Epic Games’ Fortnite New Year Celebration Looks Groovy

Epic Games’ new year celebration confused many players with their time zones.

Fortnite isn’t just merely the biggest game of 2018 but has also become a genuine cultural phenomenon. From middle-school playgrounds to frat-house parties, this battle royale genre never seems to surprise its players, eventually becoming an obsession for millions of fans.

Epic Games’ Fortnite is famously known for its special in-game events, many of which conflict with real holidays. Epic Games set up its own new year event, featuring a giant disco ball dropping from the sky and fireworks for when the clock strikes midnight.

Fortnite has more than 200 million players worldwide, which means that players in different time zones will sight the new year at different times. To simplify this, Epic Games will drop the New Year Ball at every hour to account for midnight in all 24 time zones in the world.

When the ball drops at midnight, everyone collectively dances for few seconds, making the moment worth capturing. However, the Epic Games news threw many players off guard when they witnessed the fireworks arrive early for their time zones. Many of them took to social media to mock, which they believed was an ‘error.’

 

 

 

Co-founder and Vice-President of Epic Games, Mark Rein in response tweeted,

Epic spokesman Nick Chester later confirmed that the event would occur every hour to account for every time zone.

 



 

 

2018 was a great year for Epic Games’ Fortnite. So besides New Year eve, Epic Games has many more reasons to celebrate their success.
