A Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 live event countdown timer has appeared on the map.
We’re almost into week 8 in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7. We’ve only had two major updates this season and the last update, v17.20, didn’t have any new content. However, Epic Games announced a new update for today, v17.21.
As of writing, the servers are currently down for maintenance. Prior to downtime starting, there was a countdown that appeared in-game for console players. During downtime, data-miners have leaked some files for an upcoming season 7 live event.
Data-miners have also leaked that the countdown will be in the Fortnite lobby along with some leaks regarding what will happen to the mothership during the event. Here’s everything we know so far.
