The wait for the Fortnite community is over after it was confirmed in-game that Season 3 will end on May 1st, with Season 4 making room just days later.

Details about Season 4’s Battle Pass have been unfolding day by day leading up to the end of Season 3, but there still remains an air of mystery around what exactly it will entail.


The superhero theme is all but obvious, but how will that tie into the meteor theme that has dominated the Fortnite headlines towards across April?

A quick look online and you’ll find a whole host of theories about what’s set to happen with the meteor, Tilted Towers and the rest of the map, but Epic Games have done a stellar job of keeping the facts behind closed doors, at least for now.


The end of Season 3 was always confirmed as May 1st, but we’ve been void of an exact time.

That all changed on April 29th when a countdown timer appeared in-game that shows it ends at 12:30am PT (3:30am ET, 8:30am BST, 5:30pm AEDT).

However, before you get excited, we still don’t have confirmation of the time when Season 4 will begin. The previous switchover resulted in a one day grace period where the Battle Pass wasn’t online to allow for Epic Games to implement the updated changes, but this time around it appears it should feature on Tuesday, May 1st.


Millions of Fortnite fans around the world are excited to find out what Season 4 has in store and we’ll keep you updated on what exactly the content entails when it goes live.


Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
