Fortnite Live Event: When is the fortnite season 7 event

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We had a solo playable Fortnite event last season, but will there be a Fortnite live event for chapter 2 season 7?

We’ve seen players being abducted as Fortnite chapter 2 season 6 draws to a close along with the release of new Foreshadowing quests, UFO posters scattered around the map, and crop circles at the Colossal Crops fields. Fortnite season 7 is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, June 8th 2021 and we’ve had two teasers so far.

We already know the new season of Fortnite will be alien-themed, and the two teasers have confirmed that. The image on the right of the two teasers are alien-tech weapons that we’ll be able to use in the new season.

The image on the left of the two season 7 teaser images look like they’ll be a back bling in the new battle pass. The item in the middle of the teasers seems like it could be a hint towards a skin, at least the teaser 2 image does.

The teaser 2 image is a pair of glasses that suggests we’ll be getting a Superman skin. Donald Mustard, the chief creative office at Epic also quote tweeted the teaser two video with “look up”, which all but confirms a Superman skin.

If that’s the case, Fortnite season 7 will get off to a great start. However, players want to know if there will be a Fortnite live event for Fortnite chapter 2 season 7. It appears a rumor is going around on Twitter that there will be a live event for Fortnite season 7, so players are now wondering when the Fortnite season 7 live event will be.

However, a live event, even in a new season of Fortnite, would have been announced by Epic Games by now if there was to be a Fortnite season 7 live event. Before the launch of season 6, Epic Games release a blog post announcing the zero crisis solo event.

There’s been no announcement for a Fortnite season 7 live event, so it doesn’t look like there will be one. It also looks like there won’t be any event at all with the launch of the new season, but there’s always a chance we could get a live event to conclude the season. If anything changes regarding an upcoming Fortnite event, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Who is Mari in Fortnite? What’s the Fortnite Discord community challenge and more.

We’re just two days away from Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 and things are finally starting to heat up. We’ve had players being abducted by aliens for a few days now, and we’ve also had two teaser images for the new season.

The first two teasers all but confirm we’ll be getting an alien-themed season for Fortnite season 7. They also seem to showcase what could either be back bling that’ll be in the season 7 battle pass, or weapon charms.

The second teaser image along with a tweet from Donald Mustard all but confirms we’ll be getting a Superman skin next season. We’ve also seen a preview of two of the alien weapons we’ll get to use in a couple of days time.

Epic Games have also posted a video on Twitter with different sounds. When putting this through a spectogram, it reveals some text that could point towards a Star Trek x Fortnite collaboration for season 7.

The video also has a link to the official Fortnite Discord Twitter account. The caption in the tweet mentions a Fortnite character, Mari. Ring a bell. Mari is the Fortnite character that you can hear in the Foreshadowing quest tapes. She mentions she’s seen aliens and is taking questions on what seems like her own small radio show.

Near the end of the voice clips, a “question” is left by Dr. Slone from the IO. He tells her to seize all communications with and discussions of alien matters immediately. It seems like the Fortnite Mari character then gets kidnapped by the IO and gives a warning asking her listeners to keep watching the stars.

In the Fortnite Discord channel, Mari needs your help. There’s some Mari Fortnite challenges that you need to complete as a community. Once one person figures out the answer, everyone will progress one step further. So far, a mp3 audio clip has been posted, when the code is cracked, the answer can be submitted.

Once the above is completed, players were then tasks to figure out the puzzle found below:

Players are still trying to figure out the above puzzle, but we’ll update this as soon as we progress through the next step in the Hot Saucer Mari Fortnite season 7 teaser event.

It’ll likely conclude with another teaser of some sort for Fortnite season 7, but we’ll need to wait to see what exactly it is.

Fortnite x Star Trek Season 7 Collaboration Teased

Reading Time: 3 minutes

It looks like we could be getting a Star Trek x Fortnite collaboration in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

When Epic Games announced their very first Fortnite collaboration way back in chapter 1 players were excited. At the time, you didn’t really see movies collaborate with games. The first collaboration was Fortnite x Marvel with an LTM.

Since that first collaboration, Epic Games have been creating a Meta-verse. Fortnite have had collaborations with Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and a number of artists including Travis Scott and Marshmello. We’ve also seen sports collaborations with NFL followed by the recent NBA collaboration.

Recent documents revealed by Epic Games in the Apple vs Epic Games lawsuit shows just how much money these collaborations make, so expect to see many more in the seasons to come. However, at this point players are getting fed up of all these collabs.

Fortnite chapter 2 season 4 was one huge collaboration. The battle pass, map changes and even the story line were one big advertisement for Marvel. Even the live event was part of the collaboration and in my opinion, it was one of the worst live events we’ve had.

However, it looks like we’ll be getting even more collaborations in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7. The second teaser for season 7 included a pair of glasses. The caption along with the glasses hinted towards a Superman skin next season, likely in the battle pass, and a tweet from Donald Mustard all but confirmed it.

Now, Epic Games have been posting more teasers in their Discord channel, and it hints towards a Star Trek x Fortnite collaboration. Epic tweeted out a video with a bunch of different sounds. If you put it into a spectrogram, it translates to the following text, “”UNIVERSAL TRANSLATION MALFUNCTION” FALLBACK AUDIO-DELTA ENCODING WITH 1-HIGH, 0-LOW”.

Apparently this is something that’s related to Sci-Fi and Star Trek. Star Trek is an American science media franchise which fits into the Sci-Fi season we look to be heading towards. Now, if this “universal translation malfunction” is something common in most Sci-fi movies and programs, why are people suggesting it’s a Star Trek collaboration?

