A Fortnite player has turned the recent Doomsday event that ended Chapter 2 Season 2 into a news show with coverage from inside the map.

Chapter 2 Season 3 has now arrived after a few delays and the finale of Season 2 culminated in a live event where the Agency building was destroyed and the device Midas created slowly rose out of the ground forcing players to float in the air. All of a sudden, after visions of being in an office, players started to notice that the purple storm that once threatened players not in the game's circle, had turned into a tsunami.

And thus, the map changes began syncing up the map to Season 3's new name—Splashdown.

Fortnite Player Turns the Doomsday Event into a News Show

A clever Redditor named IFlySmooth, posted a video where he ran a news show covering the Doomsday event. He cuts between an anchor in the booth and live coverage of the event itself. Then in a surprising twist, he stages an interview with Midas himself who claims his evil brother created the device himself and used it to blow up the base.

The video, shown above, was a clever, well made depiction of the ending of Chapter 2 Season 2 and the response from Redditors was unsurprisingly very positive.
