The Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event is out, so to prepare you for it, we’ve made a hub article about everything you need to know about the Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event.

Have you finished your Fortnite challenges for this week? If not, you should do it soon, because the season is nearing its end, and you’ll want to get as much XP as you can before then.

As always with Fortnite and the end of a season, we’ll get an in-game event that all of us are looking forward to. It’s called the Sky Fire event, so let’s get into the details of what it’s all about, when it is and how you can join it.


When Does The Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event Start?

The Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event was out on September 12th, 4PM ET (1PM PT, 10PM CEST). As always, it’s good if you start up Fortnite a little earlier than that, just so you’re prepared for when the event actually starts – just how much earlier you can read below. Don’t want to miss out on the action, right? Usually, events stick around until Season 8 commences but if you missed it check out  this gameplay VoD: 

So it appears you are sneaking around the Alien Mothership and stealing a giant cube-shaped object! This must have something to do with Fortnite Season 8!

How To Join The Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event?

As we mentioned before, Operation Sky Fire is an in-game event, so you will have to launch Fortnite and then join the event playlist. We already mentioned the start date above and that you’ll want to be there early. You can log into the event 30 minutes before it actually starts, so we mean it: be ready. If the event is still active, it will appear in your playlist until Epic removes it.

The theme of this event was obviously aliens, which you’d already known if you even played as much as one match this season. Epic didn’t say much about the event beforehand, but they did post this on their official website, so if you don't mind spoilers, then be sure to read their blog post.

Will you be playing the Fortnite Operation Sky Fire Live Event? If you will, but don’t want to do it alone, join our Discord server and play it with new friends.
