Epic Games have announced the release date and time for the upcoming v4.3 Content Update for Fortnite: Battle Royale

The update is set to go live on June 5th at 5 AM PST / 8 AM EST / 1200 BST and will not have any downtime.

The announcement was made on June 4th via a post on the official Fortnite Twitter page.

Bounce to impressive heights on the v4.3 Content Update.
Available tomorrow, June 5 at 8 AM EST (1200 GMT). No downtime.

The v4.3 Content Update is set to be filled with exciting new content, including the new “Bouncer” jump pad item that was announced on June 3rd.

Judging by its description and appearance, the Bouncer is very similar to the directional jump pad item that previously existed in Fortnite but was removed shortly after Season 1.

As mentioned previously, the v4.3 Content Update will not require any downtime, the reason being that it only contains new content and no fixes and/or in-game adjustments.

This follows what appears to be a trend from Epic Games in which they follow a regular Game Update with its Content Update the following week.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
