Fortnite’s new Season starts tomorrow, Downtime and more

Fortnite fans, get ready for the MEGA update! According to the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, downtime for Chapter 4 Season 2 is scheduled to begin on March 10, 2023, at 2 AM ET. Matchmaking is expected to be disabled shortly before the downtime starts.

Update: The server downtime is estimated to last for ~5 hours.

The new season promises a futuristic, Neo-Tokyo theme, with new points of interest, weapons, and items like Katanas/Swords, futuristic motorcycles, and glowing tubes for mobility. Players can also look forward to the return of the Pump Shotgun and the introduction of legendary augments that can reboot you when you die, increase your max shield, or give you siphon.

As with any major update or new season release, it’s possible that the maintenance may take longer than expected, so players should be prepared for potential delays or extended downtime. It’s always a good idea for players to follow the official Fortnite social media accounts and website for any updates or changes to the maintenance schedule.

The future’s looking bright for Fortnite players, and with the new season just around the corner, it’s time to gear up and get ready for MEGA.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
