“Content creators and gamers looking to relive the final moments of Fortnite Chapter 2 should take steps to record and archive their experience as reruns will not be available,” Epic said today.
“Players will not be able to change their settings once ‘The End’ begins, so please adjust the visual options to your preferred viewing experience before joining. As the season will end one day earlier, all players who log in before the season ends will receive a reward of 225,000 XP.
Fortnite Chapter 2 began in October 2019 after the original Battle Royale game map was sucked into a black hole at the end of Fortnite Season X.
