But they have also warned that some gamers risk missing out on what is being called Operation Sky Fire. ORIGINAL: Epic Games is launching what could be one of its most ambitious Fortnite live events ever.
As with past events, Fortnite fans will be able to jump into the game early to make sure they can reserve a spot. So why are gamers being warned that they could miss out on this week’s Operation Sky Fire live event?
And for today’s Fortnite event, that means joining the special servers at 8:30pm BST. The event itself will kick off at 9pm BST, or 4pm EDT if you live in the United States. Epic Games has confirmed that they will not be repeating today’s Fortnite live event at any time in the future.
And that’s why the Fortnite support team warns everyone interested in partaking to join thirty minutes before everything kicks off. Epic Games never designs these events to have a limit on how many can join, but it’s always hard to say just how many players will be able to log on at the same time.
There will be no other times to play it, meaning that Fortnite gamers in the UK must be free at 9pm BST. This means that if you want to enjoy it with your friends, you must reserve your place early and make sure you don’t lose connection.
And based on previous seasons, we would expect Fortnite Season 8 to begin around September 13, unless Epic Games decides on a very quick turnaround after the event. No set release date has been shared for when the changeover will happen but it seems likely that we learn more about it tomorrow. A message from Epic Games explains: “Operation: Sky Fire — Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 7 ending event — takes place at 4 PM ET on September 12. Join a strike team and sneak aboard the Mothership to deliver IO’s final message to the invading Aliens.
