Another Fortnite patch means more leaks have arrived. An all new event is heading to Fortnite in the near future.
Each and every Fortnite patch brings in new files for leakers and data miners to comb through. The new v8.40 update is no exception and contains a plethora of leaked challenges, potential locations, sound files, and clues to an event.

Let’s dive right in and get to looking through what the community has managed to uncover so far.
New ‘Snow’ & ‘Leaky’ Events incoming
A new event is heading to Fortnite at some point in the presumably near future. The working name for the mode within the files of the game is ‘Snow.’ It’s purposefully generic to keep miners off its scent, but they found it anyway.
We suspect that both event files are actually referring to the same event, though they could be separate.
Well known Fortnite data miner and leaker @Hypex put up a long sound file for the ‘Snow’ event.

While the event is called ‘Snow’, other sound files point to another event name, possibly based around the new bunker/vault at Loot Lake.
These files are marked as “Leaky” and probably refer to the cracking of the vault and the release of Kevin the Cube. This might mean corrupted areas, Shadow Stones, and more.

We suggest you listen to every second of these sound files. It’s mostly ambient sound that sort of sounds out of place, but blends in with game audio on release.
Kevin the Cube Returns?
Well, from these leaks, we start to speculate a little about what is coming to Fortnite in the coming weeks.
The giant bunker or vault that has been uncovered below Loot Lake will likely be the center of the coming event. We know that Kevin the Cube was contained and locked away within the chamber.
The pirates will crack the safe, looking for booty, and accidentally release the Cube upon the world again. So begins the second terrible reign of the Cube. Or so we think.
We suspect that this could bring back some elements from the Cube days. These included corrupted areas, Shadow Stones, and the Shadowform movement that comes with them.
Remember, all of this is speculation and the leaks could be plans that are scrapped/changed before release. We’ll have to patiently wait for what’s to come, but we’re definitely excited. Fortnite could really use a mass scale event right now.
