June 9, 2023: Maintenance has been completed for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3, but the servers still appear to not be responding for some players trying to get in.

With a new era of the battle royale titan just around the corner, you may be looking for a Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 release time countdown. We're here to help, with all the details you'll need for the new content drop.

In this guide, we'll give you a countdown to the new Fortnite season. That way, you can see exactly how long there's left to wait until the new battle pass lands, making the agonising wait that bit less painful.

When is the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 release time?

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 will release on June 9, 2023 at at 10 AM BST/2 AM PST.

At least, that's what we have to go off based on the release time of other content drops in Fortnite. Epic Games has yet to give a concrete time at which the new season will release, though weekly updates and mid-season patches tend to go live on this time.

Now the day and time has arrived, we're seeing the servers down for a bit longer than usual. Keep checking on the game and the Fortnite Status Twitter page, and you'll be in the game in no time.

How do I download Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3?

Fortunately, it's really easy to download Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. In fact, it doesn't differ at all to other seasons or updates in the game.

Once the new Fortnite season releases on June 9, the servers will go down for maintenance. Matchmaking tends to close a few hours before this, to give Epic Games time to enact all those crucial changes.

Then the next time you boot up Fortnite, you'll need to download a software update. This is usually quite substantial, so getting it done as soon as you can is crucial so you can dive in ASAP.

Therefore, provided you've got an internet connection and you open Fortnite after Chapter 4 Season 3 releases, you'll be able to download the update!

When will we learn more about Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3?

Epic Games has remained surprisingly tight-lipped on Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 so far. Luckily, that's set to change, with the publisher appearing at Summer Game Fest 2023 to reveal more about the new season.


Until then, we already know a decent amount about Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3, primarily thanks to reputable leakers. Check out our battle pass guide to see the new skins and features we can expect in the new season.
