Epic Games has recently confirmed that the one-time-only Fortnite “The End” event will take place next month, ushering in a new chapter. Fortnite Chapter 2 launched in the fall of 2019, and while Epic has released a constant stream of patches, changes, and new content since then, fans have grown increasingly impatient for a full refresh and (hopefully) new map.
The End event, on the other hand, will ultimately bring Fortnite Chapter 2 to a close with a climactic fight with the Cube Queen. The game will subsequently enter Chapter 3, about which Epic has not yet provided any details, but the anticipation is that we will be given a new map. Below is a small trailer as well as some extra information on The End event.
“The End” marks the finale of Fortnite Chapter 2. This climactic event will see players take on The Cube Queen in one last stand for the fate of the Island. Squad up with your friends and players around the world to take on the Sideways corruption. The End supports large parties of up to 16 players queued together, so bring the whole squad along. Be sure to log in early — The End playlist will be available in Fortnite 30 minutes before the start time for players to jump in.
The End is a one-time-only, in-game event. Content creators and players looking to relive the final moments of Fortnite Chapter 2 should take steps to record and archive their experience as replays will not be available. Players will be unable to edit their settings once The End begins, so please adjust any visual options to your preferred viewing experience before joining. Because the Season will end a day early, all players who log in before the end of the season will receive a 225,000 XP reward. To immortalize The End, players who fight back The Cube Queen will unlock a special Loading Screen and Wrap!
Fortnite is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Switch, and mobile platforms. The End event kicks off on December 4 at 1 pm PT.
