Epic Games has unveiled the details of Operation: Skies of Fire, the final event of Season 7 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite, which kicks off on September 12.

As we learn from the information on the official site, the event will start at 22:00 Italian on Sunday 12 September. The players, organized into assault teams, will have to sneak aboard the mother ship of the aliens who threaten to invade the world of Battle Royale and deliver the latest OI message.

"Now that the Mothership has targeted the secret base of the Imaginary Order at Podere Pannocchia, Slone has devised a plan to end the Invasion once and for all. You have answered his calls, you have worked as an undercover agent for the OI ... now is the time to infiltrate the Ultimate Reality and put an end to the alien occupation. Time to begin Operation: Skies of Fire. "reads the introduction to the Epic Games event.

Fortnite The playlists of the Operation: Skies of Fire of Fortnite will be available 30 minutes before the start of the event, therefore at 21:30. It will be possible to participate with a full lobby of 16 friends. In addition, although optional, Epic Games recommends "wearing a suitable disguise: if you really have to invade an alien spaceship, do it in style".

A new legendary assignment will be available from September 9th at 4:00 pm which will reward players who have emptied their stocks of ingots, which will grant XP to complete the Battle Pass. In this sense, we also recommend that you collect all the Alien Artifacts, obtain the Kimera styles and options, as well as complete the tasks of Superman, as it will no longer be possible to do so after the start of Operation: Skies of Fire.

In the meantime, the Will Smith skin has arrived on Fornite.

Operation Sky Fire will be an interactive Fortnite Event

The reveal of Operation Sky Fire was not a surprising one for Fortnite fans. We knew that a big end of season event was coming, but there's something a bit different about this one. It appears that Fortnite is breaking tradition with this event and we're all for it.

We'll go into more detail about what makes Sky Fire unique and why it is an event that is well worth attending.

Operation Sky Fire is Interactive

Most Fortnite events are passive and can only be attended and watched. On the Rift Tour, you could attend the concert but that was it. There was one tiny bit of interaction in the form of a flying/shooting stage.

Operation Sky Fire appears to be a fully interactive event that will see you play a huge role in the outcome. That's not to say that there are different endings but you will actively engage with the story to its completion.

A Perfect Ending

Fortnite Season 7 has been a rollercoaster. One thing that seems to be universally agreed upon is that it was one of the better seasons of Chapter 2 so far. What fans really want to see from here is growth.

What better way to capitalise on a well-received season than to close it out with a bang, hyping up Season 8 in the process. There are still a lot of unanswered questions going forward and Operation Sky Fire has the chance to help reveal all.

We are still awaiting the arrival of The Cube, also known as 'Kevin'. Could this play a role in the event and Season 8 moving forward? Hints around the theme of next season are also up in the air. The only bit of info to leak is a pyramid POI and mummy skin, suggesting we're off to somewhere like Ancient Egypt.

We'll keep you up to date with more surrounding Operation Sky Fire and Fortnite Season 8 as the news breaks.
