Ahead of the launch of Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 6, Epic have announced that there will be no event at the end of Season 5, but it will instead take place at the very start of Season 6.
Known as the Zero Crisis Finale, the event will show that the “fate of Reality” is at stake, and also establish the whole season ahead. With Agent Jones collecting hunters from across the metaverse to stop people from escaping the island, it’s going to be a pretty big showdown.
Here’s everything you need to know about Zero Crisis Finale, including when it starts and what to expect.
When Does the Zero Crisis Finale Take Place?
The Zero Crisis Finale will take place at the start of Season 6 on March 16th, 2021. In terms of time, it will likely start after downtime is over, which can take up to three hours. We will update this when we have specific times.
Zero Crisis Finale: What To Expect
Here’s the official description from Epic:
“Chapter 2 Season 6 launches on March 16 with the explosive conclusion of the events of Season 5. When you first launch into the new Season, you’ll play through the conclusion of Agent Jones’ mission in the Zero Crisis Finale. The aftermath of this event is sure to shape Reality as we know it.
“Don’t worry, the Zero Crisis Finale is a solo experience and you can play through it whenever you first log in during the Season. Want to watch it online first? We’ll share details soon on how you can watch the global premiere with everyone, beginning with our most ambitious story cinematic yet!”
From the sounds of things, it looks like Zero Crisis Finale won’t be a traditional in-game event as we know it as there won’t be much interactivity, hence the use of “cinematic”. This suggests that it will be closer to an in-game movie than, say, the Marvel vs. Galactus event of Season 4.
What we can almost certainly look forward to is the re-appearance of The Seven, the “big bads” of Chapter 1, following Agent Jones’ constant dabbling to draw their attention, as well as potentially a peek at who his boss is and what’s going on with IO. On top of that, Agent Jones will surely finish his ongoing transformation into the Default Jonesy style we know and love.
As for what this will mean for the Fortnite map, expect plenty of huge changes, as well as potentially even more old locations to make their long-awaited return to Fortnite.
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.
