Epic Games has revealed a major live event called “The Big Bang” that will take place on Saturday, December 2 at 2pm ET. Called “a new beginning for Fortnite,” the in-game experience will mark the free-to-play shooter’s apparent transition to a significant new chapter. Fortnite is currently hosting a shortened “OG” throwback season that brings back the game’s original island locale and familiar weapons and items from earlier incarnations. Players can jump into the event 30 minutes in advance in parties of up to four players. Epic Games said that cloud streaming services can be used to play for those who can’t run Fortnite natively on their respective devices. Fortnite remains immensely popular with an estimated 241 million players over the last 30 days per third-party data. However, Epic Games had to make some economic shifts this year, including layoffs and increased prices for their in-game currency V-Bucks. Prices of V-Bucks increased for U.S. players, with the basic bundle of 800 V-Bucks rising from the current price of $7.99 to $8.99, while the heftiest pack of 13,500 V-Bucks jumping from the current $79.99 to $89.99.
