Players can also watch the films while in the game’s standard battle royale mode, but risk having their attention split between building forts and watching movies.
Here’s the list of movies you can expect:
- Makin’ Moves
- Rollin’ Wild
- Car Park
- A Single Life
- Commuter Glitch
- Creature Comforts
- Lynx & Birds
The unprecedented event will begin on February 20 at 2 p.m. EST. Epic confirms that the full docket of films will last about 30 minutes. The festival, however, will be continually rebroadcast for the next 24 hours.
