With Fortnite chapter 3 now over, players are wondering when the Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 start date is.
The Fortnite chapter 3 finale live event, Fracture, conclude almost three hours ago. During the event, players were tasked with different tasks including collecting Zero Point balls.
When the event ended, the cinematic trailer for Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 played which provided some insight into what we could expect in the new season.
The Hulk, The Twitcher, Doom Slayer, and Mr Beast are all featured in the trailer. The skins will either be in the Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 Battle Pass, or they’ll be available at some point during the first few weeks of the season.
Players are unable to play the game right now. The servers were down for a short period of time but Epic Games restored the online services within half an hour.
However, when players log into Fortnite, they’ll be greeted with a waiting loading screen that can’t be navigated past. Players will be unable to play the game until the launch of the new chapter and season.
With players’ patience wearing thin already, they’re asking when Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 will start. Here’s all the information we have so far.
When is the Fortnite chapter 4 Start Date Time?
We know Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 will start on December 4th, 2022. However, there has been no tweet from the official Fortnite status Twitter account announcing downtime.
We’d expect the Fortnite Status Twitter account to tweet that the servers will go down for maintenance within the next few hours.
In terms of a time when Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 will start, we can go off previous seasons as well as a hint on the official Epic Games YouTube channel.
The Fortnite game YouTube channel has a premier for the Fortnite chapter 4 season 1 launch trailer on December 4th, 2022, at 3 AM ET / 8 AM GMT/UTC.
We’ve seen the launch trailer scheduled to release at that time for previous seasons too. However, the season doesn’t usually officially begin until at least a couple of hours after.
Based on that, we’re expecting the start time for the new chapter to be around 6 AM ET / 11 AM GMT. However, we’ll update this to keep you in the loop if Epic released an official start time.
