The Doomsday Device could be hours away from changing Fortnite forever.

Epic Games has confirmed that the action will kick off at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 8PM CEST / 4AM AEST on Monday, June 15. You’ll want to be in-game ahead of time, however, as “space is limited.”

Given just how popular Fortnite’s events have become - with over 12 million tuning in for the most recent spectacle - the servers certainly take a hit each time around. “Arrive 30 minutes early to help secure your spot,” the developers have advised.

What to expect from The Device event

Try to stick close to The Agency as the Doomsday Device could emerge here.

No specific location has been outlined just yet, though players will likely want to hang around The Agency. 

Earlier leaks have revealed what might become of this POI as a result of the Doomsday Device. While the entire map could change, it’s looking as though The Agency will take the biggest hit.

There’s no telling just how long this particular event may last, though it could be over in a flash with long-lasting ramifications.

Additional leaks have shown the Battle Bus flying over a flooded locale, most likely hinting at a disastrous event completely changing the state of the map.

The Device could see players swimming underwater as disaster strikes and floods huge chunks of the battle royale island. Hatches that have popped up around The Agency could also come into play here.
