There’s been some fervent speculation recently regarding what’s going to be Fortnite’s next live event, following the rather sensational closer to the Chapter 1 a few weeks ago.
Well, we finally know what’s going to topple that particular historical live showcase and well, it’s Star Wars.
To be precise, Fortnite’s own drive-in cinema Risky Reels will be premiering an exclusive scene from the upcoming Rise of Skywalker, live, in the bloody video game on December 14th at 1.30pm EST (That’s 6.30pm for us Brits).
If you head into Fortnite now you’ll see posters for the event all over the place along with the massive screen at Risky Reels revealing the event through a time and date where you’ll need to be at the location in order to watch.
Here are some screens I grabbed whilst running around. Yes, my level is ridiculous. Somebody help me?
If you’re familiar with Risky Reels you’ll know that it’s normally full of empty cars. To get prepared for the upcoming premiere though, the cars are being removed and the location is getting cleaned up. It’s yet another example of Fortnite’s environmental storytelling that’s pretty much unsurpassed anywhere else.
So if you want to get involved make sure you’re logged into Fortnite at those times next Saturday. Our advice? Get in early, it’s never easy to log in the game when these awesome live events are scheduled.
