Fortnite Operation: Sky Fire Event — Everything You Need To Know

Learn everything you should know about Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 7’s end event—Operation: Sky Fire.

Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 7 is coming to an end rather quickly. The alien invasion-themed season began in June, and players had the entire summer to experience the various new items, map changes and updates Epic had in store. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Epic has officially announced the rumored Operation Sky Fire event that will transition players from Season 7 into Season 8.

Today, ESTNN breaks down everything you need to know about the Season 7 Finale, including the dates, times and what to expect.

Operation: Sky Fire

Epic Games released a blog post yesterday, detailing how players should prepare for Operation: Sky Fire. There are a lot of storyline implications buried in the information provided.

Here's a snippet from the post:

“With the Mothership’s sights set on the Imagined Order’s secret base at Corny Complex, Slone has hatched a plan to end the Invasion once and for all. You’ve answered her calls, worked as an undercover agent for the IO – now it’s time to infiltrate The Last Reality and put a stop to the Alien’s occupation.

It’s time to commence: Operation: Sky Fire.”

Event details have not leaked yet, but Epic did provide helpful information ahead of the Season 7 conclusion.

The blog post indicates that Operation: Sky Fire will occur at 4 PM ET on Sunday, September 12. When queuing in, players will “join a strike team and sneak aboard the Mothership to deliver IO’s final message to the invading Aliens.”

Fortnite’s Operation: Sky Fire playlist goes live 30 minutes before the event, at which point players should load in to reserve their spot. As many as 16 players can enter the event per party, and it’s always wise to get in early. Otherwise, you may not have the chance to enjoy the event.

Epic also noted that content creators should record the event since replays will not be available once Operation: Sky Fire concludes. You can also “Save the Date” in-game, but that does not guarantee you a place in the event.

Enjoy Season 7 While it Lasts

A new season on the horizon means time is running out for Chapter 2 – Season 7. As usual, gold bars will not transfer to next season, so you’ll want to spend them all before September 12. Additionally, all Battle Pass unlockables, Superman quests and Alien Artifacts will expire on that day. Be sure to complete any outstanding tasks before the season ends.
