Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture Event Leaks and Start Time

Fortnite’s having an early end to its third Chapter, closing up after just four seasons. We got confirmation of the Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture event at the end of the FNCS 2022 Invitational. This is going to be an end-of-season event, a big cinematic finale for players to join in with. It’s the first in quite a few seasons for Fortnite.

Season ends on December 3rd and the countdown is active in-game, while Epic has started teasing what’s coming next. While Chapter 3 has been possibly Fortnite’s best so far, everyone’s excited for what’s coming next.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture Event Start Time

Epic has started to release official details of the upcoming Fracture event, including some official art. We have a solid start time and information on how you can join in on the in-game finale. These events are always highlights for Fortnite with the end of Chapter events being absolutely huge. The last Chapter’s finish saw the entire map get flipped over after a run-in with the Rock. You can never predict what’s coming next in these experiences.

The Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture event is going to start at 4 PM ET on December 3rd. In other time zones, that works out like this:

  • 4 PM EST
  • 1 PM PT
  • 9 PM GMT
  • 10 PM CET

You can join in on the event at these times, but you should probably show up a bit ahead of time. Players can join the event lobby 30 minutes before the event begins. While there’s plenty of capacity, these events are always full close to the start date. It’s a good idea to join the lobby as early as possible, or you might end up locked out. Alternatively, you can just watch the best Fortnite streamers do their showcase and you can jump in after the big crowd subsides.

What to Expect from the Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture Event

So far, Epic has given a bit of information about what’s coming with the Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture event. They’ve described it as an “otherworldly and unexpected social experience” which doesn’t give us much information for the content of the event, but it sounds promising for the end of the season They’ve also released some key art which shows the Chrome that’s been infecting the island taking over entirely! It looks like the Chrome tornados that have been around on the Chapter 3 map might be playing a role in this event.

One fun feature of the new event is that Epic is giving payers a free cosmetic. Everyone who logins in between December 2nd and the event will be able to claim a free emote. This is an emote where players roast a marshmallow! It isn’t quite a free skin like the Chrome Punk that’s currently being given away, but free cosmetics are always a plus.

Fracture Leaks

Most players are happy waiting to be surprised with the upcoming Fortnite Chapter 4 Fracture event. However, if you really want to see what’s coming next, there’s been a substantial leak. This is what’s been leaked of the early part of the event, at least the transition into the event from the lobby.

The Fracture event is going to close up Chapter 3 of Fortnite. This Chapter is much shorter than the last two, but one of the most impactful for the game. This Chapter introduced Zero Builds, a game mode that has propelled Fortnite back to the height of popularity and brought a lot of lapsed players back. Fortnite is on a hot streak right now, we’ll have to see where Chapter 4 of the game is going to take it.
