Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 has come to a close with “The End”, a finale Season 8 event that rocked the island to its core. The Cube Queen’s overwhelming forces dominated the players -all hope was lost. Thankfully, the island was seemingly saved by members of The Seven and The Foundation, who was revealed to be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Fortnite’s “The End” event started out calm enough. Players had fun bouncing around while a large timer counted down, our pending doom juxtaposed by dancing Narutos. All of that changed at the 9-minute mark as Cube Monsters started bleeding into our reality. Armed with legendary weapons and mounted turrets, we easily tore through the first wave of enemies.Then the clock struck zero and all inter-dimensional hell broke loose.
The Cube Queen, seen floating above a pyramid like structure, sent up a beam of light that tore a hole in the sky. Apparently, she had conscripted the Alien armada last seen in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. Waves of flying saucers descended on us as giant monsters emerged from several cubed structures. Things weren’t going well.
From here, our focus shifted underground as a cutscene depicts Dr. Slone entering a secret IO base. She and her guards had captured Jones (Jonesy?) for some nefarious purpose; it looked like they were going to either scramble his mind or download important information locked away in his skull. Before Slone could finish though, Jones is saved by The Foundation, who removes his helmet revealing himself to be The Rock.
After that it’s a mad dash to the island’s core. Other members of The Seven help us, the Loopers, meet up with Jones and The Foundation just as a giant Cubed Monster smashes into their pressurized environment. Water comes flooding in and we float to the surface to witness the island tipping on its side. A few seconds later and Cube Queen – who seems to be tethered to her pyramid-like structure – is destroyed by the moving land mass. As the Fortnite’s world literally flips upside down, we see that there is another island on the other side. Fortnite Chapter 3 is here…almost.
Like previous Chapter ending events, Fortnite will be down as Epic Games updates the game. Because of this, fans won’t be able to see what this “new” island has in store until the servers come back up. That said, they’ll have plenty to talk about. Not only was “The End” an entertaining ride, we got to learn more about the mysterious group called The Seven as well as a brief look at Dr. Slone and Jones’ relationship – we knew they were at odds but not necessarily to this extent. An action filled finale, the Rock reveal, and a few bits of Fortnite lore resulted in a grand time for those who participated.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 will be starting soon. In the meantime, we’ll be sure to keep you posted with any and all Fortnite related news. That includes sharing our thoughts on the past 15 Major Events in Fortnite, the most recent updates, and more.
