If you want to know everything about the upcoming season, we have all the information you need.

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5.

When does Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 start?

Chapter 4 Season 5 begins on Friday, November 3, 2023, and ends on Sunday, December 3, 2023.

There will be a few hours of downtime before the season begins to allow Epic Games to update the servers.

We expect the downtime to begin approximately 8 o’clock in the morning UK time as this is usually when new seasons start.

The downtime can vary depending on the size of the update, but usually ends around 12:00 – 1:00 p.m However, UK time may take a little longer.

If you want to stay informed when the downtime ends, follow the instructions @FortniteStatus on twitter.

What will change for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5?

Most of the changes for Season 5 are being kept secret, but we do know that the theme revolves around a flashback to Chapter 1.

The Chapter 1 map is making a comeback, but with a number of changes to adapt it to modern Fortnite gameplay.

We don’t know exactly what changes will be made, but we assume the layout will be roughly the same, with new ziplines for those playing in No Build mode.

Some old items will also be removed from Chapter 1, including shopping carts and turrets.

What will be included in the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 Battle Pass?

We don’t know everything about the Battle Pass yet, but we do know that some costumes will be making a comeback.

Remixed versions of Ragnarok, Lynx and Black Knight have been teased for the Battle Pass.

The Black Knight outfit is particularly exciting, as accounts with the original skin can sell for around $250 to $400 (around £200 to £350).

Stay tuned for more details on the Battle Pass when Season 5 begins tomorrow.
