'Fortnite' Chapter 2 Season 7's One Time Operation: Sky Fire Event Begins Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 3, 2021 @ 10:49 a.m. PDT

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

Mark your calendars and save the date! The fate of the Island is in your hands in Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 7 grand finale Operation: Sky Fire, starting September 12 at 9:00 PM BST

With an explosive opening attack, a mysterious alien army invaded the Island at the start of the Season. Not much is known about the alien invaders besides their name, "The Last Reality," but Doctor Slone took it upon herself to command over the Imagined Order (IO) and fight back.

Now the Alien Mothership has set its sights on the IO’s secret base at Corny Complex, but Slone has a plan to end the Invasion once and for all. After answering her calls throughout Season 7, and working as an undercover agent for the IO, it’s finally time for players to prepare to infiltrate The Last Reality and put a stop to the Alien’s occupation.

Operation: Sky Fire -- Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 7 ending event -- takes place at 4 PM ET on September 12. Join a strike team and sneak aboard the Mothership to deliver IO’s final message to the invading Aliens. 

The Operation: Sky Fire event playlist will be available 30 minutes prior to start for players to jump in and reserve their spot in the mission. Be sure to log in early and standby for go time. You can join the event with a full lobby of 16 friends, so bring the whole squad and more to help you tackle Slone’s secret mission.

For content creators and players looking to relive the moments of Operation: Sky Fire - note that replays for the event will not be available. Please take appropriate steps to record and archive your experience to share with everyone.

And be sure to wear a suitable disguise - invading an alien spaceship should be done in style.

Mission Ready Checklist

Sensing something big about to happen, Island residents and vending machines have heavily discounted their wares and services! 

Gather your Bars and spend them all before your stash resets in this season’s Bargain Bin Wild Week -- starting September 9 at 10 AM ET. To help you along the way, a new Legendary Quest will reward you for offloading your cache of Bars with some final XP to top off your Battle Pass.

Speaking of your Battle Pass, complete any remaining Epic Quests and exchange your Battle Stars for the rewards you desire before Operation: Sky Fire begins. Any remaining Alien Artifacts should similarly be collected and exchanged for your favorite Kymera styles and options. 

Any unclaimed Battle Stars or Alien Artifacts at the end of Chapter 2 Season 7 will be automatically redeemed for rewards and styles starting with the earliest available unlocks, so if you want to snag a particular option, exchange them now. 

Superman’s Quests will also need to be completed before September 12 at 4 PM ET. Help Clark Kent recover his memory and unlock Superman's special Glider, Pickaxe, and Shadow style. 

Note that Quests outside of the Battle Pass like those for LeBron James or Vox Hunter will carry over into the next season.

With the Mothership poised over the Island’s center and Slone preparing the Imagined Order’s final salvo, it’s all up to you to execute Operation: Sky Fire.

Fortnite is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Android and iOS.
