Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is almost here, and a lot of people are wondering when they can see the live event that kicks off the new season. Fortnite usually always has a flamboyant live event when a season ends, but Epic’s approach to events has changed over the past few seasons. Season 6 started with a single player event called the Zero Crisis Finale, and that season’s story content was spread across the season instead of letting it all happen in a single event. Season 7 will follow a similar pattern, but the event schedule could be a little different this time around. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite Season 7 live event.
When is the Fortnite Season 7 Live Event?
Epic Games has not yet announced a live event for Fortnite Season 7. According to the well-known leaker HYPEX, there will be no live event at the end of the current season, but there could be an introductory event such as the Zero Crisis Finale from March. Epic announced that the Season 7 story trailer will premiere on YouTube on June 8 at 2 p.m. ET, when the season is expected to begin. This is the same way Season 6 began, so it is possible for a Solo Event to be played once the servers are back online after a downtime.
There won’t be a live event this season, but UFOs will appear to set up for Season 7 and then we MAY have an intro event!https://t.co/YdA4V8rL6N

However, it is very unlikely that there will be a huge live event at the start of Season 7. Epic Games always announces events well in advance, and there has been no official announcement for a live finals event or a solo intro event. Several teasers have been released for the new season in the past few days, but it seems like the story trailer is all Fortnite fans will get at the start of the new season.
Since there won’t be a live event at the conclusion of Season 6, that doesn’t mean the Season 7 start won’t be eventful. The story trailer will most likely feature a ton of new locations and items that will be available in Season 7, and Epic Games will undoubtedly continue Fortnite’s latest pattern of mid-season storytelling, which really picked up speed with Season 6, with new weekly quests, which are about talking to NPCs and learning more about the world and the storyline. Fortnite Season 7 begins with the premiere of the story trailer on Tuesday, June 8th at 2 p.m. ET.
Fourteen days is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
