Fortnite players worried they’ll be missing out on the live event due to long queue times will have two more chances to see The Big Bang, confirms Epic Games.
The Big Bang event in Fortnite is scheduled to start in less than an hour but players are already complaining about long queue times that will see them miss out – luckily, Epic is adding more shows to the schedule.
Excitement level are brimming over in the run up to The Big Bang event in Fortnite. The event is set to kick off with an in-game Eminem concert, and combined with the fact that it’s the first Fortnite live event we’ve had since 2022’s The Fracture, it’s no wonder players are champing at the bit to get in.
Epic Games advised dropping into the game 30 minutes before the concert, which give you plenty of time to don your Fortnite Eminem skin and accessories. But players on social media are already reporting super long queue times which would see them miss the event.
Happily, the published took to Twitter to share the news that this year’s Fortnite live event is giving everyone the chance to partake, with two more showings of The Big Bang lined up after the first show at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST / 11am PST.
“Well that escalated quickly. Whether you’re in the lobby or in a queue, fear not! We’ll be adding two more showings of The Big Bang after the 2pm ET show.”
Runtime for Fortnite live events can be anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, and the additional shows will presumably run back to back, given the wording of the tweet. So the second Fortnite live event of the day will kick off around 7.15pm – 7.30pm GMT / 2.15pm – 2.30pm EST / 11.151m – 11.30am PST. And the third and final Fortnite live event show will start anywhere from 7.30pm – 7.45pm GMT / 2.30pm – 2.45pm PST / 11.30am – 11.45am.
We recommend sticking around in the queue regardless because you’re bound to get in to one of them!
