Fortnite OG is coming to a close soon, and players are disappointed this classic experience is the shortest season in Fortnite’s history.

When Is The Fortnite Big Bang Event In Australia?

The Big Bang Event is scheduled to happen on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at 6 am AEDT. Two hours prior, at 4 am AEDT, Epic-made experiences will begin to be temporarily removed. These modes will return as soon as the once-in-a-lifetime Big Bang Event is over and the new Chapter begins. However, Creator-Made experiences will continue to be available until the downtime and expected update after the event.

You’ll be allowed to join the event’s server 30 minutes before 6 am AEDT, which is recommended. This allows time for players to join early, making sure they have a spot for the event. Much like past Fortnite events, you can party up with a squad of friends to experience it together. However, you don’t need to be a full squad, but four players is the maximum. As you join in this event, solo or not, each player that joins for the experience will also acquire a free Big Bang Loading Screen, which you can see below.

Going along with the current theme of Fortnite OG, The Big Bang event seems to resemble the viral Black Hole Event that happened in 2019. This previous event caused Fortnite to disappear for some time before reappearing with a brand-new map, experiences, and loot pool for players to enjoy. This is expected to happen after this event, as there is a scheduled downtime as Fortnite OG closes.
