The event at the end of Season 8 is beginning to take shape and now we know most of what will happen.

Over the past few days we have slowly been piecing together the upcoming Nexus event in Fortnite and now we have the final clue.

Thanks to leaks from FortTory, we can see that Fortnite’s volcano is going to explode. That seems like it will happen when all six runes activate at Loot Lake.

With five of the six runes currently activated, it seems like we are due for the event to come in the next few days.

Once the runes are activated and the volcano explodes, players will be transported to the in-between zone that played a part in previous storylines.

Once there, players will be able to vote on one of six items to be brought back to the game.

Those items are bouncers, drum guns, planes, tactical SMGs, grappler and the Infinity Blade.

Happy Power breaks down most of this event with some of the key visuals in a new video:

This has been confirmed through multiple leaks from a variety of sources and can be seen in-game where the drum gun and bouncers have both appeared on two of the six screens in Loot Lake.

It seems that the place where the runes are headed is literally the vault, which was also hinted at with the gold-filled cave title screen from earlier this season.

All that is left now is to wait and see. It will be important to be in the game during the event as that will allow you to vote. Whatever you do, please don’t choose the Infinity Blade.

The rest are all fair game but the planes coming back would provoke an interesting reaction from the player base.

What will you be voting for when the event gets underway? Let us know in the comments below:
