It is finally here, Fortnite Season 6 is around the corner and fans couldn’t be more excited. The new season is set to start on Tuesday, March 16. Epic Games has teased this new season a lot in the past few weeks, and we will finally see what happens with the Zero Point. But now the question everybody is asking is, what time does the new season start?

What Time Does the New Fortnite Season Start?

The new season will start overnight, with the Zero Crisis premiering on YouTube at 4 a.m ET. For those who are new to seasonal Fortnite changes, this is traditionally when Epic Games kicks off new seasons. So, hardcore fans might be looking at an all-nighter.

Of course, the downtime begins at 12 a.m. ET so servers will be unavailable while Epic Games preps for the next season.

While this is very early for most of us, it may be worth staying up the extra hours for the season to start. Who knows what all could happen when the season starts. Batman may pop up, the map will definitely look different, everything is up in the air right now.

So, if you are planning on being online when Season 6 comes out, you should probably take a mid-day nap so that you’re up and ready at 4 a.m ET on Tuesday, March 16.
