When is the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 release time? Well, that’s the one question on everyone’s lips right now, isn’t it. The next major content update and seasonal experience for Epic Games’ battle royale shooter is upon us; all we need to know is when exactly the new battle pass drops and what we can expect from the new season.

While we can’t fill in all the gaps, as Epic Games is keeping quite a lot under wraps, we do know that the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 release time is roughly 04:00 PST / 07:00 EST / 12:00 GMT on March 9. This is when the current battle pass is expected to expire, so you’ll need to make sure you’re unlocking any rewards you want soon.

It’s also worth noting that there will most likely be some server downtime to contend with on the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 release date. This is expected to begin around 00:00 PST / 03:00 EST / 08:00 GMT on March 9.

If you’re wondering what we actually know about this update, it’s not quite as much as you might hope – but, more than nothing.

Fortnite is channelling Cyberpunk 2077 for the Chapter 4 Season 2 theme, with leakers revealing that a neo-Tokyo POI and futuristic vehicles are going to be introduced alongside a Fortnite Star Wars event and a Fortnite first-person mode. It’s also worth noting that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 leaks claim a fan-favourite POI is returning. If all these leaks are true, we’re in for a season packed to the brim with content.

However, we recommend taking all of that with a small pinch of salt. The leakers are rarely wrong when it comes to Fortnite, but that doesn’t mean they’re guaranteed. This is one of the best battle royale games out there right now, though – and an overabundance of content is a part of that.

So, that new Fortnite Resident Evil crossover leak we reported on a few days ago could very-well come to fruition with an iconic duo from the horror series making an appearance in-game. But, we’re going to have to wait until we know more. Why not check out these Fortnite VPN options while you wait? You might find a way to win more matches with one.
