Fortnite Update 18.21 Patch Notes

The Cube Queen Seizes ControlThe Cube Queen’s emergence brings changes to the island, since the Fortnitemares began and earlier the Cubes have been mobilizing. They are forming The Convergence since they have migrated towards the center of the island, though the purpose of the structure is mysterious.

You may have fought the Cube Monsters but now it will be accompanied by the Cube Queens strongest warriors, Caretakers. They are tall foreboding, shadowy apparitions, who will pull you with their spectral tendrils directly into The Sideways for a showdown on their home turf. Surviving against them will make you richer.

Additionally, the Cube Queen’s wrath has given rise to a new Sideways weapon, the sinister Sideways Scythe. It will be accompanied with other items such as Witch Brooms and the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher. You can use them to hold your own in battle.

Horde Rush Returns

Horde Rush makes a comeback fight along with your teammates to rake up the score finding score multipliers, earning combos, and eliminating as many monsters as you can. You will have to survive to locations across the map and take down the Final Boss to win.

Though the Horde Rush LTM will be live from October 19 at 9 AM ET to November 2 at 9 AM ET, it will not on its own. You will also be required to A Horde Rush Quests to get special rewards. You can also unlock the Thinking Juice Back Bling, a Cube Queen Banner, and the Cuddle Scream Leader Spray.
