Fortnite Battle Royale

Last Updated on

One of the very few things Epic Games does uniquely with Fortnite is their live events. These events occur at the same time and all players are able to see what is happening at the same time. Epic Games has set up tens of events, we will be listing all the major events chronologically. We will be also excluding music concerts/events.

Season 3 Meteor Event

Regarded as the game’s first and most remarkable event. The Meteor event started by fans noticing a very tiny glare in the sky. The glare grew larger day by day as it got closer to the Fortnite island.

Furthermore, the glare turned out to be a massive meteor that turned destroyed Dust Depot and made it into Dusty Divot. This event also marked the begging of Season 4.

Season 4 Rocket Event

One of the game’s most memorable and favorable events. The Blast Off event also happened near the end of the season. It was started by an NPC (non-player character), The Visitor, who is presumably an alien from space.

The rocket launches from the event unexpectedly teleporting from one area to another. It almost hits Tilted Towers but gets teleported by some mirror-like glass structure. The rocket then teleports and forms another massive mirror-like glass structure in the sky.

Season 5 Cube Event

Following the mysterious event that created an unknown crack in the sky, also was the game’s first major map change. The update added a whole desert area and Paradise Palms.

In that desert spawned a glowing purple cube with unreadable glyphs. The Cube, named by fans as “Kevin” went on a journey flipping around the entire area until he dropped in the waters of Loot Lake. The cube then dissolves turning the water into a bouncy purple liquid. Later, Season 5 ended.

Season 6 Return of the cube & The Rift Butterfly Event

Season 6 starts and Kevin recollects himself from the water to under the center of the house located in the center of the lake. The cube later emerged to create a few floating islands which could be accessible to players.
