Fortnite - The Device Live Event (Gameplay)

Fortnite is back at it again, showcasing a brand new live event as the grand finale to Chapter 2 Season 2. Here's the entire event as it played out, captured on PC.

After weeks of teases (and a couple of delays), Fortnite's Doomsday live event took place on June 15, setting the stage for the game's next season. If you were one of the many players not able to watch the event live due to capacity issues, however, don't worry; you can watch a full replay of it in the video above.

In true Fortnite fashion, The Device event led to some seismic changes to the game world. Shortly after the clock struck 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT, huge rods began to emerge from the water around The Agency before the device itself--a huge orb--rose out of the spy headquarters and above the map. The orb triggered a violent storm, which temporarily distorted reality and, ultimately, caused a massive tidal wave to surround the island.

The Agency was almost completely destroyed as the event transpired, leaving behind ruins in the center of the map. The tidal wave, meanwhile, has effectively replaced the storm circle, closing in on the island as matches progress and damaging any player caught in it. This all but confirms the rumors that Season 3 of the game will have a water theme.

Season 3 is set to begin on Wednesday, June 17, making this your last chance to complete any challenges you may have missed from this season. If you need some help cleaning up any remaining missions, you can find all of our maps and guides in our Fortnite Season 2 challenges roundup.
