Fortnite 's Rocket first made its debut alongside the Battle Royale map changes that went live at the start of Season 4 in May. Whatever Epic has been planning this whole time, we'll finally see the fruits of their labor on Saturday afternoon.
The exact reason why is not clear, but it seems that Epic was extremely keen on letting everybody know - perhaps to ensure that a bunch of gawkers don't show up on Sunday for the glorious spectacle that is a crushing wave of realisation that you missed the actual glorious spectacle. A countdown in the game also appeared that led gamers to believe the rocket would launch, but when the timer hit zero, nothing happened. The event, which is now referred to as 'Blast Off!' will only happen once so this will be the only chance players get to see what unfolds. Whether or not the mode will be released again anytime soon remains unclear at this point in time.
It's also been rumoured that out of that smouldering hole where the rocket lands, a Fortnite Leviathan creature will surface.
Two Epic Buddies said that Fortnite season 4 will end with two limited time modes (LTM).
Epic developers took to reddit to explain what Fornite's latest LTM needs, and why it's proved such a strain on the server. Fortnite players have scorned the vast distance between the second and third circles, which made Final Fight more of a race than a battle for players unlucky enough to be on the other side of the map.
For those wanting to watch the big rocket event, it can be found by gliding into the B4 coordinates on your map.
Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play game now available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and iOS.
