While Fortnite Chapter 3 hasn’t been everyone’s cup of tea, the latest era in Fortnite history is beginning to wind down well ahead of schedule. Although Chapters 1 and 2 both ran for two years each, the third act in Fortnite is set to wrap up just 12 months since it got underway.

Epic Games confirmed as much during the 2022 FNCS Invitational on November 13, revealing the upcoming Fracture event to cap off Chapter 3. This finale is set to mark the occasion with a bang, rolling out an all-new Chapter in the process.

So before it kicks off, be sure to brush up on everything there is to know about Fortnite’s Chapter 3 finale event below, including start times and how to watch.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Finale: Fracture event date & time

The Fracture live finale event will take place in Fortnite on Saturday, December 3 at 1AM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT and it’s expected to last around 40 minutes.

Players should aim to be in the lobby at least 30 minutes prior to this if they want to experience the whole event – although Epic has confirmed you’ll be able to join the event while it’s already in progress.

Remember this is a one-time-only event, so you won’t be able to replay it at a later date.

How to watch Fortnite Chapter 3 Finale event

As always, logging into Fortnite yourself and playing the game is the best way to experience the Fracture live event. We’re sure to see a dramatic shift in-game right on time, so hopping into a match and keeping your eyes peeled will serve you well.

However, if you’re unable to access the game at this exact time, you can always tune into the action online through platforms like Twitch or YouTube. All of your favorite Fortnite streamers are sure to be broadcasting the Chapter 3 Finale from their perspective.

What can we expect from the Fortnite Chapter 3 Finale event?

At this point in time, it’s anyone’s guess what the Fracture live event may involve, although we know for certain it’ll advance the ongoing Fortnite storyline and pave the way for Chapter 4.

Epic Games has described the Fracture live event as an “otherworldly and unexpected social event” where “the fate of the Island is in your hands,” so it’s sure to have big consequences for the Island.

Whatever takes place, we can expect Chapter 4 to commence shortly after, following the events of this finale. Rest assured, we’ll keep you posted right here as things get underway.
