Fortnite has a seasonal play model involving quests and a Battle Pass that has worked like a charm for ages. Here’s all the information we have regarding the start of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 and the end date of Chapter 4 Season 2.

But with Season 2 now winding down, fans are looking ahead to what the next major update will bring. Thankfully, we’ve got everything you need to know about the end of Chapter 4 Season 2, and the start of Fortnite Season 3, which is called “WILDS.”

When does Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 end?

Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2 is currently scheduled to end on Friday, June 9, 2023.

The Battle Pass timer displayed in-game says that players have until this date to unlock all the rewards, so that’s when the downtime is likely to begin.

The original date was June 2, but it seems like Epic Games need a little more time to get everything in order for the next season.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 start date

Epic Games have officially revealed that Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3 will also begin on June 9, 2023. This means that once Season 2 comes to an end, there will be some server downtime, but on the same day, players will be able to hop onto the game and experience Season 3, which the devs are calling “WILDS.”

Epic will announce when to expect the downtime as we get closer to the day of the update, so stay tuned for more information.

Will there be a Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 live finale event?

There has been no confirmation from the developers yet, but we expect Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 will end with a live event.

Traditionally, many seasons conclude with a huge event that completely changes the map and kicks off the storyline for the new era. These often come with interactive sections where players can join in and help decide the fate of the island.

Chapter 4 Season 1 didn’t feature a grand finale, so there’s a good chance that Season 2 will pull out all the stops to deliver a memorable end.

As you’d expect, Epic keep these spectacles quiet until they’re ready to announce them, but it shouldn’t be too long before we know more.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 expected content

Fortnite’s Twitter account officially revealed a teaser for the new season, Fortnite WILDS. In the teaser, a new jungle-themed biome was revealed, showing players a first look at a new map area they will be dropping in for Season 3.

According to leaks, the jungle area will feature mud, a new type of ground surface that will slow players down. Palm trees, cactuses, and volcano elements may also be coming to Fortnite to diversify the landscape even more and maybe bring new game mechanics to the battle royale.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 Transformers crossover

Fortnite also teased the Tier 100 Outfit for Chapter 4 Season 3, asking players to guess what it is as the official Transformers Twitter page posted the side eyes emoji underneath. This pretty much confirms that a Transformers crossover is coming to the game, which is in line with the leaks.

On May 27, 2023, prominent leaker ShiinaBR shared an image on Twitter that is rumored to be key art for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. The image features Optimus Prime, who is one of the most popular characters in the Transformers franchise, further implying that the crossover is coming.

The image is most likely real, especially as Fortnite have now officially revealed the main character in the leaked key art as a Season 3 skin called Lorenzo. It is also worth noting that Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will hit the cinemas on June 9 and it seems like the perfect time for Fortnite to finally implement the highly-anticipated Transformers crossover.

Apart from Optimus Prime, players have spotted a Raptor on the right edge of the image hinting towards the return of rideable Raptors on the map. Last but not least, there are a few survey skins and clearly, there’s a lot for players to look forward to.
