Fortnite Live Event Doomsday – 360 degree video created by YouTube.com/3DVR360
Fortnite’s Doomsday event finally took place after an extended wait period due to a variety of factors, and it did not disappoint.
As many expected, the Chapter 2, Season 3 map will likely be underwater. While we haven’t reached that point fully yet (Season 3 isn’t out until June 17), the map made enough changes following the Doomsday event that it’s a safe assumption. The map is currently surrounded by walls of water, with only the center still being playable.
We can likely expect the center part to also become underwater by the time Season 3 actually starts. Something to note about the water is that there are different kinds of fish, and even sharks could be visible at one point. This suggests we can likely see these different fish once Season 3 launches.
As for the current state of Fortnite, if you go into the water walls surrounding the map you will get a swimming animation. The only problem is you can’t stay in there for long — the water acts as the new zone, taking damage as 10 health at a time.
After a series of delays, Fortnite’s next big live event, commonly referred to as the Doomsday event, took place today. It effectively marks the end of the current season--Season 2 of Chapter 2--and will set things up for the start of Season 3 later this week. Officially known as The Device, the live event happened earlier today--we’ve outlined all of the details you need to know below, including how to watch, what happened, and (possibly) why the game went down.
The new season Fortnite is confirmed to start on 17th June 2020. The downtime for the Fortnite update is expected to begin at at 2:00 AM EST / 1:00 AM CT.
Given the importance of the Fortnite season 3 update, the downtime may go on for 2 to 3 hours before players can drop back in the game.
Multiple Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 leaks and speculations have pointed towards the possibility of a new map. However, Tabor Hill, a popular Fortnite content creator, received a tip from an anonymous source stating that the Fortnite map will be submerged underwater initially, new POIS and locations will reveal themselves once the water level drops.
