The season 4 downtime for Fortnite (Free) begins on Tuesday, May 1st, at 4:00 AM EDT. Season 3 of the the Battle Pass ends a little before this update, at 3:30 AM EDT, so you won’t be able to get the John Wick-inspired “The Reaper" outfit after tonight. There will also be a short period between when However, there are bulk Battle Pass tiers available in the shop, so if you’re willing to drop a few bucks for the cause, you can maybe get that outfit at last. Otherwise, it’s time to start grinding out those objectives, ASAP!
Brace for impact!

Season 4 of Fortnite will seemingly feature superheroes as a theme for many of the items, as early material teases what look like superhero masks and decorations. “Fight With Honor" sounds a lot like a superhero theme as well.
Leave your mark.

But the biggest mystery surrounds what will happen with the comet and meteorites that are appearing in the game. Speculation has suggested that Tilted Towers is set to be blown up, but now rumors abound that it’s Dusty Depot that will meet its demise at the hands of a giant object in the sky. Which sounds like more fun, those hangars are a bit more dull than the utter chaos of Tilted Towers. But we’ll see in less than half a day or so just what will happen with Fortnite‘s map, as those comets have to mean something!
Or maybe the entire map will get destroyed except for Tilted Towers. On iOS, I would be sure to check the App Store as early as possible tomorrow if you want to get back up and running in Fortnite, as version 4.0 is sure to be a major update.
