The King of Crossover Fortnite is ending Chapter 2, promising a next big event, called “The End,” which is set to pave the way forward for the next chapter of the game. It’s worth noting that the next chapter, presumably called “Chapter 3,” still has no dates or any official information attached to it. Still, the upcoming “The End” event is scheduled to begin on December 4. This marks the finale of Fortnite Chapter 2, allowing players to finally take on The Cube Queen in one last stand for the fate of the Battle Royale island. You can see the official announcement below:

According to Collider, the narrative development for the upcoming event dates back to Chapter 1, Season 5, and the appearance of Kevin the Cube, followed by the Convergence and the formation of The Cube Queen. Now, with the Convergence complete, The Cube Queen prepares her endgame for the Island and changes the course of Fortnite history. Players are strongly encouraged to pick up their weapons and fight the “ultimate destroyer of all reality” in this one-time-only in-game event and battle for their legacy.

This is similar to the previously held event, when an enormous black hole appeared, marking the ending of Chapter 1 and the transition to Chapter 2. It caused several rifts to appear in the sky, leading to a catastrophic meteor that crashed into the game’s world. The game went offline for some time, leaving players to stare at the black hole until Fortnite Chapter 2 was finally officially announced. The upcoming “The End” event in Fortnite will allow players around the world to team up into large parties of up to 16 players and take on the Sideways corruption. Anyone interested in attending the event should log into the game earlier — the playlists will be available in-game 30 minutes prior to the start time for players to jump in.

It’s worth noting that “The End” is a one-time-only in-game event, so content creators and gamers who want to relive the final moments of Chapter 2 should take steps to record and archive their gaming experience since Epic won’t repeat the event and replays won’t be available. Additionally, gamers won’t be able to edit their settings once the event begins, so Epic Games strongly encourages gamers to adjust any visual options according to their preferences before joining the event. The rewards for participating in the “The End” event in Fortnite include a special Loading Screen and Wrap and 225,000 XP rewards to all players who log in before the end of the Season.

Additionally, to end Chapter 2 in style, Fortnite will host a Power Leveling Weekend, starting November 26 through 29, to put the cherry on top of Season 8 — one of the most eventful seasons in terms of collaborations with other media. It crossed Battle Royale with Dune, Naruto, League of Legends, Resident Evil, and it even allowed players to kill Superman. Keep in mind that the game will most likely be offline for a couple of hours following the conclusion of “The End” event, as the game transitions towards Chapter 3.
