Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Event Coming To Fortnite’s Risky Reels
Epic Games have already teased us with Star Wars special, Stormtrooper skin. During that time, people also sighted an Imperial ship far out in the sky. Now, there is a whole event coming just for the new George Lucas film. In fact, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” is coming soon on Fortnite’s location, Risky Reels!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Event in Risky Reels
The news comes from a press release by Epic Games. On December 14, 2019, at 2 p.m ET the Risky Reels cinema in Fortnite will show special footage of the new Star Wars film. As per the release, J. J. Abrams will be releasing this never-before-seen footage from “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker“. In the end, Epic reminds us to log in to Fortnite at least 30 minutes early to avoid getting locked out.
The 2 p.m time can translate to 7 p.m. GMT for standard purposes. This means that those who want to enjoy the event should log in and be inside one of the matches before 6:30 p.m (18:30) GMT.
Where Is The Location?
To those who are new to this, Risky Reels is an OG location of the game. Liked by many for a lot of reasons, it is one of those locations that are very dear to Fortniters. In the final seasons of Fortnite Chapter 1, the location was removed and replaced by others. Now, in Chapter 2, it has returned as a landmark rather than a named location, which works for us as well. It is situated at the North of center island landmark, on the river’s right side.
It is likely that this Fortnite mini-event will happen the same way as the Marshmello concert held at a Pleasant Park. The concert featured an actual Marshmello skin-character running the concert. In the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker event, it is highly likely that J. J Abrams will appear as a character just like this concert event.
With only four days left for the concert, we shall see what is in store for us!
Update: Read about how the event actually was here.
