Fortnite celebrates New Year

The special in-game event will happen every hour, which will cause tons of fireworks to go off and players can dance off too. It will start with a special music playing and a disco ball being lowered from a portal in the sky. It will then show a countdown from 10 and when it reaches zero, fireworks go off and players will be locked into dancing and cannot be killed. A giant 2019 will also form in the sky by the fireworks that were fired off.

The event started around 11 pm ET yesterday and has now happened every hour, on the hour, ever since.

The game is now available on PlayStation 4.
