Epic Games has officially announced Fortnite’s next live event: The Big Bang. It’s set to kick off in-game on December 2.
For those unfamiliar, live events in Fortnite have historically been spectacles which occur within matches in ways that tie into the ongoing storyline. The last major one was called ‘Fracture’, which took place in early December last year at the end of Chapter Three: Season Four. That one concluded with the Fortnite island exploding, so it was rather intense, to say the least.
As for The Big Bang, Epic hasn’t yet outlined what exactly players can expect from it, but it’s been teased that it “marks a new beginning for Fortnite.” On social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), the official Fortnite account elaborated on this slightly and stated that the “unforgettable event” will be “evolving all things as you know them”, and before concluding, it will also include a “memorable reveal.”
A news post on the Fortnite blog states that the event will be playable from 2pm ET / 11am PT / 7pm GMT / 6am AEDT on December 2, and discoverable in the Battle Royale tile on the Discover screen half an hour before that so that you can get any cosmetics you want to wear sorted out beforehand. Parties of up to four players will be able to experience it together.
Before the event commences, Epic-made experiences will be disabled in Fortnite at 12pm ET / 9am PT / 5pm GMT / 4am AEDT on December 2, so be sure to make the most of those before they become temporarily unavailable.
Otherwise, Epic has also issued a photosensitivity warning due to the event’s flashing lights, so keep that in mind before loading in.
