‘Fortnite’ Has a New Year’s Eve Event Happening and Everyone’s Invited

Fortnite New Years Event

At that moment, Epic Games did not comment on the leaked event, but Rein explained later that the event was on schedule and everything went as planned.

Epic Games isn't the only developer doing something special for New Years, but is the most popular game on the planet right now, so their event is truly worldwide and has player numbers that easily surpass any other game.

Epic Games' Fortnite has already been quite busy in the midst of its "14 Days of Fortnite" event, but that doesn't mean the team isn't willing to have some fun for New Year's. However, the Epic Games news threw many players off guard when they witnessed the fireworks arrive early for their time zones. As soon as the disco ball got lowered, the countdown on the sky appeared as the disco ball spins and emits light which is synced to the music. Players who plan to play for multiple hours this evening might get their own look at the event ahead of time, assuming they're in a match when the clock ticks over in a different time zone. So the event is location-based, but it may or may not happen at exactly midnight for you.

As noted by FortniteINTEL, this event began around 11pm ET yesterday and has been happening every hour, on the hour, since. Check out this link on Twitter, where you can see the event live starting with 11:00 PM GMT+2.
