Fortnite fans are counting down to the release of the Big Bang event, which marks the end of the OG Season. Available on PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Android and Nintendo Switch, the next Fortnite event takes place at 7pm GMT UK time on the evening of December 2. According to Epic Games, the event will open up to players 30 minutes before the start time, which means you can login and join the Big Bang at 6.30pm GMT.
“The Big Bang is a Fortnite event starting Saturday, December 2, 2023, at 2 PM ET,” reads an Epic post.
“The experience will be available in the Battle Royale tile in Discover 30 minutes prior, so you can jump in before the event starts to gear up with any of your cosmetics.”
Needless to say, there’s a chance the servers will be overloaded due to the popularity of the event, so it’s worth logging in early to avoid disappointment.
The Big Bang event supports teams of four players, so you can partner up with friends to enjoy the festivities.
Anybody who takes part in the event will also receive a Fortine x Eminem Big Bang loading screen for free.
Speaking of the rapper, a selection of Eminem skins are available in the item shop, complete with matching accessories.
While there’s sure to be a gameplay element to the Big Bang event, the highlight will be a concert by Eminem. It’s likely to be similar to the iconic Travis Scott performance from 2020.
To prepare for the event, Epic has confirmed plans to take certain experiences offline.
“To prepare for The Big Bang, Fortnite experiences made by Epic will be disabled starting 12 PM ET (5pm GMT UK time) on December 2.
“Creator-made experiences will remain enabled until downtime for Fortnite v28.00 starts at 11:30 PM ET (4.30am GMT on December 3 in the UK).”
Epic also warns that the event will contain flashing lights, which is worth keeping in mind if you suffer from epilepsy.
