On Saturday, July 20, the Fortnite Battle Royale world will be greeted with yet another in-game event when the Polar Peak monster will fight off against the Pressure Plant robot.
At the end of every Battle Royale season, there is typically an in-game event that introduces new additions and upgrades to Fortnite.
Season 8’s unvaulting event temporarily destroyed Retail Row and Tilted Towers while the community voted to unvault the Drum Gun.
On July 17, FortniteMaster leaked the event description for the upcoming event which is rumored to include the Polar Peak monster battling against the robot constructed inside Pressure Plant.
According to FortniteMaster, the event will be titled “Final Showdown”.

The event description leads us to believe that players will need to find high ground in order to view the massive fight between the two beasts.
In previous events, players would set up their own safe zones in order to avoid being eliminated early and missing the event. Epic has since created elimination-free lobbies to allow all players to view and enjoy the new reveals.
The post also included a loading screen which features Bunker Jonesy pointing to an illustration of a human-like figure fighting with a monster, giving more proof that the event will feature a huge battle.
Players should be ready to hop into a Battle Royale match on July 20th at around 2 pm ET in order to enjoy the latest in-game Fortnite event.
Do you think the massive battle will happen, or is Epic baiting us? Let us know your theories in the comments!
