Fortnite Chapter 4 Start Time: When Will Fortnite Servers Be Backed Up?

Fortnite Chapter 4 is just hours away. While Epic hasn’t publicly stated when Fortnite’s servers will be back, some historical precedent and reasonable deductions give us a pretty clear window of time. The short answer: You won’t be waiting long. For a more detailed answer, keep reading. Here’s when you can play Fortnite again.

When will Fortnite servers be back up?

Fortnite is currently in scheduled downtime following the Chapter 3 Finals. This means that Chapter 4 is upon us and with it will come, among other things, new weapons, a brand new island and a new battle pass. But none of that matters until the Fortnite servers let players back into the game. Epic likes to keep this a surprise, but recent history dictates it Fortnite will be playable again sometime around 4 AM – 7 AM PT / 7 AM – 10 AM ET tomorrow, December 4th. This three hour window is our best guess based on having covered several seasons of Fortnite now, and as always, the actual time is subject to change for any number of reasons.
