"Fortnite" has become well-known for its special events in the game, many of which coincide with real-world vacations. Of course, the game has its own New Year event, completing with a drop of ball and fireworks for when the clock hits midnight.
But "Fortnite" has a base of global players with more than 200 million players around the world; which means that players in different time zones will see the new year at different times. The creator of "Fortnite", Epic Games, had a simple solution: the Head of Year's ball at "Fortnite" will descend to the top of every hour to explain midnight to the 24 hour zones of the world.
However, some players who spent the first few hours of Year Head in "Fortnite" were surprised to see the fireworks coming up for their own time zone. When the ball falls into "Fortnite" players are forced to dance for a few seconds, making it impossible to ignore the moment. Several players hurried to the social networks to announce that the celebration of the New Year of "Fortnite" had disappeared in advance.
An honest mistake to be safe, but the "Fortnite" community has increased with responses to the "early" event, causing an answer from Epic Games. The co-founder and vice-president Mark Reinvinced the players who believed that the event had been triggered at the beginning of the error.
"Do you really do not understand how the time zones work or do you think it is the only time zone in the world?" Rein tuiteó.
Epic spokesman Nick Chester and Rein confirmed that the event would occur every hour to take into account each time zone.
Hopefully, the event will show how much the "Fortnite" community extends, and remember that the Earth revolves around the sun, not around them.
