Fortnite's Myths and Mortals is certainly epic in proportion, but it's almost run its course - and now everyone's eyes are on the next Fortnite live event, including when it might be.


There's been plenty of leaks and data-mining to keep us in the loop, however, so what's going on isn't necessarily much of a mystery, but what it leads up to in Chapter 5 Season 3 definitely is.

We've taken a stab at what it could be, but it is definitely in the realm of fantasy, as there is nothing concrete to suggest anything at this moment other than a few rumours and aligning dates.

Whatever it may be, we'll no doubt be getting a slew of content to keep us busy for months to come, with LEGO Fortnite, Psyonix's Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival likely to receive new updates too.

But the next live event is fast approaching, so let's get to it!

When is the next Fortnite live event? Our speculation

The next Fortnite live event will take place on 24th May 2024 to signal the start of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3.

Currently, we are leading up to this with a live event of its own, which began on Tuesday 14th May.

We already know what the current live event features, though, thanks to leakers and data miners.

Earthquakes are returning, and brooding dark clouds are to swirl around the statue atop Mount Olympus, which will in turn raise its sword.

The statue will become charged with lightning and repeatedly strike Pandora's Box, found in the River Styx, until its gem is filled up.

This was revealed by FNAssist on X (formerly Twitter).

Fellow leaker PeQu showed us exactly what this will look like.

As part of the build-up for Season 3, a sandstorm will be approaching the island, as revealed by PeQu.

You can also check out how it plays out courtesy of Grxnt on YouTube.

But what could this all be leading up to? Grab your fistfuls of salt, as it is time for some speculation of our own...

Mad Max: Furiosa is set to release in cinemas on 24th May, which coincides with the launch of Chapter 5 Season 3.

Given Fortnite's penchant for crossovers, it wouldn't be surprising if there were to be some sort of Mad Max-themed event.

Seeing as the movies take place in a post-apocalyptic Australia, which is ravaged by - you guessed it - sandstorms, this doesn't seem entirely out of the question.

The sandstorm could blanket the island, revealing a Mad Max makeover, complete with crazy cars and recognisable characters.

This could be completely reaching, but again, Epic Games does love a crossover.

When was the last Fortnite live event?

The last Fortnite Live Event was Pandora's Box being opened, which ushered in the start of Chapter 5 Season 2: Myths and Mortals.

It began at 10pm GMT on 8th March, after being delayed for a few hours, and has run ever since.

Before Pandora's Box opened, players had to contend with lethal earthquakes that were tearing the landscape apart.

How to join a Fortnite live event

To experience the next Fortnite live event, it's best to join a game of Battle Royale before the event is due to begin to experience it in its entirety.

In preparation for events, Epic often take down Fortnite experiences (creator mode) until the event's conclusion as they begin to work on implementing the update.

We suspect that it will play out much the same way for the next live event, though we'd recommend logging on at least a couple of hours early if you are serious about attending it.

As the most popular game in the world, Fortnite commonly receives huge queues as players attempt to sign on to Epic's servers. And we wouldn't want anyone to miss out.
