Short Nite Returns – watch shorts in Fortnite’s Party Royale!

Short Nite is back with a new lineup of animated, online shorts in Fortnite’s Party Royale starting 24 July, 4am AEST and running non-stop until 26 July, 4am AEST!

This Short Nite festival features animated, online shorts by up-and-coming creators such as Simon’s Cat and Snail’s House. These shorts have originated and gained massive popularity online, and now they’re making their way to Fortnite! Grab your Jumbo Popcorn, sit back, and get ready to enjoy the show.


The total runtime for the festival is about 40 minutes and includes two shorts from the popular and full-of-action Gildedguy saga, with one premiering for the first time on Short Nite 2. In celebration of the world premiere for Gildedguy Gets Up, Gildedguy will be joining the fight on Fortnite Island with a brand-new Outfit, Back Bling, and Pickaxe. Head to the Item Shop starting on 23 July, 10am AEST to get your hands on Gildedguy!

As always, players can check out Short Nite 2 by queuing up in Party Royale, scheduling their own Party Royale event, or watch the shorts while playing in Battle Royale via Picture-In-Picture mode.
