Fortnite will maintain its subsequent dwell occasion on Friday, sixth August at 11.05pm UK time (that is 6.05pm Jap, or 3.05pm Pacific).
This might be Fortnite’s first huge dwell occasion in fairly a while – since final December’s big Marvel season finale – and, unusually, it’s coming in the course of the sport’s present UFO-themed season.
What can we anticipate to occur? Nicely, leaks and Epic’s own legal documentation have pegged an Ariana Grande live performance as coming quickly – although the present state of the island suggests this may in some way be wrapped into its present alien theme.
As we speak, Fortnite obtained its 17.21 replace seemingly designed to prep the sport for the occasion. I am reminded of how Fortnite slowly bought its island prepared for the last big concert, for Travis Scott, which entertained 27.7 million individuals final summer season.
Spoilers for subsequent week’s occasion are already doing the rounds on social media, which we have chosen to not publish right here.
For now, anybody can load into Fortnite and stare upon an enormous purple countdown clock within the centre of the map, beneath the large UFO mothership. All eyes might be on that subsequent Friday, as its backside portal opens…
