What is the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 countdown for?

Epic Games have confirmed that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 countdown timer is leading towards a huge live event known as Collision – an interactive experience that also acts as the season finale.

After weeks of battles at various locations around the map, it looks like the war between the Imagined Order and The Seven’s Resistance force will be coming to an explosive end during this live event.

Players will be able to join the event playlist with their squad 30 minutes before the event begins, but as always, it’s recommended that you log in to the game at least an hour before to make sure you get in.
