Top 8 things we would love to see at Fortnite World Cup

Published

on

Epic Games is notorious for throwing lavish Fortnite-themed parties and events. The Fortnite World Cup is quickly approaching, and we have some ideas on different rides and competitions that might be featured at the $30 million tournament.

Fans who are lucky enough to attend Fortnite events are able to enjoy tons of different attractions, events, and competitions.

On July 27 and July 28, the Fortnite World Cup will be held in New York. The Fortnite event will offer a record-breaking $30 million prize pool for competitors.

Even though there will be an intense tournament for qualifying athletes, thousands of fans are expected to attend the event.

Epic Games has offered tons of awesome attractions for fans to enjoy at previous events, like the Glider zip-line at E3 2019 and mini golf at TwitchCon 2018.

We have a few ideas on what surprises Epic Games have in store for attendees of the Fortnite World Cup.

Hot air balloon

Balloons were originally added into Fortnite with patch v6.21 and allowed players to safely float high in the sky or gain the height advantage on an enemy.

They were eventually vaulted with Season 9’s v9.00 patch, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over.

It would be neat to have a huge hot air balloon ride that will fly up and allow fans to get an eagle-eyed view of the Fortnite World Cup venue. Those pictures would certainly look awesome across social media!

VR in-game experience

There have been some locations within Fortnite that have remained popular throughout each season, like Pleasant Park or Haunted Hills.

Fortnite’s most popular locations could be featured in an exclusive VR in-game experience where players can get a up close and personal look into the game.

Epic Games has access to different video game technologies than other companies, so this idea could not be too far off.

Fortnite cosplay

Cosplay is the act of dressing up and designing a costume based off a fictional character.

At previous events, Epic has had Fortnite-themed characters walking around and taking pictures with young fans.

We would be surprised if the company didn’t have Fortnite characters at the World Cup. Who doesn’t want a picture with the Durr Burger mascot?

Fortnite-themed rides

If you haven’t noticed, Fortnite events are usually full of different rides and attractions based around the game.

There have been different forms of vehicles in Fortnite ranging from Ballers to Quadcrashers.

It would be super cool to have a little soccer field set up to offer Baller soccer where fans suit up into inflatable suits or a Quadcrasher bumper car arena.

Influencer meet & greet

Part of the reason Fortnite exploded into popularity was because of the different personalities and influencers that take part in the community.

We expect Fortnite personalities like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Aydan, and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney to be walking around the venue to take pictures with fans.

Epic also has previously held meet and greets so fans can get a bit of one on one time with there favorite influencers, and we expect them to hold more at the Fortnite World Cup

Music performances

Pleasant Park was temporarily transformed into a concert venue for the DJ Marshmello.

His set featured his most popular songs and included different in-game mechanics like tossing the entire lobby into the air during a bass drop.

It would certainly be a great way to pay respect to Fortnite’s biggest concert if Epic was to recreate the concert in a makeshift Pleasant Park.

Exclusive skins for attendees

Previous Fortnite events have had their own special item that could be redeemed for exclusive in-game items like sprays.

With the Fortnite World Cup being a record-breaking event, offering attendees an exclusive skin designed around the event would be a great way to say thanks to fans.

Fortnite themed food/vendors

IMG: Epic Games

Durr Burger and Pizza Pit are two food locations within Fortnite that we would certainly enjoy to see in real life.

Epic Games have previously offered Slurp Juice-themed drinks, so Fortnite-themed food certainly isn’t an unrealistic expectation.

If you are attending the Fortnite World Cup from July 27 to July 28, be sure to post your pictures on social media to share with everybody.

We are excited for the $30 million event and can’t wait to see who walks away the winners of the solo and duo tournaments.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
