What We Know About the Fortnite ‘Butterfly’ Event So Far

-

Epic had announced that there would be a one-time only event, taking place in Fortnite on November 4th 2018 at 1pm ET (6pm UTC). You can see when the event will occur in your timezone at the end of the article. This will be the end of the Fortnitemares event, so make sure you finish the Fortnitemare Challenges by then to unlock the Dark Engine Glider. Data-miners have been looking at the files and have established that this event is called the ‘Butterfly’ Event. Here are the Butterfly images that have been found by  @FortTory:Butterfly Fortnite Fortnite Butterfly Background

This is a one-time only event, so you will need to get into a match to see what happens. Some players have been asking if they will be able to witness the event in the Playground LTM. It has been confirmed by Epic employees that you will not be able to see the event in the Playground LTM, so there is a risk that other players could kill you when the event is happening.

According to PlayStation, the event will last five minutes, as you can see below:

We know that the event will change the map, specifically the Lake, as this has been leaked by data-miners previously.

It’s interesting to see how far this story has progessed, seeing as it had started from the meteor that crashed into Dusty Depot (Dusty Divot). Here are all the timezones for the ‘Butterfly’ event below:
