If you’ve been playing Fortnite over the weekend then you’ve probably noticed the weird purple cube that’s appeared. I mean, it’s pretty hard to miss the thing.
It looks like the addition of the purple cube has gotten everyone asking just one question – what the hell is it?!
A couple of players have already managed to get inside, and disappointingly it was empty. Although that’s not unexpected.
As we know, the purple cube is bouncy. So this anomaly happened while they were having fun on the cube.
Gsonicify said: “It looked like my friend bumped into me right as I was bouncing up. Somehow this f*cked up the Cube’s physics and it let me pass through,
“After that for some reason the collision with it was also pretty messed up.”
The cube is currently still rolling its way through the desert, but God knows where.
Eager Redditers have been researching the path of the cube, with co-ordinates and everything!
A Reddit user on the ever-growing ‘Tracking The Cube Event’ post wrote the following:
“Assuming the cube continues to move every 1hr43mins, here are today’s move times:
“Pacific (UTC-7): 12:16:58, 1:59:49, 3:42:40, 5:25:32, 7:08:23, 8:51:15, 10:34:06
“Eastern (UTC-4): 1:34:06, 3:16:58, 4:59:49, 6:42:41, 8:25:32, 10:08:24, 11:51:15
“BST (UTC+1): 1:25:32, 3:08:23, 4:51:15, 6:34:06, 8:16:58, 9:59:49, 11:42:41
“AWST/China (UTC+8): 1:34:06, 3:16:58, 4:59:49, 6:42:41, 8:25:32, 10:08:24, 11:51:15
“AEST (UTC+10): 12:08:23, 1:51:15, 3:34:06, 5:16:58, 6:59:49, 8:42:41, 10:25:32
“Edit: It looks like the cube is now moving every 1hr43 minutes, so these times will be somewhat off. This may continue to shift.”
The cube is one of the most-recent mysteries to be added into the world of Fortnite.
In other related news, Epic Games has confirmed that the ‘poo story’ which circulated from Gamescom 2018 earlier this month is definitely not true.
Responding to the claims that a player pooped into a bag which ended up getting smeared across the hall, an Epic Games employee took to Twitter to debunk the story.
Posting the story, he wrote: “I can’t believe I need to tweet this, but this did not happen.”
