Fortnite is revisiting story aspects from the first chapter in Season 8

The story continues to unfold with each season adding another layer of mystery. The current state of the island is all thanks to the efforts of loopers and the betrayal of Dr. Slone. It turns out, the first appearance of the Cube was actually carried out by the invading alien species known as ‘The Last Reality’.

These beings serve one purpose only, which is to investigate all realities and subsequently destroy them. This process is perpetual, which could be the reason why Kevin was sent to the island in Season 1. It should have destroyed the entire island, but things did not turn as ‘The Last Reality’ had intended.

Now, in Season 7, we learn that the aliens are using these cubes as an energy source with a golden one at the center. This cube is rumored to contain a powerful being, which is currently attracting all the cubes towards it. It is being dubbed as the queen and she might be secretly pulling strings.

It seems like Fortnite is going to return with Season 8 and it could unleash ‘The Queen’ upon us all. Last time, Kevin unleashed an army of zombies on the island, and this time, you might have to fight against this strange being.
