The upcoming Fortnite live event will be the longest event of all time. Epic Games recently revealed some important information regarding the "Fracture" event, making players even more excited about it.

The event will begin on Saturday, December 3, at 4 PM Eastern Time. Considering this is less than two weeks away, Epic has added an in-game countdown that shows the exact time of the event. The countdown can be seen in the lobby and will hit zero when the "Fracture" event begins.

According to an official blog post by Epic Games, the next Fortnite live event will last 40 minutes, making it the longest live event ever. Furthermore, players can join the event while it's in progress.

On Tuesday, November 22, Epic Games published a blog post that revealed some interesting details regarding the "Fracture" event. It turns out that the development team has prepared some huge things for December 3.

"Fracture" will be the third chapter-ending event. However, it will be the first live event that players will be able to join while it's in progress. It appears that Epic has found a way to stabilize the game servers and allow everyone to witness live events, which is great news.

The exclusive playlist for the Fortnite live event will be released at 3:30 PM Eastern Time, allowing players to join. At this time, we expect Epic Games to disable other playlists as well.

Here is what Epic posted on its blog:

"The 'Fracture' playlist will open up 30 minutes prior, so you can jump in before the event starts. You can also join in-progress until 4:40 PM ET!"

Joining an event that's already in progress sounds amazing. By doing this, Epic Games will allow players who are late to witness the event live, which is a perfect feature.

The blog post also revealed that the event would support parties of up to four players. Players who play Fortnite through GeForce Now or Xbox Cloud Gaming will also be able to witness the event.

Epic Games has prepared another free reward for Fortnite Battle Royale players. This time, players who log in between Friday, December 2, and Sunday, December 4, will unlock an exclusive emote.

The emote is called Toasty Roast and will only be available during this time. It will be automatically granted to everyone who logs in on Friday at 9 AM Eastern Time.

Furthermore, Epic has revealed that the emote will be obtainable by 2:45 AM on December 4. This could mean Fortnite servers will get back up around 2 AM on Sunday, although this hasn't been confirmed.
