With a not-so-heavy heart, it’s time to say goodbye to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Although it had a mixed reception, there’s no denying that it offered a very good time for many players. With that being said, now all eyes are on the next season and the story it will bring with it.
However, before players reach Paradise, downtime must first occur. This time, Epic Games has been kind enough to provide maintenance details a day in advance. According to official information, the size of the update will be larger than usual, and its release time will also be radically different. That said, given that it’s the start of a new season, this is to be expected.
Downtime is set to occur at 2:00 am ET. The server will likely go offline 30 minutes before this occurs. Players must end their night session by 1:30 am ET. With that out of the way, it’s time to move on to some of the finer details regarding the update.
How long will Fortnite’s downtime last today (September 18)?
As stated by the developers, the update this time is bigger than usual, which means things will take a long time. Based on rough estimates, downtime should conclude no later than 8:00 am ET. However, things can take longer if complications occur.
However, considering that most of the Fortnite player base is in the United States of America, most players will wake up just in time to try out Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. Also, since it’s Sunday , there will be plenty of hours available to grind the new battle pass and unlock cosmetics.
New content and changes in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4
Where to start with the amount of new content? For starters, Ali Hassan aka SypherPK will be adding his own Icon Series skin to the item shop next season. This is a great victory not only for him but also for the community.
Speaking of skins, four battle passes have been revealed. Although data miners have not been able to figure out what they are called, images are available. In that sense, Gwen Stacy from Earth-65 will probably be the level 100 skin in the BP. She will be unlockable once players reach page 10. By saving Battle Stars, players should be able to unlock her early at level 90.
Moving on from cosmetics, there isn’t much information on major map changes. Aside from an arena image Donald Mustard tweeted (which made no sense), it’s unclear what players can expect on this front. However, it is known that Chrome will sooner or later cover the entire island. How and when this will happen remains a mystery.
Another conundrum is the antagonist of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. While The Bloomwatcher was initially thought to play his role, the introduction of Chrome has left everyone confused.
Also, there is currently speculation that the antagonist may be Geno, the founder of the Imagined Order. That said, for now, this is an unconfirmed theory. Players will have to wait for the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 cinematic trailer to get a better understanding of things.
On that note, some of the things expected to appear in the upcoming season include and are not limited to:
- first person mode
- 50v50 (zero build)
- storm king
- iron man gloves
- mechanic v2
- Updated plans
- Halloween Goo Boss
- Sand Borrow updated to “Blob”
- Squad Heal Item
- super storm item
- rocket launchers
Although there is no confirmation of the same, considering that these files were recently updated, there is a good chance that at least half of them will make it to the game. With all of that being said, it’s time to prepare for Fortnite’s downtime and jump on the hype train.
