Fortnite The Device event times have been revealed, and you'll only have one chance to catch it before it goes off.

It looks like Fortnite The Device event will be the long-awaited bridge to Fortnite chapter 2 season 3 (opens in new tab), both considering the timing and the fact that Epic announced it along with a second delay for season 3 (opens in new tab).

Here's when Fortnite The Device event will begin, broken down by time zones. Keep in mind that Epic recommends you show up 30 minutes early for the event, since space will be limited and you won't get a second chance to see it in-game!

Epic Games hasn't provided any more official details beyond the name of the event and when it will begin, but it's a pretty good guess that it will concern the freaky doomsday device located in Midas' secret headquarters. Dataminers recently discovered (opens in new tab) the cutscene that seems to show Midas' plans all coming together - they also found the in-game countdown clock which has already gone live.

Now the question is where the device will appear, and what it will do once it gets there. Call of Duty: Warzone (opens in new tab) has given Fortnite (opens in new tab) some healthy competition in the battle royale market since chapter 2 began, and it's about time to see how Epic Games responds with a fresh new season.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
