Every year, Fortnite hosts a cluster of events for its players. While some of these events cater to the game’s complex storyline, others are a celebration of real time festivals.

Players around the world have already witnessed Fortnitemares and Winterfest in 2020; naturally, Epic Games would love to end the year with an equally exciting New Year’s event.

Fortnite News, in a recent tweet, shared the visuals of the celebration in the upcoming event. Apparently, a huge rift will open up and a plethora of fireworks will occupy the sky while the Fortnite community welcomes 2021.

With the likes of “The Devourer of Worlds”, “The Device”, Epic Games has significantly enhanced the quality of its events this year. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the developers end the year with a colossal New Year’s event too.

To compensate players from around the world, last year’s event took place every hour until it was New Year in every time zone.

 

Players have contrasting opinions on the upcoming event

A lot of players seem satisfied with a rather lucid event for the New Year’s eve 2021; however, another faction of fans expect the developers to put up a better event this year.

With innovative events like Party Royale, Fortnite has certainly served this purpose. The developers also collaborated with face to face social network Houseparty, owing to which players can connect with each other while playing games.
