What will happen when the Fortnite Countdown Timer hits zero?

Unless you've been actively avoiding Fortnite for the past few weeks, you'll know that a countdown timer has begun. But what happens when the timer hits zero?

There's been a lot of speculation that a rocket launch could be taking place when the timer hits zero. Or, it could be something to do with Fortnite Season 5, which Epic just recently revealed.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
