When is the Fortnite live event, Big Bang?

Players are currently enjoying the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 or Fortnite OG season which has taken players on a nostalgia trip. Devs re-introduced the old Chapter 1 and weapons to relive the excitement of the original Fortnite. This also helped the game to break its player count record with whooping 44.7 million players jumping at the start of Chapter 4 Season 5.

Fortnite OG is been here for well over a month and took fans back to the golden days. While players are all set to bid farewell to the OG Season. Epic Games has announced a new in-game event with exciting collaborations. Fans know Epic Games loves collaborating with popular artists and organisations. The Big Bang Event, Fortnite’s latest event addition has caught a lot of attention prior to its release with Rapper Eminem’s name attached to it.

On the other hand, since there seems to be a time machine attached to the rocket this time, the Big Bang live event could finish very differently.
