What are the Cubes in Fortnite?

These mischievous purple Cubes have ill intent... Beware.

Now that the Aliens have perished in Fortnite' Season Eight, Chapter Two, there's an even bigger threat that players must focus on to protect the Island; Cubes.

The Cubes are mostly scattered around the ship's wreckage, along with Shadow Stones, which players can consume to dash around enemies as an obscured, blurred, revenant.
