This tweet of the leaked poster and a few other leaked posts has given us the follwing info:
- The in-game live event is most likely to be a concert
- 2nd Feb 2:00 ET is when the event is set to take place
- The stage is already being set at Pleasant park which is the selected venue for the event
- Other reports suggests that music and fireworks will be heard through-out the map when the event takes place
- A special LTM is going to introduced named “Party at Pleasant Park” which will include re-spawning
- A Marshmello Bundle is going to go on sale which will include an outfit and a pick-axe.
February 2nd is the scheduled date of the event and more surprises are set to appear soon on. Lets not forget, the last in-game event had the whole map covered in ice after the event took place.
A lot has been happening at Polar Peak and layers of ice have melted revealing parts of a huge castle. We might see major changes in that area of the map.
Seperate LTM to be announced for the Event
A new Limited Time Mode will be available on Feb 2nd which will allow players to respawn back into the game. This ensures that players don’t miss out on the event by being eliminated. In previous live events, players had to trust their opponents and ensure that no players shoots each other to make sure they get to see the event. Epic has still not officially announced any details of this event, but data miners are finding leaks on an hourly basis, since the releaseof update v7.30.
What do you guys think? Will you be attending?
