Popular online battle royale game Fortnite has become more than just another game to play with your friends. Since it launched in 2017, it has become somewhat of a hangout spot, throwing live events and concerts to bring together players in non-competitive settings.
Live events have become one of Fortnite's biggest attractions. At the end of Chapter 1, the game's original map was sucked into a black hole, while Chapter 2 featured concerts from Travis Scott and Ariana Grande.
Since Chapter 3 was ushered in at the beginning of 2022, there haven't been many major live events yet (though there are some small happenings related to the game's lore that have players raising their eyebrows). When is the next Fortnite live event? Will Season 3 get one before it ends?
When is the next 'Fortnite' live event?
Season 1 of this new chapter for the game went out with relatively little fuss, ending on a weekend for the first time in many seasons for Fortnite. Season 2, on the other hand, brought the war between the Resistance and the IO to a head, ending the season with a bang.
The Imagined Order had been building a doomsday device known as The Collider underneath Loot Lake, and as part of the Season 2 live event finale, it was on the players to help destroy it.
Though the success of players' mission to destroy The Collider meant they could enjoy Season 3 in peace, it seems Season 4 will bring the previously bubbling war back to the surface.
It wasn't originally clear what would happen that could cause the war to reignite, but there are plenty of leaks online that suggest the Paradigm will return, as well as rumors that the whole island will be covered in a chrome liquid.
The "Fracture" Live Event in 'Fortnite' is scheduled for Dec. 3, 2022.
On Nov. 13, 2022, the official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted the above simple image confirming everyone's Fortnite dreams are coming true: A live event called "Fracture" is scheduled for Dec. 3, 2022 — just in time for the season finale.
As with all Fortnite live event announcements, there's not a ton of info yet about exactly what the Fracture event will entail, but people are already sharing their theories. One leaker shared footage of the lobby animation which seems to show players being surrounded by ooze and then being overtaken by a chrome tornado before they start floating — we can't wait to learn more about what that could possibly mean!
In the meantime, be sure to set your alarms for Dec. 3 — the event will go live at 4 p.m. ET!
