When will the servers be available again?

With a not so heavy heart, it’s time to say goodbye to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. While it was received with some mixed reception, there’s no denying that it provided a very good time for many players. That said, all eyes are now on the upcoming season and the storyline it will entail.

However, before players go to Paradise, the downtime has to happen first. This time, Epic Games has been kind enough to offer maintenance details a day in advance. Based on official information, the update size will be larger than usual, and the release time will also be radically different. That said, considering it’s the start of a brand new season, this is to be expected.

The downtime is set at 2:00 a.m. ET. It is likely that the server will be removed 30 minutes before this happens. Players must complete their late night session before 1:30 AM ET. Now that that’s out of the way, it’s time to move on to some of the finer details regarding the update.


How long will Fortnite downtime last today (September 18)?

v22.00 will be released on Sunday, September 18 with a downtime starting at 2:00 am ET. We will provide another update when maintenance is complete. Please note that patch sizes for all platforms will be larger than usual. https://t.co/1ZxeWb2PuD

As the developers point out, this time the update is bigger than usual, which means it will take a lot of time. Rough estimates suggest that the downtime should be completed by 8:00 a.m. ET. However, it may take longer if complications arise.

Nevertheless, bearing in mind that most of the Fortnite player base is located in the United States of America, most players will wake up just in time to try out Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. Plus, since it’s a Sunday, you’ll have plenty of hours in hand to hone the new battle pass and unlock cosmetics.
