Fortnite Countdown Live - Watch the Rocket Launch Here

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?

The simple answer is that no one knows right now. The countdown timer is due to hit zero at approximately 1:30 pm EST. Check out the stream just below to see for yourself what happens when the timer reaches 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.

If you own the Season 4 Battle Pass for Fortnite Battle Royale, you'll know there's a brand new bunch of weely challenges for you to take on right now. Head over to our Fortnite Week 9 Challenges guide for more.

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.
