Fortnite is hosting a second round of its animated short film festival dubbed “Short Nite 2,” a successor to the game’s original Short Nite festival that developer Epic hosted earlier this year.
according to Epic, Short Nite 2 will feature “a series of animated, online shorts from emerging creators” that, like the original event, will air in the game’s combat-free Party Royale mode. Short Nite 2 kicks off on Friday, July 23 at 2pm ET and lasts approximately 40 minutes. If you can’t make the debut, the shorts will continue to run nonstop until July 25 at 2:00 PM ET.
The developer hasn’t announced the full list yet, but it emphasizes that the stream will feature two Gildedguy animation shorts, including a debut of a new short film in the series, Gildedguy gets up!.
To celebrate, Epic is also releasing Gildedguy as a character skin in Fortnite itself — it goes on sale July 22 at 8 p.m. ET in the item shop.
