Epic Games have finally confirmed that Season 8 will be the last in Fortnite Chapter 2, and the grand finale is right around the corner. Here’s how you can watch Fortnite’s The End event ahead of Chapter 3.
Fortnite Chapter 2 is coming to a close, and it’s time for players to prepare for The End. Epic have officially confirmed that the battle with the Cube Queen will spell the end for this era of the battle royale.
The change from Chapter 2 to Chapter 3 will happen after The End event, which all of Season 8 has been building towards.
We’ll have to wait and see if the rumors about the black hole from Season 1 returning are true, but here’s how you can see the chaos unfold for yourself.
Fortnite Chapter 2 The End event date
Marking the finale of Fortnite Chapter 2, The End event takes place on Saturday, December 4 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM GMT.
Unlike previous live events held in Fortnite, this will be a one-off spectacle that won’t be replayed at a later time, because Chapter 3 starts shortly after.
Epic have urged anyone who wants to relieve the event after it goes live should “take steps to record and archive their experience.”
The End will bring Season 8 to a close a day earlier than expected. But don’t worry, players who log in before the end of the season will receive 225,000 XP to make up for it.
How to watch Fortnite The End event
You can watch The End by dropping into the event-specific playlist. Simply load up the game and hit the option for “The End.”
The playlist will go live 30 minutes before it kicks off for players to prepare to watch the destruction.
Parties of up to 16 players can join, up from the usual four, so you bring the whole squad along for what is sure to be a huge moment in Fortnite lore.
That was everything you need to know about how to watch the Chapter 2 finale, The End.
It’s worth remembering that Punchcard Quests and Gold Bars don’t carry over. So, be sure to grind out any objectives and burn through those bars before heading into Chapter 3.

Leaked Fortnite x Dead by Daylight crossover: Rumors, possible character skins
A Dead by Daylight crossover is reportedly on its way to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about it, including all leaked cosmetics.
Epic Games are reportedly gearing up to bring a Dead by Daylight crossover to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know, including all leaked cosmetic skins and rumors.
Epic Games have added numerous crossovers that have brought new cosmetic skins to Fortnite, from popular fictional characters like Indiana Jones and Spider-Man to real-life celebrities like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
We’ve also seen crossovers with other popular video game franchises, and some new leaks suggest that Fortnite’s devs are currently planning a collaboration with survival-horror game Dead by Daylight.
Fortnite x Dead by Daylight leaked cosmetic skins
On June 26, prominent Fortnite leaker ‘Shiina’ tweeted that an anonymous source sent them images of a new Llama Charm as well as a new cosmetic skin of Meg Thomas from Dead by Daylight.
According to the leaker, this crossover “might happen soon” and would add new cosmetic items for both games. Dead by Daylight players will be able to earn the Llama Charm, and the Meg Thomas skin will arrive in Fortnite.
Rumors of this crossover were sparked by Twitter user ‘McNeil Racing77’ who shared a few images on June 9, claiming that Dead by Daylight characters had been spotted in a Fortnite survey.
These mentioned the names of David, Dwight, and The Legion from the horror-survival title, and it’s possible that they might all be added to Fortnite as part of the same cosmetic bundle. Interestingly, Meg Thomas wasn’t mentioned in this leaked survey.
While this all seems exciting, it’s worth keeping in mind that this information has yet to be verified by the developers of either game, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until there’s an official announcement.
We’ll keep checking for more leaks and information about the Fortnite and Dead by Daylight crossover, including the release dates and additional cosmetic items. Once we learn more, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite leak claims skateboards coming soon as new movement mechanic
A new leak has emerged, suggesting that Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 will add a skateboard and skating mechanic.
According to new Fortnite leaks, Epic Games are planning to add skating mechanics and a new skateboard vehicle in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3.
The developers always keep the game fresh with new content, and a new leak suggests that they’re currently working on a new mechanic and vehicle that will be introduced in Chapter 3, Season 3.
Notable Fortnite leaker ‘HYPEX’ claims that Epic Games are developing new skating mechanics that will make way for the addition of skateboards or roller skates in the battle royale title.
The leaker stated that this new mechanic will be similar to the in-game sliding, as you’ll be slower when going uphill and faster coming down. If this leak is accurate, then players will have a new way to get around the map.
Another leaker with the name ‘InTheShade’ tweeted a gameplay video showcasing this new mechanic in action. While the video is obviously just a rough test, it shows the Fortnite player sliding across the map without crouching.
The character also moves faster when going downhill and is able to kick the board to pick up some speed. Moreover, it seems like jumping from heights with a skateboard will allow you to avoid heavy fall damage.
At the time of writing, it’s unclear if this mechanic will actually make its way into Fortnite, as this information is based purely on leaks. We’ll need to wait for Epic Games to confirm whether or not players will be able to skate in the game.
The developers have added skating-themed summer cosmetics in the Item Shop before, so it would make sense for them to add skateboards as well as a new POI that resembles a skate park.
