The new Fortnite update is releasing today, and Epic Games has confirmed that servers are shutting down so that maintenance can be performed.
Update 17.50 will be the next major Season 7 patch. The development team teased some things that might be added.
Epic Games claims that the next content update will come from outer space. This could refer to the return of friendly faces.
Kevin the Cube is rumored to be back at Fortnite Season 7, with a connection to Fortnite Chapter 3.
Fortnite players who have been around for a while will be familiar with the Cube. He was prominently featured in season 5 and 6.
Kevin remained for quite some time, and was an important part of the story. However, he was eventually removed.
Kevin may be able to participate in the Fortnite Live Event, which might be announced as soon as September 3.
Another rumour suggests that we’ll get another weapon in Fortnite Season 7. This would make Epic have the opportunity to fix any balance issues and give them the time to do so before the next season begins.
