How to Watch the Zero Crisis Story Cinematic

The official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted a link to the Zero Crisis story cinematic. The tweet reads, “If they won’t give us what we want. Then we’ll take it ourselves. 3.16.2021. #FortniteSeason6.” You can find the video right here.

How Long Will the Cinematic Be?

While Epic Games hasn’t officially said anything about the length of the cinematic, fans have been doing some digging. By simply throwing the YouTube stream into a playlist, you can see that the video will be 3 minutes and 15 seconds long. While not a feature film by any means, you can expect some great story beats that introduce what’s next for the battle royale.

What time is the Live Event Premiering?

The live event is set for 8 a.m. GMT. If you, like me, struggle with time zones and conversions, don’t worry. Use this handy guide to know exactly what time the event will premiere where you live.
