Epic Games has pushed back the start date of Fortnite Season 3 to June 11, and also pushed back the in-game event that was due to take place on May 30.

The team at Epic explained that the reason for the delay was to get everything ready for the new season, and also that the in-game event, called Device, will take place on June 6.

They also explained that players will be able to make use of the extra time to complete their battle pass challenges.

When does Fortnite Season 3 start?

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 will now start on Thursday, June 11 – a one week delay from it’s originally scheduled start date.

A delay to the start of a new season won’t come as much of a surprise to most players, considering how the past two seasons have similarly been delayed.

When is the Device event?

Epic have revealed that the leaked in-game event, previously rumored to be called Doomsday, will be happening on Saturday, June 6 at 2PM ET.

The event will be a one-time-only experience, so there won’t be any reruns, meaning you’ll need to be there on time to catch it in-game.

It’s recommended that you show up 30 minutes early to get into a game successfully – you don’t want to be waiting in the lobby when it’s on!

The event was previously being dubbed the Doomsday event by leakers, but no official name had been given. As for what will happen, leakers have again given us some clues.

The Agency POI looks like it will be getting totally destroyed, and left as a ruin, so Season 3 will clearly still be continuing the Shadow vs Ghost storyline from Season 2.

The Agency will apparently look like this in Season 3.

Whether this map change happens as a result of the Device event or not, is unclear. After all, there is almost a week between the event itself and the new season starting.

These in-game events are always a big community gathering though, and do a great job of bringing players together around one special moment. It might just be the boost Fortnite needs before dropping into a new season.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
