Epic Games is making major changes in Fortnite, and Ali-A recently revealed some of them coming in 2021.
Popular Fortnite YouTuber Alastair “Ali-A” Aiken spoke a great deal about these changes coming with the next update in Chapter 2 - Season 5.
After making a chronological list of everything that happened in 2020, Ali-A discussed the direction Fortnite would take in 2021.
The highlight among all the major reveals remains the prediction about “Kevin The Cube’s” resurgence in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6. Ali-A strengthened his claim by drawing out the pattern Epic follows every season in the game.
Ali-A explains why Kevin The Cube might return in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6
In the recent video, Ali-A predicted that Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6 would mimic a previous season from Chapter 1. He mentioned this is because almost all seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2 have elements that symbolize events from the first chapter.
Ali-A mentions that Fortnite had the superhero theme in Chapter 1 - Season 4, and likewise, Chapter 2 - Season 4 brought the Avengers to the Island. Similarly, Fortnite Chapter 1 - Season 6 had the "Darkness Rises" theme. Thus, it's plausible that Epic will plan something similar for Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6.
Ali-A highlighted how Kevin The Cube went under Lazy Lake and emerged as a full-fledged power source in Fortnite. Its power lifted the central island of Fortnite in the air, almost resembling the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
On August 24th, 2020, Kevin the Cube celebrated its second anniversary in Fortnite. It is one of the strongest objects in the game, and Epic might postpone its arrival because of the Zero Point.
While Agent Jonesy and his band of hunters will further the plot in Chapter 2 - Season 5, Ali-A believes that Kevin The Cube will extend it in Season 6.
He also explained how the developer is adding the Unreal Engine access for modders and programmers to redesign maps in Fortnite Creative. They showed a cube similar to Kevin in the video, and that was a major hint from the developers.
Epic will allow players to create older versions of the Fortnite map with the help of Unreal Engine. However, the publisher will also maintain a steady moderation of content considering players might be more interested in the OG Fortnite maps than the current BR map.
Nevertheless, Kevin The Cube reappearing in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6 adds a whole new dimension to the end of Season 5. If the next season is going to be themed after “Darkness Rises” then it means Agent Jonesy and his hunters will fail to accomplish their mission.
Simultaneously, it might also mean that Jonesy’s dimension-portal device will play an instrumental role during the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. In all fairness, the game is going through a major transition period which will come full circle in Season 6.
Hopefully, players will get to see the mighty Kevin The Cube in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6.
