Via Fortnite’s official website, here are the official patch notes for 18.21:

New Additions

The Cube Queen

The Cube Queen’s emergence brings changes to the Island.

Since Fortnitemares began (and even before), the Cubes have been mobilizing. Their migration towards the Island’s center wasn’t just to spread corruption — they’re now at the center forming The Convergence. What is the purpose of this mysterious structure?

You’ve come across the Cubes and fought back the Cube Monsters, but a new force has joined their ranks: Caretakers are The Cube Queen’s strongest warriors yet. Tall, foreboding, shadowy apparitions, their spectral tendrils pull you directly into The Sideways for a showdown on their home turf. Survive a Caretaker’s assault and you’ll walk away all the richer.

Horde Rush

Horde Rush is back! The Cube Monsters are pushing out of the Sideways and into our realm. Fight alongside your teammates to rack up your score by finding score multipliers, earning combos, and eliminating as many monsters as you can. To win, survive at locations across the map and take down the Final Boss!

Quests (Starting 19th October 2 pm at BST until 2nd November at 2 pm BST):

1. Complete general Fortnitemares Quests to unlock the Raven’s Curse Spray, the Midnight Showdown Loading Screen, and Wrathful Breakout Contrail.

2. Ariana Grande has returned to the Island, but now in new gear ready to take down monsters. “Spacefarer Ariana Grande,” the galaxy’s greatest monster hunter, is inviting you to join her hunt. Complete her Monster Hunter Questline to unlock the new All-Weather Extractor Pickaxe (Dark Style)!

3. Scrolls tell of the Spirit Vessel, a powerful artifact that can restore Dark Jonesy’s visions. Help Dark Jonesy in his The Oracle Speaks Questline to unlock the Cube Cruiser Glider, an unfolded Cube you can ride on!
