Here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 Fortnite New Year’s event.
It’s been a few weeks since Epic Games released Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground which included a number of new game modes.
The new chapter introduced a brand new Fortnite map and some movement changes, some of which have been altered since release based on player feedback.
Overall, the new chapter has gone down well with the player base largely thanks to the three new game modes including LEGO Fortnite.
However, with LEGO Fortnite launching with limited content, the player count of the mode has gone from over 2 million to roughly 250,000 concurrent players.
It’s likely Epic Games has a lot planned for the LEGO Fortnite mode and Fortnite in general including the return of the OG Fortnite map, although there’s no timescale as to when Epic will rerelease the map.
Players can still log in to Fortnite and claim their free cosmetic rewards from the quest tab. The two free skins are already available to collect along with other cosmetic items including wraps, emotes, gliders, contrails, and more.
With the new year, Epic Games like to release a small Fortnite New Year’s event in Fortnite Battle Royale, and this year is no different.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 Fortnite New Year’s event including the time it’ll take place within the game.
Fortnite New Years Event 2024 Start Time
The Fortnite New Years 2024 event has already started in-game. Like previous years, the New Year’s Fortnite event begins when it hits 2024 in Australia.
The mini New Year’s Fortnite event takes place every hour, forcing players to put away their items and dance until the event concludes.
That means if you haven’t been able to witness the Fortnite New Year’s 2024 event yet, you should be able to at the start of every hour until January 2nd, 2024.
A rift appears in the sky just after the visible countdown concludes with a disco ball appearing before you’re forced to dance. It’s important to remember this when engaging in a fight when it hits a new hour.
There’ll also be fireworks that’ll show “2024” before quickly disappearing.
Here’s what the event looks like in-game:
