It’s happening, people! Season 4 of Fortnite begins today (Sunday, September 18th), and a big new trailer for the upcoming season has already arrived to get you excited.
Although Brie Larson hasn’t confirmed it on her social media accounts, the Fortnite season 4 trailer appears to all but confirm that the Captain Marvel star is playing the superhero character Paradigm.
The Fortnite season 4 trailer also confirms the long-rumored fact that in the new season, a liquid metal substance called Chrome is invading the island and consuming everything.
In addition, the title card at the end of the trailer confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Gwen will be returning to Fortnite in season 4. (presumably as part of the battle pass). Continue reading to learn more about the new season!
Fortnite Season 4 Release Date
Season 4 of Fortnite is set to begin on September 18th, 2022. We don’t know how long it will last, but we expect it to last until December 2022.
The current battle pass expiration date is September 17th, 2022, a Saturday, so make sure you have reached level 100 to receive all of the rewards before it expires.
The map changes for season 4 have not yet been revealed, and it may be some time before they are, but there were some major changes in season 3 and we expect this to happen again when season 4 goes live.
Here’s what’s new in Season 3:
The most obvious change is the demolition of Dusty Depot and its subsequent reincarnation as Dusty Divot.
Risky Reels is an entirely new location that was not created by a meteor. This season, there appears to be a lot of emphasis on cinematic magic, and Rusty Reels appears to be the hub for all things filmmaking.
A new residence was added to the east side of the map, southeast of Lonely Lodge. It’s a fantastic update that adds chests and loot to a previously barren area, but those who stay and search the basement will discover an incredible secret.
You can’t simply abandon the good guys in their lair. A tall mountain can be found on the map’s west side, east of Snobby Shores. On the west side of the mountain, a very cool hideaway blends into the rock wall.
One of the more surprising changes in Tilted Towers is what’s new. For the majority of Season 3, fans predicted that the meteor would strike this popular zone, but Tilted Towers was mostly spared. Unless you liked the three-story building in the city center. Then you’ll almost certainly be let down.
When does Fortnite Season 4 begin in the United Kingdom?
Epic confirmed in a blog post that the Fortnite server outage began at 2 a.m. ET on September 18th. That is the exact time when Season 3 ended and Epic began patching Season 4 into the game.
In the United Kingdom, this means that the game was shut down around 7 a.m. BST on Sunday, September 18th.
We’d expect Fortnite season 4 to be playable two to three hours later, so let’s guess 10 am BST for the UK season 4 start time. We’ll let you know if an exact time is announced.
