The upcoming live Fortnite event, The Big Bang, is scheduled for December 2, 2023. The event will start at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET, as announced. As usual, players can enter the map half an hour early. This event, which allows participation in teams of four, will potentially completely obliterate the Fortnite OG map.

Epic Games will perform a two-hour pre-event maintenance for readiness. This means that on December 2, normal matchmaking will be shut down at 2 AM PT / 12 PM ET.

If you’re planning to join the upcoming Fortnite event, be aware of health risks. The event includes intense flashing lights. These can be risky for those with photosensitivity, seizures, or epilepsy. Medical professionals advise consulting with a doctor before engaging in such experiences. You can see all the warnings in the official statement.
