  • 10:00 pm BST
  • 1:00 pm PST

This will also be the only showing of the event, so if you are not able to watch it during this time then you will have to watch a VOD. 

As well, Epic has also noted that you should have your game loaded up with an hour to go before the event.

They will start letting players access the event 30 minutes before it begins.

Epic does this as they will limit the number of players attending the event, as the servers are not able to handle it.

Perhaps the old map will return.
