Original Story

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 has been going for nearly the complete summer time. In truth, the season started on June fifth, two weeks earlier than the Summer Solstice. It ends, simply a few days earlier than the official begin of Fall.

We’ve had some clues drop in regards to the new season, which is known as Paradise—though that seems to be a darkly ironic title. While Season 3’s Vibin moniker gave it enjoyable summery vibes, Paradise is an odd framing for what seems to be a really spooky season.

Weird liquid chrome is current in every of the teaser photos thus far, and it seems our heroes—and the map—might get sucked beneath the gooey, oily trying stuff.

We’ll know extra quickly sufficient. The finish of Season 3 is nearly right here, and Season 4 is simply across the nook. Here’s what you’ll want to know.

Season 3 formally ends on Sunday, September 18th at roughly 2am ET. That’s 11pm on Saturday, September seventeenth when you’re on Pacific Time. That breaks all the way down to 6am UTC on Sunday the 18th.

From right here, we will often count on three or 4 hours of downtime relying on the replace, and naturally you will have to replace your recreation after Epic Games does their server-side magic.

Season 4 will kick off straight after the servers come again on-line, so you ought to be up and working very first thing Sunday morning whenever you stand up all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and able to snag some Victory Royales.

We’ll be masking the brand new Battle Pass, map adjustments, challenges and no matter else comes up right here at Forbes Games. I hold hoping Epic will convey again first rate challenges and enjoyable stuff like Loading Screens and hidden Battle Stars or cash, however I attempt to not get my hopes up.

Good luck on the market, younger padawans. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook for extra Fortnite Season 4 protection.

Update #1

Here’s what we learn about Chapter 3, Season 4 thus far based mostly on leaks, rumors, teasers and official bulletins from Epic Games.

The Battle Pass Skins

Gwen Stacy

We know for positive there might be a Gwen Stacy Spider-Man pores and skin that seems to have the cool glitchy cel-shading animation used within the great Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse film (certainly one of my very favourite Spidey motion pictures of all time).

Goth Meowscles

We additionally know that there is a Goth Meowscles pores and skin, good for Halloween, though the “muscle groups” within the cat’s identify look like a misnomer at this level. Goth Meowscles isn’t ripped in any sense of the phrase.

A 3rd pores and skin sporting chrome fingers may very well be a part of the Battle Pass as effectively, because of what we have seen within the teasers (although take this with a grain of salt, naturally).

Finally, widespread streamer SypherPK can be getting his very personal Icon Series pores and skin, though it will not be a part of the Battle Pass. In the picture of the brand new pores and skin there’s additionally a brand new scoped AR or tactical rifle of some type, so count on that as one of many new weapons in Chapter 4, Season 4.

Other adjustments we will count on are tons and many chrome on the map, together with chrome tornadoes which is likely to be extra like monuments than shifting climate occasions. We must also see a bunch of balloons floating throughout the map as effectively.

Patch 22.00

The new patch will drop at 22.00 when the sport goes down on Sunday, however as of this writing we do not know the precise measurement of the replace on every platform. I’ll replace this publish as soon as we all know.

Live Event

There will sadly not be a stay occasion to cap off Season 3 and kick off Season 4, which is unquestionably an enormous disgrace. Fortnite’s stay occasions are a few of the greatest on the market and an actual spotlight every season. Hopefully we get a giant live-event to finish Season 4 in a number of months.

Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 4 is nearly right here!
