‘Fortnite’ ahead of Season 3 start time after chaotic live event finale

Well, there is one more Live Fortnite Event in the books, the end of Chapter 3 Season 2, where players have been assigned to a giant Mechabear battle mech to save the island for the tenth or eleventh time. We’ve only failed twice so far!

This event has now taken the game offline as Season 2 ends ahead of the debut of Season 3 tomorrow morning Sunday 5th June. it seems whatever that might be. Kind of reminds me of Avatar and Pandora, and I certainly wouldn’t push that kind of crossover past Fortnite. Although this film won’t be out until December. And we’ve had a very clear indication of another major pop culture figure arriving next season.

First the event:

Things started with a waiting screen where players were in the helm unit of the mechabear that had previously killed the monster on the old map. We took off from the Seven’s lunar base and landed on the island to do battle with a slew of tanks and blimps throwing missiles at us. Here, as with many of Fortnite’s recent events, follows a sort of mini co-op mission on rails that I’m pretty sure you can’t effectively fail if you try.

However, using your minigun to light tanks on the map was pretty cool. In the middle, the bear is injured and drinking a whole truckload of SLURP juice, which was pretty funny. Then your minigun gets unlimited fire potential, you blow up more stuff and reach the center.

Before you can throw your sword into IO’s doomsday device, the ground explodes and Jonesy leads your team through a brief firefight next to the Foundation. The Zero Point features various multiverses, including one showing a fight between Obi-Wan and definitely Darth Vader, with Vader appearing to be part of next season’s Battle Pass. My guess is the level 100 skin and we’ll see if other Star Wars skins follow. Obi-Wan is already in the game.

Her team stops the crystal from reaching the top, and Foundation and Jonesy go after Geno. Nothing on the island was really destroyed except for the huge device itself. And I’m guessing all the tanks we blew up. And the stuff near the tanks. Anyway, I’m expecting new zones, but it’s not like we know that a bunch of certain landmarks got destroyed this time.

When is Fortnite coming back? Definitely tomorrow morning. I’m guessing it’s around 8am but the patch will be out before then and dataminers will be crazy with it as always. But now you get a night off Fortnite. Go and play something else!
