The mysterious Fortnite cube is on the move, and it has been all weekend. The destination is still a matter of speculation, but what’s certain is that the purple object is tilting over itself every hour and 43 minutes, slowly ambling to some new location on the map. It heads in a specific direction, turning every so often along the way.
Given the sporadic nature of the tilts, you might want to know precisely when the cube’s going to make its move. Luckily, the ever-intrepid Fortnite community has done exactly that, recording all the timestamps when the cube turns, and noting when its trajectory changes for posterity.
Pacific: 12:16:58, 1:59:49, 3:42:40, 5:25:32, 7:08:23, 8:51:15, 10:34:06
Eastern: 1:34:06, 3:16:58, 4:59:49, 6:42:41, 8:25:32, 10:08:24, 11:51:15
BST: 1:25:32, 3:08:23, 4:51:15, 6:34:06, 8:16:58, 9:59:49, 11:42:41
You can append ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ to each set of timestamps, since those times line up exactly at 12-hour intervals. You can catch see a full calendar courtesy of 7strikes on Reddit, who has also noted those points of significant change in the cube’s path.
Siloxleaks on Twitter has also taken to the task of mapping out the cube’s movements.