Donald Mustard, the chief creative officer at Epic Games, quote tweeted a clip of his video call at The Game Awards stating there are clues hidden in the background of his work from home space. If we look at the background, we can see a G.I. Joe action figure. As we know a G.I. Joe x Fortnite collaboration has already happened.

There’s also a posted on the wall for Star Trek into the darkness. It’s more than likely this is one of the clues Donald Mustard was referring to, so it seems extremely plausable we’ll be getting a Star Trek x Fortnite collaboration in season 7. An alien-themed season is the perfect time for a Fortnite Star Trek collaboration.

Obviously we don’t know what the collaboration will entail, but we’re guessing some Star Trek Fortnite skins that’ll be in the shop or maybe even in the Battle Pass. Heck, we might even get some Star Trek Fortnite NPCs in the new season.

Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 teaser 2 – Glasses, New Alien Shotgun weapon & Guitar

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 teaser image 2 has been revealed. We could be getting a new alien shotgun Fortnite weapon in the new season.

We’re just two days away from the launch of Fortnite chapter 2 season 7. Leaks suggest the gameplay in the new season will change drastically, but no other information from those that have inside information have been revealed.

What we do know is it’ll be alien-themed. Since the v16.50 update, the final major update of the season, we’ve seen UFO related posters and signs scattered around the map. This week, players have been getting abducted by aliens which spawns them at a random location on the map with full health and shield.

Players have been posting the billboard advertisements Epic have been posting around the world. The first teaser image for Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 was revealed yesterday on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you missed the first teaser, you can take a look at the image below.

The caption posted on each social media platform was different. Each caption provided a hint at what these items in the teaser image are. For a breakdown on the first teaser image and their captions, check out our dedicated article here.

We always get more than one teaser image or video for a new season, but the symbols placed in the bottom right corner of the teaser suggests that there’s a total of three teasers before the release of season 7.

Epic Games have now posted the second teaser image which you can take a look at below along with the different captions.

Here’s a look at the Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 teaser image 2:

Here are the different captions from Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Twitter: “When placed onto the face this strange plastic device seemed to make us appear as unrecognizable.”

Instagram: “Results for device with hole in center: -Taste – Unsatisfactory -Possible weapon usage – subpar -Noise when metallic strings are struck – Pleasant”.

Facebook: “Final designs of proximity deterrent device now rendering. Lab results show positive effect on target movement and trajectory. Test subjects to be acquired soon for further analysis.”

Based on the above captions, it looks like the glasses could be an item that changes the appearance of a player. The other two weapons/items including the guitar seem a little more difficult, however, the item on the right could be some kind of alien Fortnite shotgun weapon. Let us know your theories on the items in the season 7 teaser 2 image in the comments section below.

Superman Fortnite Skin: Season 7 Battle Pass Superman Skin Teased?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

The new Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 teaser has got fans predicting a Superman Fortnite skin.

As you’ll already know by now, Fortnite season 7 is just two days away with the new season set to launch next week on Tuesday, 8th June. There’s no information regarding downtime for the new season yet, but we should get that information some time tomorrow.

The lead up to a new season of Fortnite is always the same. We either get a live in-game event, or we get mini events leading up to the season. We’ve had a cube rolling around the map, an island making it’s way around the map, and this season, we have players being abducted by aliens and spawning them in a random location with full health and shield.

A few days before a new season, we get teaser images or videos. In previous seasons, these teaser images provide hints at what to expect in the Battle Pass or new features being added like a snow board or zip lines. The lead up the season 7 is no different and we already have two teaser images with the final one expected to be posted on social media either at 10 AM ET (3 PM BST) or 3 PM ET (8 PM BST).

There seems to be a pattern in the two teaser images so far. The left image is likely a back bling that’ll be in the Battle Pass, the middle image is either a a consumable/item we’ll see in the new season or a hint for a Battle Pass skin, and the image on the right is an alien weapon.

Above is the first teaser. The left image and the caption seem to suggest it’ll be a back bling, the caption for the milk is a little confusing, and the caption on for the right all but confirms it’s an alien weapon we’ll get to use in the new season.

The latest teaser, teaser 2, shows an alien weapon on the right and what’s likely to be a back bling on the left. The middle item again could either be an item that’ll be found in-game, or a hint at a Fortnite season 7 Battle Pass skin. Players have been posting a theory that the glasses could hint towards a Fortnite superman skin.

Fortnite Superman Skin Season 7 Battle Pass

We’ve already seen Epic Games add in collaboration Fortnite skins in the Battle Pass. The entire season 4 Battle Pass was Marvel-themed, we have a DC skin and a Lara Croft collaboration skin for this season, so who’s to say we won’t get more cosmetics in the Fortnite season 7 battle pass that’s also a collaboration?

It’s pretty much nailed on that Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 is alien-themed based on the UFOs abducting players, and the teaser images clearly showing alien weapons. Superman AKA Clark Kent is an alien from Krypton and he makes use of glasses to become unrecognizable. The caption for the glasses in the Fortnite season 7 teaser is “When placed onto the face this strange plastic device seemed to make us appear as unrecognizable“.

It seems to line up perfectly for Epic Games to drop a Superman Fortnite skin in the season 7 battle pass to line up with the alien-theme we’re getting next week. However, it could just be some sort of item that works like phone booths, but at this point it’s impossible to rule out another DC x Fortnite collaboration with the release of a Superman Fortnite skin.

Update: This tweet from the chief creative officer at Epic Games, Donald Mustard, all but confirms we’ll be getting a Fortnite Superman skin in season 7:
