The Fortnite Unvaulting countdown information has been discovered in the game files of the latest update. Thanks to dataminers dedicated to diving deep into each Fortnite patch as it drops, we now have a good idea of when the Fortnite Unvaulting event release time and date will be. Knowing ahead of time will allow eager players to ensure that they are prepped and ready for the mysterious event. Here’s when the Fortnite Unvaulting event is expected to be.
Fortnite Unvaulting Release Time and Date
Thanks to dataminers @ShiinaBR and @FortTory on Twitter, we now have new information about the rumored “Nexus event,” which it’s widely believed will allow players to vote on a currently vaulted item. The item that gets the most votes will presumably then be returned to the game. You can find out more information about the Nexus here.
This Nexus event is thought to be the same as the Fortnite Unvaulting event. That is, it will be an occasion when players will get to choose a vaulted weapon that they think should return to the game. With controversial items like the X-4 Stormwing plane being possible candidates to return, you can bet that a lot of players will want to have their say.
As for when exactly players will be able to vote on Unvaulted items. Well, @ShiinaBR has stated that the event will likely happen at 3 PM ET/12 PM PT. While this is not yet confirmed officially by Epic Games, there is a lot of evidence to support the high probability of the event taking place at this time.
The "Unvaulting event" will take place on Saturday at 3pm ET / 12pm PDT!
A new event called "UnvaultingCountdown" started yesterday when the rune appeared on the volcano and the event ends on Saturday at 3pm ET. The event will most likely occur when the countdown event ends. pic.twitter.com/wihm5OPlv1
