Epic Games is beginning preparation for its next big in-game Fortnite event on 6th August 2021, with update 17.21 now deployed to get the Battle Royale island ready for the show. It all kicks off at 3:05pm PT / 6:05pm ET / 11:05pm BST on the aforementioned date, but if you're in need of a reminder whilst gunning for first place, a big countdown timer is now placed in the middle of the map. Previous shows hosted in Fortnite include a performance from rapper Travis Scott and the airing of various Christopher Nolan flicks, so this upcoming event should be well worth tuning in for.

As Eurogamer reports, recent leaks point towards an upcoming Ariana Grande concert in the game, so it's possible this is what Epic Games is working towards next week. Fortnite almost always puts on an impressive spectacle, however, meaning this new show will probably be worth the long wait since the last one. We'll be sure to cover whatever happens.
