Midas in 'Fortnite' Chapter 2 season 2
Epic Games

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is finally coming to an end after weeks of delays, and you’ll get to see it go out with a bang — possibly literally. The Device “doomsday” event is now slated to take place in the game at 2PM Eastern across all the platforms where Fortnite is available. As the developer warns, though, room is “limited.” You’ll want to arrive ahead of time, and Epic recommends showing up at least 30 minutes in advance.

If you can’t hop in yourself, you’ll likely find many streamers on Twitch or Mixer (such as DrLupo and Ninja) broadcasting the event.

The company hasn’t said much about what will happen besides Midas planning to activate his gadget. Various teasers have hinted at the possibility of a flooded map for Season 3, though, so you may want to get ready for some dramatic changes to the environment. Look at it this way, though: at least the world isn’t likely to collapse into a void like it did at the end of Chapter 1.
