Almost the entire summer has passed since Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3. The season actually started on June 5th, two weeks prior to the Summer Solstice. Just a few days before Fall officially begins, it comes to an end.
There have been some hints regarding the upcoming season, Paradise, even though it seems like a darkly satirical name. Although the name Vibin gave Season 3 a cheerful, summery vibe, Paradise is an unexpected setting for what seems to be a very gloomy season.
Every teaser image thus far has strange liquid chrome, and it seems our heroes—and the map—might get pulled under the goopy, oily-looking material.
We’ll learn more in due time. Season 3 is about to come to a close, and Season 4 is not far behind. What you should know is as follows.
On September 18 at around 2:00 a.m. ET, Season 3 will officially come to an end. If you’re on Pacific Time, that is 11 p.m. on September 17th. That amounts to Sunday, October 18 at 6 a.m. UTC.
After Epic Games performs their server-side wizardry, we can typically anticipate three to four hours of downtime from here. Of course, you’ll need to update your game.
Season 4 will begin as soon as the servers are back online, so when you wake up on Sunday morning bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and prepared to snag some Victory Royales, you should be ready to go straight away.
Here at Forbes Games, we’ll be covering the new Battle Pass, map updates, challenges, and anything else that comes up. I try not to get my expectations up, but I keep hoping that Epic would bring back good challenges and interesting features like hidden Battle Stars and money and fun loading screens.
