How long is The Big Bang Event in Fortnite expected to be? Eminem concert predicted runtime
How long is The Big Bang Event in Fortnite expected to be? Based on past live events, the predicted runtime for the Eminem concert is around 20 minutes. The last major in-game concert (Rift Tour), which featured Ariana Grande, lasted for about 12 minutes. This one should be longer as it's interconnected with a live event.
The Eminem concert is not the only attraction of The Big Bang. As showcased by multiple leakers, players will be able to explore different areas of the map and partake in activities like crafting, racing, and perhaps take on some challenges/quests. As such, the total runtime for The Big Bang live event may last 30 minutes at most.
When will the Fortnite Big Bang Event (Eminem concert) start?
As per the information provided by Epic Games, The Big Bang Event (Eminem concert) will start at 2 pm Eastern Time on December 2. To prepare for this momentous occasion, the servers will be disabled at 1:30 pm Eastern Time.
Players should avoid staying in-game, especially in Save The World mode at this time. Failure to log out could result in losing out on progress and resources. Home Base could also be affected if undertaking Storm Shield Defense missions.
The Big Bang Event (Eminem concert) will be preceded by a waiting time of around 30 minutes. To avoid the last minute waiting-in-queue screen, it's advisable to join as soon as The Big Bang Event (Eminem concert) playlist goes live.
Players will receive The Big Bang Loading Screen for attending The Big Bang Event (Eminem concert). As a bonus, those who own the Marshall Never More Outfit will be able to unlock the Marshall Magma Style. Keep in mind that this is applicable even if you purchase the Outfit after attending the live event.
