Epic Games’ Senior PR representative for Fortnite Battle Royale, Nick Chester, has took to Twitter to announce the time of a huge in-game Fortnite event.
This is the second event to be announced prior to its in-game occurrence – the one beforehand being the Season 4 missile launch, which struck a large hole in the sky and set the stone for a rift-themed Season 5; “Worlds Collide”.
Chester announced the time of another upcoming similar in-game event, stating that “You do not want to miss this Fortnite one-time event”.
“Trust me when I say: you do not want to miss this Fortnite one-time event. 1PM ET this Sunday. Be in game.”
He quoted a tweet from the official Fortnite page, which also teased the time for the event – starting at 1pm ET / 6pm UTC (although this may be a mistake seen as though it should be 5pm UTC).
Fortnitemares in Battle Royale ends on Sunday, November 4 at 1pm ET/ 6pm UTC. Finish your Fortnitemares Challenges by then to unlock the Dark Engine Glider. Login early and be in-match to witness the one-time event which starts at 1pm ET/ 6pm UTC. pic.twitter.com/6lBVC4REyS

The event will happen at the exact time the Fortnitemares event ends, so buckle up for something related to Kevin the Cube, or even more. The last in-game event that was announced ended up leaving a huge mark that would last a season.
We have yet to see a satisfying conclusion to the entire plot of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode, which has included a missile launch, a rift in the sky, a cube forming and roaming the map, then the cube tearing the ground up into a floating island and then roaming around the map again – sucking the power up from the runes the Cube left.
The Cube’s current state is beaming a laser into the sky to open a portal, which has summoned monsters upon the map – dubbed “Cube Monsters”. Most are expecting the Cube to now explode, or similar.
