Now Playing: 6 Big Changes In Fortnite Season 3's Splashdown

There's no word on how long the event will last, but it marks the first of its kind since the start of Chapter 2, Season 3 last week. With it taking place in Party Royale, you can expect weapons to be disabled to let you take part in the event without having to worry about another player eliminating you. Meanwhile, another entertainment-centric event has been announced, as Fortnite will broadcast Christopher Nolan movies, including Inception and Batman Begins, depending on your region.

The last big event in Fortnite was the season-ending Doomsday event, known as The Device. That proved to be so popular that many players were unable to get in-game to watch it for themselves, forcing them to watch streams on places like Twitch.

Fortnite has held smaller-scale musical events in the past; the Travis Scott one stands as the exception, featuring an impressive set of custom visuals, in-game happenings, and challenges.
