Fortnite Season 7 live event countdown timer: start date & theme
A countdown timer has appeared in the world of Fortnite, and it looks to be counting down the moments until the Season 7 live event.
Excitement is at an all-time high in the world of Fortnite regarding Season 7, as a countdown timer has appeared in the popular game and is counting down the moments until the next live event kicks off.
There are many things that have made Fortnite one of the most popular games in the world over the past couple of years, with one of the most important being the exciting live events that Epic Games has pulled off over the course of the game’s many seasons.
These live events have been everything from concerts to giant battles where millions of players have been able to experience the adrenaline-fueled action all at the same time.
While the end of Season 6 and the start of Season 7 did not see a live event occur, this does not look to be the case for the end of Season 7 and the start of Season 8, as a Fortnite live event countdown timer has officially appeared in the popular game.
Fortnite live event countdown timer
Players soon noticed this Fortnite live event countdown timer in the game’s sky when they were playing and in the lobby in between matches.
Based on the amount of time this timer began with when it first appeared, it looks as though the highly anticipated live event will occur on August 6, 2021, at 3 PM PST/ 5 PM CST/ 6 PM EST.
It is unknown exactly what will happen when this Fortnite live event countdown timer hits zero on August 6.
However, with this season’s theme being all about an alien invasion, the alien mothership that has been hanging around might likely be ready to make some noise and shake up the Fortnite world in a major way.
An Ariana Grande concert event has also been leaked to be taking place sometime this season, so there is a possibility that this time is counting down until this leaked event. Still, players will have to wait until it hits zero before we officially know or an announcement is made by Epic Games.

Battlefield 2042 post-launch content each season will reportedly be massive
It seems Battlefield 2042 will be following the seasonal format that so many games have been taking on, with reports that it could be huge.
Battlefield 2042’s post-launch seasonal content will reportedly be massive, keeping things fresh by giving players an abundance of new content to enjoy.
We have been blessed with lots of information regarding DICE’s upcoming release, especially at the EA Play Live event recently. It seems Battlefield 2042 will be offering a variety of content at launch, with the recent announcement of the Portal mode getting players most excited for its release.
In more recent news, rumors have come out surrounding the post-launch content Battlefield 2042 will offer players, suggesting it may be massive.
Battlefield 2042 will release October 22, but for those who can’t wait as long as that, be sure to check out the details for the upcoming September Open Beta.
Most recent online-based games have taken the Fortnite formula of seasonal content. This way, the game stays fresh. Instead of releasing a new title annually, players stay engaged through seasonal updates that bring new content to the game.
Battlefield 2042 Seasonal content
Battlefield 2042 will also follow this pattern, with renowned Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson reporting via DualSHOCKERS that Battlefield 2042’s season pass content will be “The Most Extensive in Series History.”
The claim is that Battlefield 2042 will bring new maps, specialists, updates, weapons, vehicles, and battle pass tiers, with some even for each mode.
This means we could potentially be seeing 3 maps per season for both All Out War and the Portal modes, with one of these maps actually being a remaster, which will be great for those dedicated long-standing fans.
Further, the seasonal content will also see new weapons and vehicles for Portal and All Out War, which means we could see between 12-16 new weapons and vehicles per season.
There is no doubt that players will be pleased to see this consistent supply of new content when each new season arrives for Battlefield 2042 if these reports come to fruition. However, these reports have not been confirmed by EA or Dice as of yet, so they should still be taken with a grain of salt at this time.
That’s all on Battlefield 2042’s seasonal content. For more, stay tuned via Charlie INTEL and check out our article on the specialists in the game.

Apex Legends Disruptor Rounds making a surprise return in Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 entitled “Emergence” will see the return of an infamous hop-up, the Disruptor Rounds.
Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence is right around the corner, and it seems the developers have decided to bring back the popular Disruptor Rounds hop-up from Season 2.
Apex Legends developers finally gave players a deeper look at what to expect from Season 10 Emergence with a new gameplay trailer that showed off the new content.
From a brand new Battle Pass, map changes, and of course a new Legend, Apex Legends are going all out for Season 10, even bringing back an old favorite hop-up.
Apex Legends revealed gameplay for their brand new season on July 26, revealing some interesting new developments on World’s Edge, as well as displaying Seer and his abilities.
With Season 10 set to arrive on August 3, Gamespot was lucky enough to gain early information on updates coming in the patch notes.
As well as some changes to Legends and weapons like the L-Star and EVA-8, it seems the developers also decided to switch up the care package weapons.
Starting from Season 10, players will now be able to find the Prowler on floor loot, being replaced by both the Spitfire and the Alternator.
Apex Legends Disruptor Rounds
However, the most interesting thing about this change is the fact that the Alternator will come equipped with the Apex Legends Disruptor Rounds, the infamous hop-up from Season 2 that was removed in Season 3 due to how strong it was.
Originally the Apex Legends Disruptor Rounds were also available for the RE-45 as well as the Alternator. However, it seems they will only be coming back for the Alternator, which will exclusively be in the care package.
For those unfamiliar with how the Apex Legends Disruptor Rounds actually work, this hop-up gives the Alternator a damage increase to enemy shields, which was around 1.5x more damage back when they were introduced in Season 2.
Although Disruptor Rounds were fairly controversial when they arrived in Apex Legends, due to their powerful nature, now that it will only be available in a care package weapon, perhaps players won’t feel as hard done, especially as not everyone will be able to pick it up.
If you’re excited for Apex Legends Season 10 and want to stay updated on news as it comes out, stay tuned via Charlie INTEL, as we’ll be covering everything.
