Players are reporting that the Fortnite servers are down today (October 3rd / 4th 2022. Here is the latest status.
It’s been just over two weeks since the launch of Fortnite chapter 3 season 4. The new season introduced several map changes, new items, a brand new Battle Pass, and much more.
The season is scheduled to end at the start of December, making it one of the shortest seasons of chapter so far and if leaks are to be believed, this could be the final season in chapter 3.
Before the season ends, we’ll have at least five major patch updates and the first has been announced by Epic Games.
The v22.10 update will go live tomorrow. As usual, the servers will go down for scheduled maintenance to prepare the servers, but it looks like the servers are already down.
