Fortnite’s Doomsday live event is finally here after several weeks of delays and waiting.
The event starts at 2 p.m. EST on Monday, June 15 and is expected to bring about massive change ahead of Chapter 2, Season 3. Fans are expecting a new map, although Epic Games has revealed very little about what we can actually expect in Season 3.

Epic Games suggests you arrive to the event 30 minutes early to “secure your spot” as server wait times can be a bit long. But if for some reason you aren’t able to make it in, or you don’t have quick access to the game and you want to watch on your computer or mobile device, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll include a live stream of today’s Fortnite live event below in case you’re someone who wants to watch without doing so in-game.
How to watch the Fortnite live event
If you want to watch the Fortnite live event in-game, it’s pretty simple. Fortnite will shut down other game modes and let you play in a dedicated mode for the live event. Fortnite suggests you arrive to this game mode about 30 minutes early so you can secure a place with heavy servers and longer than usual wait times. Once you’re in, the game will be a Team Rumble style until the event is ready to take place. When the event starts, all shooting will be disabled so you can enjoy the experience.
If you want to watch the Fortnite live event without jumping in a game, then there are plenty of options as well. You can find plenty of streamers who will be providing their commentary during the live event on Twitch. You can browse all Twitch channels airing Fortnite here.

You can watch NickEh30’s stream above as he’s a family-friendly streamer who will be airing the event live. Epic Games typically doesn’t stream its own content, so you’ll need to rely on someone else to stream it. Thankfully there will be several great options to watch from.
If you miss the event live, there will also be replays of streams available shortly after it takes place.
