According to a recent leak by HYPEX, Epic is planning something big for Season 8. The center of the map will undergo changes leading to a new POI called the Cube Town. We currently don’t know exactly when all of this will happen. But a few things are known. HYPEX asserts that the Cube Town will have multiple chests all over the POI, as well as cube bounce pads. Going by how things are now, all of this can happen during the Fortnitemares event.

All the cubes, including the Queen Cube, may collide with each other. This can change the center of the map as we know it. The cubes have been moving for quite some time now and previous rumors have hinted at the same. When the spire got destroyed in Fortnite Season 7, the Zero Point was released and is believed to be somewhere under the surface.

It’s a matter of time when players get to see Zero Point again. Until that happens, what remains to be seen is what the cube’s energy does to the island. The new Cube Town POI will continue the culture of map changes every season. Epic might even reveal a mystery villain or NPCs when the new POI gets added. It is unlikely that Epic will remove all the cubes as Fortnite Season 8’s theme revolves around them.
