Fortnite Chapter 2 is coming to an end, Epic finally confirmed following weeks of rumors and fan theories. More specifically, Fortnite is coming to The End, which is the name given to the Chapter 2 finale event that you can be a part of, but like some past events, this is a one-time show, so you’ll want to be there right when it all goes down. Here’s all you need to know about Fortnite: The End – Chapter 2 Finale.
Fortnite: The End – Chapter 2 Finale Start Time
Fortnite’s sure-to-be epic finale event kicks off on December 4 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET across all platforms. If you’re interested in joining the story event, it’s recommended that you queue into the playlist as early as 30 minutes ahead of time to ensure you can reserve your seat for the figurative fireworks.
Naturally, we don’t know a heck of a lot regarding what the event will entail beyond reasonable assumptions from years of similar events and current happenings in the story. Our Fortnite Season 8 story recap lays out all the facts as we know them, but no one outside of Epic knows how it will all end just yet.
Given that this is the end of not just the season, but also the entire chapter, it’s safe to assume a new island is on the way to Fortnite, much like how Chapter 2 saw the disappearance of Athena and the subsequent arrival of Apollo. The new island, rumored to be named Artemis, will likely be quite different from what we’ve seen before, because that’s the expectation Epic has set for itself by now, four years into the massive live-service experiment that is Fortnite.
If you notice in the key art above, the words “The End” also seem to be styled with upside-down terrain drawn into the letters. This is probably another hint at the next island’s “flipside” rumor, which in lore terms seems to indicate that the island of Artemis is somehow the inverse or upside-down version of Apollo. We’ll understand that better in a few days, no doubt. For now, it makes me dizzy.
The finale event coming on December 4 means the season will end a day earlier than originally planned, and because of that, Epic will gift 225,000 XP to all players who log in before the beginning of The End. Playing through The End will also net you an exclusive loading screen and wrap to commemorate the incoming apparent cataclysm.
In anticipation of the finale event, Epic has also stressed that you should seek to finish off your Toona Fish color bottle styles, Cube Queen challenges, and other battle pass rewards, as once The End arrives, those rewards will be locked for good as loopers around the world are flung headfirst into a new Fortnite reality.
Additionally, prices on items around the island will be half-price to encourage you to spend your gold bars before they expire. You can also enjoy a third and final Power Leveling Weekend if you need to finish off the battle pass. Increased XP gains can be had between November 26 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET and November 29 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET.
The End is here, but surely The End is just a new beginning. Get ready, loopers. It’s about to get weird again.
