FORTNITE event countdown has begun, with the Fortnite Star Wars live event fast approaching. Ahead of the Rise of Skywalker screening we have details on where the Risky Reels cinema map location is and how to watch a live stream.
Fortnite event day is finally here, with the latest Fortnite live event – the Star Wars Risky Reels cinema screening – kicking off shortly. Following on from last season’s stunning Fortnite The End event, the first Fortnite chapter 2 event will be focused on one of the year’s biggest movies. Today’s Fortnite live event will see an exclusive, never-before-seen scene from Star Wars Rise of Skywalker get showcased in Epic Games’ hit title.
The Fortnite Star Wars event will be taking place at the Risky Reels cinema.
Risky Reels was formerly a named POI on the Battle Royale map, but this has changed with Fortnite chapter 2.
If you’re struggling to find the Fortnite Risky Reels map location then don’t worry, Express.co.uk is here to help.
To find the Fortnite Risky Reels cinema location then you just need to lookout for Frenzy Farm or Pleasant Park on the Battle Royale map.
Risky Reels can be found just west of Frenzy Farm or south east of Pleasant Park.
The Fortnite Star Wars event will be taking place at the Risky Reels drive-in cinema with doors opening prior to the event kicking off.
Doors for the Fortnite Star Wars event open at 1.30pm eastern time, which is 10.30am pacific time and 6.30pm UK time.
The Fortnite Star Wars event will have a start time of 2pm eastern, 11am pacific and 7pm GMT.
Make sure you log into Fortnite prior to the event’s start time so you can get down to Risky Reels and get a spot before it all kicks off.
If, for whatever reason, you are unable to play Fortnite when the Star Wars event is taking place then there will be plenty of people streaming it.
You will be able to watch Fortnite streams on Twitch and Mixer if you wish to tune in that way to the latest Fortnite live event.
Everyone that attends the Fortnite Star Wars event will get a free TIE Whisper Glider.
And it’s rumoured that tonight’s Fortnite Star Wars screening could see a crossover event launched in the aftermath.
It’s rumoured this event will feature new challenges and rewards that are themed around Star Wars.
