UPDATE: Epic Games has revealed more about the plans for this evening’s end of season event.
According to Epic Games, Creative, Save the World, Custom matches and Party Royale will be taken offline at 7pm GMT.
Competitive playlists will be disabled an hour later at 8pm GMT. Fans can login to ‘The End’ playlist from 8.30pm UK time.
ORIGINAL: Fortnite developer Epic Games has warned players to login early for today’s end of season event.
Titled ‘The End’, the end of season 8 event will usher in the start of Chapter 3, complete with a new map, Battle Pass, skins and lots more.
The end of season event starts at 9pm GMT UK time on December 4, although you’ll need to login early to guarantee your place.
Indeed, Epic Games has issued a warning to players to join the game early. This is because servers are likely to be extremely busy, and may fill up.
If you want to ensure you get a space for the end of season event, then you should login at 8.30pm GMT UK time.
Better yet, you can play the end of season event in parties of up to 16 people, which means you can enjoy ‘The End’ with all your friends.
It’s extremely important you take Epic Games’ advice, because this is a one-time only event that won’t be repeated.
And what an event it’s going to be! According to the latest reports, ‘The End’ will run for a whopping 15 minutes.
This makes it the longest and most epic Fortnite Battle Royale live event of all time.
The event will see players team up to battle the Cube Queen, who will gain destructive powers from the pyramid.
There are rumours that players will be able to use old-school weapons to take on a huge boss.
The mysterious fort that has popped up in recent weeks is also likely to play a part in the event.
As you can see from the teaser trailer below, it looks like the entire island will flip upside down, potentially revealing a new map.
The recently released teaser trailer ends with a huge tidal wave wiping out our heroes. Maybe they’ll wash up on a new island for Chapter 3.
Speaking of Chapter 3, it looks like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will also make an appearance in Fortnite.
The Rock has been linked with the role of The Foundation, one of the major players in a storyline group known as The Seven.
In a recent promotional video for his brand of energy drinks, Johnson dropped multiple hints that he would appear as The Foundation.
