The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 countdown is officially on as fans await the return of the OG Fortnite map, weapons, and cosmetics.
After a generally successful Chapter, Epic Games is sending Fortnite Chapter 4 off in style. Instead of creating a new biome, like Fortnite WILDS or, building fresh Vaults, like Fortnite Last Resort, Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 is bringing the community back to the Chapter 1 map that made the game famous. Combined with a Battle Pass full of nostalgic skins, Fortnite OG could be the best Fortnite season in 2023.
To prepare for arguably the most hyped Fortnite season in years, we have the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 countdown leading up to the big release.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 Countdown
The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 countdown is ticking down to the release of Fortnite OG on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023. Matchmaking will be disabled at 2 a.m. ET before Epic Games loads the new season on the servers. After a few hours, the update will be live across the globe, and both new and returning fans can experience Fortnite Chapter 1.
At the time of writing, there is less than three days until Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 goes live. Without a live event, the massive update will simply replace Fortnite Last Resort. Fortunately, leaks promise plenty of in-game events throughout Fortnite OG as Fortnite Chapter 5 looms.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 Theme
The Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 theme is Fortnite OG. After weeks of rumors, Epic Games finally confirmed the return of OG maps, mobility, weapons, and more.
The nostalgic season perfectly fits in the lore of Fortnite Last Resort; Kado Thorne's time machine, which brought all the fan-favorite Mythic weapons back to the island, malfunctioned and is sending the community back to Fortnite Chapter 1.
As the countdown to Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 draws closer, we can expect Epic Games to reveal the gameplay trailer, along with the full Battle Pass, to connect all the leaks and teasers taking over social media.
