Fortnite has been pretty awesome with its Battle Pass, bringing in some cool new characters and gear. With Season 8, they took it one step further, bringing someone more relevant to the game, affecting the story in the world. Here’s what we know about the Cube Queen.

Latest – Cube Queen Set unveiled
The Cube Queen set, which will be available as special levels in the Battle Pass, has been revealed. It won’t go live for a few days, but now we have an idea of the cosmetics up for grabs.
Queen of Cubes revealed
We finally have concrete evidence of the Cube Queen and she is now starting to appear. With tons of leaks at work, they even found screenshots of her working in the game. The Queen is a powerful entity capable of controlling all of those cubes that appear on the map. It’s sure to be precious skin.
We’ll find out all about her next week.

Finally, our first leak of who might be the mysterious character has surfaced, thanks to the recent update 18.20.
It looks like this is the Cube Queen outfit, so hopefully we’ll hear more official details this week.
Mystery character from season 8
In the Battle Pass menu, clear as day is a silhouette for the mysterious character. It appears to be a female figure with some sort of heavenly / crystal armor. This makes sense for our idea of the queen of cubes.
When you click on this section of the Battle Pass, no further details are given as to its identity. We can see that there will be 10 items to unlock with them, but that’s it. We do, however, have a release date that appears to run until Thursday, October 28. Scary season.
Is the mysterious character part of Fortnitemares?
With the dates lined up like they do, it is very possible that the skin is related to some event. I would risk guessing that it’s more tied to the overall story of the season than to something like Halloween.
Considering the appearance of the skin outline and the current situation of the moving cube, this is where the connection is. We still know so little about how the story unfolds in Season 8, but this character can have a huge role to play.
We can’t wait to see how things develop in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you up to date with the latest news and updates on Season 8 here.
