FORTNITE is rolling out the red carpet for its second Short Nite Film Festival. This in-game event will play a 40 minute reel of animated shorts non-stop, featuring online animated works such as Simon’s Cat, Snail’s House & Gildedguy. The Short Nite Festival first debuted in Fortnite back in February of this year, with a running time of only 30 minutes over 24 hours.
However, Epic Games have made this Short Nite Festival bigger and longer. Short Nite will run for 48 hours, beginning at 4AM AEST on July 24. Which gives you 72 chances to watch all of the animated shorts in full. Players will be able to attend Short Nite via the Big Screen (found at co-ordinates B4 & C4) by queuing up in Party Royale. Alternatively, you can watch while you play via Picture-In-Picture mode in Battle Royale.
Gildedguy’s appearance in Short Nite doesn’t end on the silver screen as he’ll also be making an appearance on the Island. As of July 23 at 10AM AEST, Gildedguy’s outfit, Back Bling and Pickaxe will be available from the Item Shop.
