief.
Within days, the cubes began to move. These enigmatic six-sided monoliths would begin to topple over at a rate of about one move every few hours. As they did, they left a trail behind them that stained the island in amber colors, like some sort of corruption, or perhaps more like a plague. Day by day, roll by roll, the several cubes around the island started to reveal a pattern. They were heading toward the center of the island. Soon enough, they made it to their destination.
As the cubes localized on the center of the map, where the Zero Point previously stood and perhaps still stands concealed?, they summoned an un-earthly being whose powers we might appear to find far outweigh that of the loopers. The cube Queen arrived in vogue, demanding her dice Monsters from The Sideways dimension leave nothing in the wake of their destruction of the island.
For weeks, players have fought returned towards the cube Queen, led by means of J.B. Chimpanski's battle accomplishments, which eventually summoned effective mechs, but their efforts seem to have been in useless. nowadays, the cube Queen continues to be on the heart of the island, mocking any person who dares seem her means with a maniacal snicker. She additionally appears to be turning out to be in strength, as although she requires a kind of charging-up to full vigor. Her. convergence is now home to The Pyramid, an odd machine that appears identical to what it sounds however is weirdly built out of the cube/dice material, afterwards the last a couple of weeks saw the Queen iterate on this strange "headquarters". It has the markings of some sort of half-herbal, part-synthetic gadget, but what happens if you happen to turn it on?
A distinct cube well-nigh destroyed the island for good back in Chapter One. Now, a swarm of them rests on the island's core. Is there any hope for the island of Apollo? It doesn't bode well when many of the cube Queen's cosmetics comprise descriptions that hint at her unstoppable powers, like her personnel which is asserted to have previously "ended countless realities". Who may stand between her and the destruction of the Zero Point? Of greater concer... what happens if nobody does?
Similar to last season, the unkown in how all of this resolves itself is Doctor Slone, the highest ranking operative we have met to date (that we be aware of). Slone's plans have been thwarted at the conclusion of season 7, she and a tiny group of IO henchmen regrouped west of Dirty Docks. Within the weeks thereafter, her group marched, with formidable weapons in-hand, to an unknown location. Gamers speculated that she was heading to the secret bunker near Catty Corner. Forever known as the ***Redacted*** Bunker, Slone finally lifted the lid on what was beyond its formerly impenetrable walls: the IO Staging Facility.
What's the goal of this facility? What precisely is Slone, staging this time? We won't probably understand until the conclusion of the Season, but it surely seems she is never going to be content while someone else tries to acquire control of the island--or is it just the Zero Point she cares about? Of note, after her last betrayal, it be complicated to root for her too, even if she is, awkwardly, the island's best hope.
Calling this the "cube war" is a bit of a misnomer, to be honest. It doesn't make sense to call this a war any more than we'd call it a war when a human crushes an anthill. The cubes and their queen have done whatever they wanted, virtually unopposed--and not for lack of trying on the part of local loopers. To put it simply, we're outgunned, outmatched, and utterly doomed.
With another season of Fortnite quickly approaching chaos on an epic scale, we can reasonably expect an end-of-season event to cap things off for Season 8--and possibly all of Chapter 2. If this is the end for Apollo, it was a pleasure meeting you, Apollo.
