Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 has been a pretty well liked season of Fortnite, especially in Chapter 2, but all good things must come to an end, and Season 7 of Fortnite is ending very soon indeed.


Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 End Date & Time

Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 will end on September 12th, 2021 following the conclusion of the Operation: Sky Fire event at 4PM ET / 3PM CT / 1PM PT / 9PM BST, with the game going into immediate downtime following the event, making the game unplayable and essentially ending the season.

In total, Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 lasted for 96 days, which actually makes it one of the shorter seasons in Chapter 2. Season 1, for reference, lasted 128 days. While most Chapter 1 seasons lasted between 60 and 80 days, Chapter 2 seasons have gone on for far longer with overtime.


Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 Story So Far

The story for Chapter 2 – Season 7 hasn’t exactly been complicated: us vs aliens.

Following the Zero Point acting up in previous chapters, its power attracted the aliens, who may not be entirely as they appear with suggestions that they’re not of this reality, either. As well as affecting the map, the aliens have also captured the Zero Point in their Mothership and chucked The Foundation into the ocean.

Alongside Slone, the leader of IO, who we imagined to be antagonists up to this point, you’ve been knocking back the alien threat over the course of the season.

We also had a concert from Ariana Grande in the middle of all this, we seems to have been a distraction from the aliens, somehow.

In the Sky Fire event, you’re going to be taking the fight directly to the aliens aboard the Mothership in one final showdown. Will anything get resolved? Almost certainly not.


Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 Downtime

Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 will enter downtime as soon as the event concludes, which will then last until the launch of Season 8 the following day on Season 8.

While few games would do the same, Fortnite likes to have long periods of downtime to ensure they get everything right when updating to a newer version of the game, and also to allow their community to build hype and expectation.


What Happens With My Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 7 Battle Pass?

Once Season 7 has concluded, everything you unlocked over the course of the season on your Battle Pass will be yours to keep. Even if you’re a Fortnite Crew subscriber and cancel your membership, you will still keep all the cosmetics.

However, you won’t be able to make any progress on cosmetics like Kymera that you haven’t completely unlocked once the season ends, so don’t put off unlocking it all if you haven’t already. Use up all your Battle Stars, as you won’t be able to use them again.

If you’re somehow yet to buy the Battle Pass but often play Fortnite, it will cost you 950 V-Bucks, which will set you back $7.99 / £6.49 or a subscription to Fortnite Crew. Make sure you grind out the quests if you want to see maximum value.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
