Fortnite’s giant pink mech returns for its next live event


We are approaching the end of Fortnite‘s final season, and developer Epic is teasing the game’s next live event that will bring it to a close. It’s called “Collision” and it kicks off June 4 at 4 p.m. ET; as with previous live events, it will be an experience to be there or miss. Epic says players can queue up for the event 30 minutes before it starts.

What will actually happen is still a bit of a mystery, but it will clearly relate to the giant pink mech that old players will remember from 2019. Leading up to the event, the mech can be seen in the game’s lobby screen, while a giant tower has been built in the center of the map. In addition to experiencing the chaos live, players in attendance will also receive an exclusive in-game loading screen and music track.

FortniteThe game’s live events have become one of the game’s hallmarks and often signify a major change for the Battle Royale Island. Past events include an alien invasion, the island turning itself over and even a battle with a towering Galactus. In 2019, the entire island was sucked into a black hole and the game was then flat for days.

The game’s current war season kicked off in March and is most notable for the introduction of the game’s now permanent Zero Build mode. As always, it was also packed with pop culture collaborations, including Coachella, Wu-Tang Clan, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
