Epic Games is ramping up for the next season of Fortnite, teasing the theme with changes to the map.
The mysterious purple lightning strikes that have been happening across the map have now stopped after focusing on a single area in Paradise Palms. In their place is a purple cube that materialised from the assault.
If you strike the cube, runes appear on its surface. It also slowly charges your shield if you hang about on it for a while.

Be careful if you swing at it, though – it might bounce you off and to your death. It also appears to be zapping players who shoot at it.
Quite what it represents is a mystery, but no doubt we’ll find more in the coming days as the teases continue.
