While there are four different events, the earthquake event is the most important one as it seems that it will be about the season 8 introduction.

Epic Games has done many live events in the popular game before. It all started in season 3 with meteors that were falling out of the sky. The game developer has then released the Rocket Launch event in season 4, which was arguably the biggest event in the game so far.

After that, "Fortnite Battle Royale" players had a chance to experience a few more in-game events, with the most recent one being the Ice King event at Polar Peak.

At the moment, we don't know much about the earthquake event, but there is a good chance that this event completely changes the in-game island.

The island may be split into multiple parts, and if this happens, it will probably happen at the start of the eighth season. Season 7 ends in late February, which means that these buildup events will happen very soon!

The Festivus event

The Festivus event will feature popular music producer Marshmello. The event will take place at Pleasant Park on February 2, and the DJ will be performing live in the game. According to data miners, players will be dancing during this event and Marshmello will be an NPC.
