Our first full teaser for the Collision event is here! It seems to collate all the previous snippets we've seen before, showing members of the Seven uniting under a giant teddy mech, preparing for some sort of conflict.

Fortnite end-of-season events always tend to have one hulking character in the middle of its arena. It appears that this time around, it'll be a larger version of the Mecha Strike Commander.

Equally, some information can be gleaned from the wording of the teaser. It says to 'suit up,' which suggests may actually get to control the mech at some point. Given Epic has said that the event is best experienced in groups of four, something of that scale could well happen.

The Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 event, called Collision, will arrive on June 4, 2022. It's a one-time only event, so be sure you're ready and there on the day so you don't miss it.

The event starts at 4PM ET, and the equivalent based on your time zone. One thing to note, though, is that the Collision event isn't repeatable. Therefore, you need to see it through the first time and be ready on the dot, because you can't get back into it afterwards.

The Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 event is called Collision, as confirmed on the Epic Games website recently. It comes in its own playlist, with squads of four players recommended to enjoy it properly.

Sadly, there aren't many more details yet aside from the name of the event and its start time. It's said to include "daring moves and heroic experiences," though we'll have to reserve judgement until a trailer's out.

All we know so far is that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 event will likely be tied to the new spire that's just arrived on the map. It's found slap bang in the middle of the island, and seems to be a new hub for IO Forces.

In terms of official footage, our first glimpse was a tweet of military radio station, ordering IO soldiers to get to their battle stations. Therefore, we anticipate this new event to comprise of a massive battle at the spire location.

Equally, we've got some information from renowned Fortnite leakers that also point towards a militaristic theme in this new event. According to ShiinaBR, the aforementioned spire contains a doomsday device; likely a blistering weapon that'll irreversibly affect the island.

On top of that, we saw our first full teaser, showing the Seven forces booting up a giant mech teddy, reminiscent of the Mecha Strike Commander skin.

As per the new information on the Collision event, you won't be able to replay it. It's a one-time only thing, and if you aren't there at the start time on the dot, you'll miss it entirely.
