It’s been a long road for Fortnite Chapter 2, but things are finally coming to a close. And soon. The timing for the chapter’s long-awaited finale is upon us, bringing with it the end of the Cube Queen and her wicked machinations. Just like most other chapter events, The End is one-and-done. After you play it, it’ll go into the vaults of time, ne’er to be seen ‘gain. Or a less archaic way of saying that. So grab your favorite guns, a lawn chair, and a bucket of digital popcorn to prepare to get the last act of a desperate cube underway.
The End will begin on December 4 at 4 PM ET, which is only about a week and a half away. It marks the last stand of whatever Fortnite players call themselves against the Cube Queen. Fortnite Fighters? Busfolk? The Convergence has been seen through and the Cube Queen is delivering what she assumes to be the final blow. It’s up to you and the 15 others in your party to bring the fight to the Sideways. The playlist can be queued up for half an hour prior to its start, so you have plenty of time to prepare. Also, make sure to edit your settings if you need to before starting the event. Once it starts, it’ll be too late.
Begin The End in Chapter 2 of Fortnite
The season will be ending a day earlier, so any players who log in before it finalizes will get 225,000 XP for their trouble. Taking part in The End will also net players a special wrap and loading screen. Don’t forget to take care of any of the season’s loose ends, so make sure to hit all of your unfinished quests and grab any outstanding rewards before they vanish into the ether as soon as the finale comes to pass. Bars will also become null and void, so make sure to spend them before they go poof, which shouldn’t be too hard, as there will be a special sale shortly, which will reduce prices for character services and exotic trade items.
From November 26 to November 29, there’ll also be a power leveling weekend, so get grinding if you’d like. And remember, Chapter 3 could be starting sooner than you’d think.
