In the middle of all the haunts and horrors of Fortnitemares, a terrifying surprise has come to the Island of Fortnite: the arrival of the Cube Queen!
The full scope of her vision for Cubic dominance is yet to be known, but we will do our best to prepare you for what to expect in the Wrath of The Cube Queen!
New Cubed Forces Have Arrived
You’re already experts in handling Cube Monsters, but a new even more powerful type has arrived with the Queen. These cubes are called Caretakers. They are tall spectre-like creatures that will drag you into The Sideways, and battle you in a challenging showdown. The Caretakers are the strongest warriors yet, but making it out of a battle with one of them will give a nice reward.
There is a new reason to brave through The Sideways now; a Sideways weapon has sliced its way into the fray – the Sideways Scythe. More wicked weapons have returned to the Island; try to get your hands on the Witch Brooms, and the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher.
Hope you got a sweet tooth, because Candy will also be making a return — this time with the new Zero Point Pretzel in the mix.
Horde Rush Returns
The Cube’s are trying to push out of The Sideways and into our realm! The only way to prevent that is Horde Rush! That’s right, the Horde Rush LTM is back! Battle monsters alongside your teammates and earn more points by finding score multipliers, nailing combos, and eliminating as many monsters as you can. Survive at locations across the map and take down the Final Boss to achieve a hard earned victory.
The Horde Rush LTM will be live for the remainder of Fortnitemares (until November 1 at 10 a.m. ET). The return of Horde Rush will also see the arrival of Horde Rush Quest. Completing the quest will grant you with these special rewards: the Thinking Juice Backbling, the Cube Queen Banner, and the Cuddle Scream Leader Spray.
Be sure to get plenty of practice in Horde Rush, as there will be a Horde Rush tournament where you can win cosmetics! More details on this will be available on the Compete Tab.
Ariana Grande Returns and New Quests Emerge
The Horde Rush Quests are not the only ones featured in The Wrath of the Cube Queen! Starting now, Hallowhead will present you with the Fortnitemares Punchcard. Here are all the quests now available as well as the rewards for completing them.
- Complete general Fortnitemares Quest to unlock the Raven’s Curse Spray, the Midnight Showdown Loading Screen, and Wrathful Breakout Contrail.
- Ariana Grande has returned to the Island, but now in new gear ready to take down monsters. Spacefarer Ariana Grande, the galaxy’s greatest monster hunter, is inviting you to join her hunt. Complete her Monster Hunter questline to unlock the new All-Weather Extractor Pickaxe (Dark Style)! There is also a special bonus for Fortnite Crew Members on this one. Completing the Monster Hunt questline will grant Crew Members with the Brite Style of the All-Weather Extractor Pickaxe along with its variant.
- Help Dark Jonesy find a powerful artifact that can restore his vision in the Oracle questline. Completing the Oracle questline will unlock the Cube Cruiser Glider, an unfolded Cube that you can fly on!
Hallowheads Punchard won’t be the only Punchard going live at 9 AM ET, though…
With Containment Specialist’s Ghostbusters Punchard, deploy Seismographs, exterminate mini-Pufts, and more to unlock the No Ghost Back Bling — inspired by the upcoming “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” film!
Complete these exciting quests and get your rewards while you can, as they will be around till November 1!
The Wrath of the Cube Queen has changed the Island, but there is certainly much to be gained from this cubic chaos. Hop on the Island now and experience the wrath for yourself!
