Epic Games has announced the finale event to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 and is simply known as “COLLISION”.
The event is set to determine the fate of the ZERO Point where all reality seemingly sprung from. COLLISION is set to go down next Saturday afternoon on June 4th at 4 PM ET.
Similar to past finales in the massively popular battle royale game, COLLISION is a one-time invitation only, so there is no chance of replaying the event, so either be there or miss out on it. Players can hype themselves earlier in the day before the season-ending event goes down by logging into the game after 8 a.m. ET on June 4th. Doing so, players will receive an exclusive Loading Screen and Lobby Track. A tidbit for later in the day, the COLLISION playlist will be available 30 minutes before the 4 PM ET start time on June 4th.
The final event of this season seems so far away. To prepare, players can visit the item shop and try on the Mecha Weapons Team Outfits, so you end the season in Mecha anime-ish style with your squad. Another way to prepare is to make sure your version of Fortnite on your platform of choice is updated to the current version. Do this the night before, so there are no excuses for why you couldn’t get into the event.
This past season has been eventful in certain ways. The first one that comes to mind is earlier in the season when Epic Games announced that all proceeds from purchases and V-bucks would go towards humanitarian relief for the people involved in the Ukrainian war. The fundraiser was only for two weeks from March 20th through April 3rd, but on the first day Epic Games easily raised $36 million USD and would go on to raise $100 million more by the end for a grand total of $144 million USD in Ukrainian aid.
Later in the season, Epic Games would collaborate with more companies and brands in Fortnite including Marvel and the return of Star Wars to the game. As a part of the Star Wars celebration, Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s debut was initially teased and later confirmed to release today, the Jedi Master’s inclusion is all a part of marketing for his upcoming Disney+ series which is set to premiere tomorrow with two episodes.
Fortnite is currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. It’s also available to play on mobile devices through cloud streaming via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta), and Nvidia GeForce NOW.
