If you’re struggling to get access to the Fortnite servers on May 1st, you don’t need to worry because it’s not just you.

The Fortnite servers went down as planned at 1am PT (4am ET, 9am BST, 6pm AEDT) in order for Epic Games to take down Season 3’s Battle Pass. We’re all hoping that means they immediately implement the changes for Season 4.

The Battle Royale genre has become a rather popular one across 2017 and 2018, but Fortnite has branched away from the pack with constant content updates, challenges and incredible developer support.

One element that has separated Fortnite from the competition has been the Battle Pass seasons, which provides a whole host of ways to unlock and earn new content in game.

Although the game is ‘free-to-play,’ players have the ability to purchase a ‘Battle Pass’ for 950 V-Bucks (~$10.00) which offerers a variety of new features throughout multiple ‘tiers.’

On Tuesday, May 1st, Season 3 of Battle Pass came to an end, and with that, the players who populate the title turned their attention to find out what exactly Season 4 will involve.

Over the course of April, we saw increased meteor activity in the sky above the Fortnite map and towards the end of the month, small meteors began falling in the vicinity of players.

Anticipation is rife as to what will happen with a superhero theme already confirmed by Epic Games. Will they be able to save the Fortnite world from certain disaster?

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.
