Throughout Season 8, the main change in the map has been new dig sites appearing around the map, this next one could be what they have been leading too.
First a helicopter appears, and then a construction crew opens up a hole in the Fortnite map.
We have seen this pattern happen in a lot of locations around the map.
There most recent destination is Loot Lake, and it seems like this may be the pay-off of all the movement around the map.
Loot Lake has been one of the most central locations to the Fortnite storyline.
The biggest moment that happened at the lake was Kevin the Cube finally finishing the journey around the map by sinking into the lake.
When that happened, the lake turned purple and became a trampoline before piece of the lake rose to the sky and it became Leaky Lake.
Kevin the Cube is still controlling parts of the storyline. A shard of Kevin was found powering the Ice King, and we likely haven’t seen the last of the mysterious purple cube.

We might be seeing a return sooner than we thought. With a dig site happening at Loot Lake, they could uncover something that went dormant under the lake.
Next dig site will be the middle of loot lake, as indicated by the helicopter and the dig team overlooking the remains of the cube. I don’t think messing with Kevin during sleep is a great idea from r/FortNiteBR
Fortnite feels due for a new big event. Usually, something happens in the middle of each Fortnite season and we are still waiting on the midway event for Season 8.
This dig site may be the catalyst. As for what is going to happen, we can only speculate.
Maybe the Cube will come back up. Maybe a new portal for Cube Monsters will open (plz, no), or something else entirely could be in the works.
What do you think will happen when construction begins on the Lake?
New voice lines hint at Fortnite Season 5 season-ending event
The most recent Fortnite Season 5 update added new voice lines to the game, suggesting the Zero Point will have a role in the Season 5 event.
The Fortnite v15.40 update released some new and leaked NPC voice lines that hint towards a massive season-ending event to close Season 5.
Fortnite Season 4 was a standalone season, in many ways. Instead of focusing on the overarching Fortnite plot, it was a deviation while the Marvel heroes dealt with Galactus.
In Season 5, things picked back up again. We may have gotten more information in Chapter 2 Season 5 than we’ve had for the entirety of Fortnite’s lifespan. We’re at the point where we even think we’ve cracked the case of the Fortnite story.
In v15.40, Epic added some new NPC voice lines to the game that point to what many of us assumed: Season 5 will have a season-ending event that will relate to the Zero Point. Here’s what we learned after the most recent update.
New & leaked Fortnite voice lines
Several Fortnite characters have had their voice lines either updated or leaked. Lexa now has a specific voice line attached to her brother, Orin, which isn’t huge news in any way.
Some of the other leaked lines seem to relate to one of the skins that have yet to be released. Both Kondor and Ragnarok have a specific reaction to a particular skin, but that skin isn’t here yet.
The most interesting voice lines come from characters that are already in the game. Mancake, Deadfire, and Bunker Jonesy all have new voice lines when you approach them. The former two are located near the Zero Point and the latter has been the catalyst of many Season 5 theories.
Hypex, who released all of these voice lines, didn’t go into much detail about what these could mean for the future of Fortnite. If we had to guess, we’d say that they’re preparing us for a season-ending event.
The characters around the Zero Point are taking notice of some changes. At this point, we’d be surprised if the Zero Point didn’t destabilize and take us to another dimension – possibly the in-between from the Butterfly Event.
Only time will tell, but the end of Fortnite Season 5 is now a month away. Epic may be preparing us for something big

Fortnite Winter Trials event & rewards leaked
Epic Games quickly added and removed a webpage that revealed a new Fortnite event: Winter Trials. Here’s everything we know so far.
Epic Games released a new website, announcing the Fortnite Winter Trials. They have since removed the site, leading fans to believe it was leaked early.
Most of the time, when we’re discussing Fortnite leaks, we’re talking about data miners finding files in the game that relate to certain events, skins, etc. In rare cases, Epic let something slip a bit early. That’s what we have here.
On January 25, Epic released the Fortnite Winter Trials webpage, showcasing free rewards, an influencer tournament, community voting on events, and more.
The website was quickly removed after it was added, but data miner Hypex was able to record some of the contents before it went down.
The details of the event are still limited, but it appears as though players will be earning badges for logging in, voting for challenges, and playing Fortnite.
Over the course of the rest of the season, your playtime and badges will reward you with free cosmetics. Most of them are hidden, but we know about a spray, emoticon, and weapon wrap from the images on the website.
We should see an official announcement of the event soon. Since Epic were the ones who jumped the gun, we expect to see them announce the event as soon as tomorrow – if not later tonight.
We’ll update this post when we learn more about the event, along with additional details on how to earn free cosmetics. Stay tuned.
Fortnite Winterfest 2020: dates, leaks & more
Fortnite Winterfest 2020 is expected to come soon. Here’s everything we know about the event including dates, leaks, and more.
Fortnite Winterfest 2020 is right around the corner. Here’s everything we know.
Epic Games have always celebrated the holiday season in Fortnite, bringing players content updates, challenges, and cosmetic rewards. We don’t expect 2020 to be any different, as we prepare ourselves to unlock all of these new holiday-themed additions.
Ahead, we’ll give you a glimpse of everything we know about Winterfest 2020 so far. Check back later for updates, as we’ll be keeping this article up to date with all of the latest Winterfest leaks, rumors, and more.
When does Fortnite Winterfest 2020 start?
We don’t have an exact date of when Winterfest 2020 will begin, but we do have some clues based on past seasonal content.
The original Fortnite Christmas event lasted from December 20 to January 2. Last year, Winterfest ran from December 18 to January 6. We expect something similar to the latter this year.
With updates traditionally coming on Tuesday or Thursday, we expect Winterfest 2020 to begin on December 15-17 and run until January 5-7.
Fortnite Winterfest leaks & rumors
We’ve already seen a ton of leaks and rumors regarding Winterfest 2020 – dating back to before Season 5 even began.
Back in October, Fortnite data miner Hypex provided some leaks of future content that may come in Season 5. One of those elements was a “Snowman NPC.”
At the time, no one knew what this meant. Now, after playing Season 5, it’s fair to assume that a new snowman NPC will come to Fortnite, spawn somewhere holiday-related, and offer quests, bounties, and upgrades.
ShiinaBR, another Fortnite data miner, leaked an image of an upcoming Fortnite skin that, reportedly, doesn’t come with an Item Shop tag. He took this to mean that Snowmando – as the skin is named – could be a free skin for 14 Days of Fortnite like we saw last season.
Whether or not this is the case, it stands to reason that Snowmando will be the rumored Snowman NPC that will come to Fortnite this Winterfest season.
Epic Games have been focused on the Flopper loot pool in recent seasons, so it makes sense that they’ll be giving this a change for Winterfest, as well.
According to LunakisLeaks, We’ll be getting a “Christmas Flopper” this Winterfest season. As to what it will do: your guess is as good as ours.
Along with these leaks, we have rumors of returning items like Presents, Ice Machines, Snowball Launchers, and more.
Hopefully, Epic give us some free cosmetics as they did with the last season. The Star Wars Sith back bling is still one of the most popular cosmetic items in the game – a year later.
We’ll keep you posted with everything we learn ahead of the 2020 Winterfest patch. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, so you never miss anything, @FortniteINTEL.
