Fortnite is about to have what’s more likely to be its largest in-game occasion but, on condition that Epic is continually attempting to prime themselves. For weeks now, gamers have been fixing in-game challenges to activate 5 runes at a mysterious machine beneath Loot Lake, with the aspect impact of destabilizing the close by volcano with every new activation.
Yesterday, a countdown appeared over Loot Lake, which means we all know precisely when the occasion goes to occur. What time is the occasion? That will be three PM ET, or 12 PM PT. Reportedly Epic goes to be doing the Marshmello live performance factor the place they limit playlists to a particular variant so that everybody must be in the identical sort of recreation on the identical time. It additionally appears seemingly there’s going to be one other part of invincibility the place gamers can’t kill one another, and are pressured to observe…no matter is unfolding. This isn’t how earlier occasions have gone till the Marshmello occasion, nevertheless it’s more likely to be the case going ahead.
So the place must you be in-game at three PM? There are a selection of choices, given what we do know in regards to the occasion because of datamining.
The volcano is erupting, that a lot we all know for positive. So listed below are quite a few potential areas to be as a way to watch this factor:
The Volcano – Need to see it erupt up shut and private? Be at liberty to hang around on the rim and see for those who can survive it. However I wouldn’t suggest it.
Retail Row – One of many main areas that’s getting destroyed by the volcano and reworked into…one thing else.
Tilted Towers – After a full 12 months of predictions that one occasion or one other would destroy Tilted Towers, it’s lastly going to occur as we speak, and also you would possibly need to witness it dwell inside town itself.
Polar Peak – Not solely will you’ve gotten a terrific view of the whole lot from on excessive, however we all know that Polar Peak goes to have its central iceberg broken by the volcano blast, even being this far-off from issues.
Loot Lake – Truthfully, as a lot as I need to watch destruction occur everywhere in the map dwell, we are able to’t overlook that moreover the volcano, one thing goes to occur with this large alien machine in Loot Lake, whether or not it’s a spaceship or one thing else. That is the place the countdown timer is in any case, so it looks as if Epic needs you to be right here over most different locations. That is the place I’m going to be.
Epic at all times manages to cover a number of tips up their sleeve, so that is clearly going to be extra than simply the volcano erupting and destroying components of the map. Everybody predicted the rocket launch, however nobody predicted all of the rifts, as an illustration.
Regardless of the case, that is going to be a type of can’t-miss moments in Fortnite/gaming historical past, so be sure to have your spot picked out and your schedule cleared for three PM ET as we speak. See you on the market.
