It’s funny, we usually have a pretty good idea of what’s going to happen in a Fortnite live event, but with this one I really don’t have much of a clue. I feel like I know how it’s going to start: the rocket is going to launch. And I feel like I know how it’s going to end: the map is going to get sucked into a giant Rift or deleted in some way, shape, or form, making way for a new map in Season 11. In-between? That’s anyone’s guess.
In just a short while we’re going to see what sort of fireworks Epic has in mind for bidding goodbye to the island that we’ve spent 10 seasons on, and it’s promising to be a spectacle on par with the biggest events the team has put together in the past. Th best way to watch it will be to head in-game at 2:00 and watch it via the special event LTM. If you can’t do that, for whatever reason, Twitch has you covered. Here are a few Fortnite stars that can give you a lens into the event:
Like I said, it’s been a long road with this event, with a ton of live events in the past. Here’s the story, in short: the meteor appeared in the sky, and brought The Visitor with it. The Visitor launched the rocket, which opened a rift in the sky. The Rift brought Kevin the Cube, which melted into Loot Lake. That raised the Floating Island, which traveled the map before returning to Loot Lake and revealing an inter-dimensional vault with a magic butterfly inside. That vault was used to power a futuristic city, and also caused a volcano to erupt. The Volcano released a monster from an icy mountain, which fought a giant robot. Then time got stopped through some sort of mechanism, and here we are: another rocket, this one set to end things for good.
So sit back and enjoy the show. Something’s going to happen, and it’s going to be big. We’ll be here to let you know what’s up when the dust settles.
