Fortnite Season 5 is right around the corner, with “the biggest event in Fortnite history” coming tomorrow, December 1.
We still have no idea exactly what will happen when Galactus comes to Fortnite, but early indications are that we’ll be experiencing a trip through time – with all of the past events playing a role in this one.
If you’re as eager to see this event as we are, you may have some questions about the best way to watch. Here’s everything you need to know.
Epic has told players that the event will kick off on December 1, 2020, at 4 PM EST. Players in the US tend to know what this means for their local time zone, but players in other countries may not.
The r/FortniteBR subreddit mods created an easy-to-read table that tells players in many major regions when the event will begin for them.
What’s more, we’ve been told that the only way to secure a spot in this event is to log in at least an hour before it starts. This table tells you when you should be at your computer or console, loading-up Fortnite.
How to Watch
The best way to watch the Season 4 Fortnite event will be to log into the game about an hour early to secure your spot, as we stated above. Of course, not everyone will be able to do it.
The event takes place at 4 PM EST on Tuesday, which is 1 PM PST. A lot of US viewers are going to be at work or in school. Thankfully, Twitch allows you to watch your favorite Fortnite streamer experience the event – another way to get in on the action if you cannot log in.
This time, Epic seem to have brought live viewing to the Fortnite Discord server, as well. We don’t know exactly how this will work, but there’s a channel labeled “Watch Live Event,” which could mean that an Epic employee will be streaming the event to Discord.
