Fortnite’s huge Eminem ‘Big Bang’ live-event will end the Fortnite OG season and kick off a “new beginning” for the battle royale game.
The live-event is the first we’ve had in quite some time, and brings to an end the most popular—but also shortest—season in Fortnite’s history. Fortnite OG was so popular that over 100 million players hopped into the game during November to try out the original map and weapons. That’s the most engagement Fortnite has ever seen, including when it was in its heyday years ago.
Now the season is drawing to a close. Today, the Big Bang live-event will change everything—though we are not sure what Epic Games has in mind when they say it’s a “new beginning for Fortnite.”
But before the next season begins, the Big Bang live-event goes live, featuring none other than legendary Eminem. There are themed skins in the shop before the event, with Rap Boy, Slim Shady and Marshall Never More Outfits going live earlier this week.
The Big Bang event kicks off Saturday, December 2nd at 2pm ET / 11am PT. Players will be able to login to the event’s pre-lobby 30 minutes ahead of time, which is highly recommended to avoid long queues that could interfere with your ability to get into the game. You can play with friends in parties of up to four people.
