Fortnite Chapter 2 is officially drawing to a close next month, making way for Fortnite's next chapter, Epic Games has announced.
To see off Chapter 2, Fortnite will be hosting a one-time only in-game event known as “The End” on 4th December 2021, at 21:00 GMT / 13:00 PT. It seems that this time round, the island is being obliterated by The Cube Queen, with The Convergence complete.
“The End is a one-time only, in-game event. Content creators and players looking to relive the final moments of Fortnite Chapter 2 should take steps to record and archive their experience as replays will not be available,” says Epic Games in its announcement.
“Players will be unable to edit their settings once The End begins, so please adjust any visual options to your preferred viewing experience before joining. Because the Season will end a day early, all players who log in before the end of the Season will receive a 225,000 XP reward. To immortalize The End, players who fight back The Cube Queen by attending “The End” will unlock a special Loading Screen and Wrap!”
Players will need to complete any existing quests and unlock their rewards before the season ends, of course. We don't know what Fortnite Chapter 3 will look like, if it's anything like the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2 (which also coincided with an event called The End) then we should probably expect a brand new map and some new gameplay mechanics. Epic Games has also previously said that Fortnite will be moving over to Unreal Engine 5 in 2021, so this seems like a likely time for that change to happen.
