Epic Games just revealed information about the ultimate little bit of action in Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 7 grand finale: Operation: Sky Fire! This is often all about the aliens; it’s all about the entire “The Last Reality” business; it’s all about the Imagined Order (IO) and what’s to return the lot. If you’ve been expecting this Season 7 IO spy business to succeed at its peak, the time is NIGH!
Operation: Sky Fire will happen on September 9, 2021, at ONE TIME. this is often a free, one-time event that Epic suggests “players won’t want to miss.” However, this event is different from most therein replays won’t be available. For anyone. Even you, Jerry. the most event begins at 4 PM ET on September 12.
Starting at 10 AM ET (also on September 12, 2021,) players will want to “gather and spend your Bars for this season’s Bargain Bin Wild Week.” The event will begin later within the day, and it’ll mark the top of Epic Quests, Superman Quests, and it’ll be the last time players are going to be ready to exchange their currently held Battle Stars.
On September 9 at 10 AM ET, Bargain Bin Wild Week for the season begins. First, there’ll be a Legendary replacement Quest that’ll reward players with XP for “offloading your cache of Bars.” In addition, any unclaimed Battle Stars or Alien Artifacts at the top of Chapter 2, Season 7, are going to be “automatically redeemed for rewards and designs starting with the earliest available unlocks.”
Quests outside of the Battle Pass will carry over into the subsequent season. Epic gave examples like Vox Hunter and LeBron James as Quests which will carry over into the new season.
Operation: Sky Fire will allow all players to hitch for free. You’ll want to connect the event with a full lobby of 16 friends, and open doors half-hour before the most event starts. You’re getting to want to drop by with as many partners on this mission as possible.
This event will be a reverse invasion on people who would otherwise do the invading, with all players hitting aliens where it hurts… their spaceship. Epic’s announcement suggests that players will want to “wear an appropriate disguise” because “invading an alien spaceship should be wiped out style.” Then we will get this everywhere with and advance to Chapter 8!*
Note September 12, maybe a Sunday, so those of you out there already in class or heading back to high school in the week better confirm they’re through with HOMEWORK before this event begins. Parents – be keen to the present situation. The event itself won’t last the entire night, but once an individual starts playing Fortnite for the night… things can become involved.
*Based on what we’ve heard over the past few weeks, Season 8 will likely spin right into Halloween with some Sideways action. We’re talking a touch purple ooze spilling forth from an alternate dimension. Not necessarily straight-up Stranger Things, but… Stranger Things (without the branding). It’s getting to get SPOOKY in here.
