We now have details on exactly when the next Fortnite live event, named The End, is going to start as it has been officially confirmed by Epic for Saturday December 4, so mark that date on your calendar. After they've been ominously hovering over an increasingly busy gathering of cubes at the center of the island, we know that a final showdown against the Fortnite Cube Queen is on the cards for the fate of the island, and we've been promised that "nothing will ever be the same" after fighting the ultimate destroyer of reality. You only get one shot at this, so make it a good one.

The stakes for this Fortnite live event have been ramped up by Epic, as it not only concludes the current season but the chapter as well, to lead us into Fortnite Chapter 3 before 2022 rolls around. We can expect things to get explosive during this finale, and reality could potentially be ripped apart to completely change the face of Fortnite once The End is concluded. With official confirmation received, here's everything you need to know about when the Fortnite live event is and how you can take part in it.

While some previous Fortnite live events have premiered on YouTube, The End is going to be another fully interactive experience similar to Operation Sky Fire that you can only take part in through the game. Epic have also warned that replay mode will not be available for this event, so streamers and players alike should take steps to record proceedings if they want to share them later. If you're still looking for video content then keep an eye on the Fortnite YouTube channel, as anything official will appear there.

The next Fortnite live event, The End, is officially taking place on Saturday December 4 at 1pm PST / 4pm EST / 9pm GMT. These Fortnite live events are always exceedingly popular, so here are some tips to make sure you don't miss out. Firstly, check in advance that you have the latest version of Fortnite downloaded and installed. Next, it's advised that you log into the game at least an hour prior to the event start time, in case the servers start to reach capacity, then keep a look out for the event playlist to go live approximately 30 minutes before the start time so you can jump in and reserve your spot for The End.
