Season 6, with the slogan “Darkness Rises”, of Fortnite: Battle Royale started on September 27th, 2018, and ended on December 5th, 2018.

The theme revolves around Darkness and the Cube, just in time for the Halloween season.

Season 6 was the first season to introduce pets and music to the game, as well as a new consumable, Shadow Stones. Changes to the map include the addition of corrupted areas, corn fields, Floating Island, and the Haunted Castle. You can find the full list of Cosmetics released this season here.

How did it Start?

Season 6 continues the storyline that was started in Season 3. The runes that were created by Kevin The Cube in Season 5 started to corrupt the areas around them, leaving them dead and spawning Shadow Stones, rocks shaped like Kevin that give ghostly abilities. The cube reforms, and attaches to the Loot Lake island, rising out of the lake, supported by a tornado, leaving a giant, glowing hole in Loot Lake. Kevin was back, and with a new house to suit.

The Season 6 Storyline

Not long after, the island began moving to the runes and activating them, with lightning striking each one. The cube was glowing brighter after each rune was active. After it finished activating the final runes, it lifted all the runes out of the ground and draws them to it near the mountain near Dusty Divot. Kevin absorbed all the power of the now activated runes and dropped them to the ground when he was done. It then headed back to Leaky Lake and started to absorb power out of the vortex in the depths of Loot Lake.

The Start of Fortnitemares 2018

Soon after, Kevin shot up a purple beam of light to the sky and created a huge, swirling portal. The power blew up the island it was holding (destroying the house) and the pieces of Kevin that had grown around the house as Kevin activated the runes, they flew all over the map and began spawning Cube Monsters. These monsters could be killed for shield and loot. Kevin also created smaller Cube Fragments. Later, Kevin's outer shell began to crack and continued to crack throughout the week until eventually the outer shell fell off. Starting from then, every hour Kevin would drop a strange liquid into the vortex, its power draining slightly after every drip.

Welcome to the In-Between

On November 4th, during a live event, the final drip dropped from the now white/purple Kevin, it began spinning rapidly and charging up until it finally exploded and destroyed itself, teleporting every player to a white dimension dubbed the In-between. A rift then appeared and turned into a butterfly. The butterfly flew around for a while, your skins head following it wherever it went. Your player eventually reached out, the rift butterfly landing on their finger and everything turns white. Suddenly, you're back in the sky above a new version of Loot Lake, dubbed Leaky Lake The shards of the floating island had made new islands around the lake, now containing more chests then before. Kevin's remains are located in the center of Leaky Lake, marking the end of The Cube's life.

Continuing On...

After the event, A Pizza Pete's Food Truck is found near the Durr burger restaurant in Greasy Grove, a sign on the door showing it's been infested with cockroaches forcing the restaurant to close for good. Durr Burger, wanting revenge, created its own food truck and went to war with Pizza Pit. The two food trucks raced throughout the map. At the end of the season, both food trucks set up shop in Retail Row. Meanwhile, a robot named A.I.M landed at Flush Factory. He made his way over to Leaky Lake, watching over the player and later to a dance party at Tilted Towers, as shown in loading screens.

How did it End?

Late in the season, an Iceberg was spotted moving towards the island. Leakers later found that Polar Peak sat inside. It ended up covering some POIs in the bottom left of the map, such as Flush Factory and Greasy Grove. A couple of days later, downtime began, and Season 7 begins, a Snow/Christmas theme becoming apparent quickly.
