Fortnite Storyline So Far

To better understand the storyline, players need to imagine that Fortnite's island is at the heart of an immense universe. This multiverse has room for everyone: from Lebron James to Superman.

These figures of popular culture survive inside Fortnite's simulation along with some of the famous characters like Midas, Jonesy, Peely, Jules and Brutus. However, the island and the multiverse is commanded by an organisation called the Imagined Order.

Season 5 & 6

Their mission is to prevent anyone from escaping the Fortnite loop. Agent Jonesy was originally a member of the Imagined Order.

The storyline in Season 5 revealed how Jonesy entered the island from outside the loop, which meant he can survive outside the loop.

Similarly, The Seven, are a group of mysterious characters in the Fortnite multiverse who strive to abolish the Imagined Order. The leader of the Seven, the Foundation, pulled a miracle when he saved the reality with Agent Jonesy.

Ultimately, the Foundation was stuck inside the Zero Point as he used all his strength to contain it. The Zero Point metamorphosed into the Spire at the start of Season 6, and this was the beginning of a primal ecosystem that took over Fortnite island.

Season 7

It was followed by Season 7 where the Imagined Order arrived on the island, along with Aliens. The alien-invasion themed season turned out to be a massive success as Doctor Slone took over the narrative.

She ended up betraying the residents of the island(players) and this turned her into an antagonist. It will be exciting to see how the narrative changes with Season 8. On one hand we have the cube, and on the other hand the Imagined Order.

Meanwhile, the storyline trailer ended with a major hint related to the Foundation's return in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8. He was last seen in the primal-themed season 6, and it will be interesting to see how that story develops.

This is where the narrative course of Fortnite Season 8 takes an enormous shift. Data miners, leakers and content creators are coming up with some interesting conjectures to define the cubed-themed storyline. While some of these speculations are fictitious, others appear to be deeply reliable.

So far, Epic Games has ensured that the cube-themed biome is taking over Fortnite island. This means that the entire island will be overrun by Aliens and Sideways. Multiple POIs will have different versions of Kevin the Cube, and Raptors, Wolves, Boars, will spawn across the map.

Players can also find small versions of these cubes all around the map. They are consumable and will temporarily turn into players into shadow wraiths.

For now, players can try to scour the map to find easter eggs that will reveal more about the cube-themed Fortnite Season 8.
