Fortnite OG season release TIME, date, Battle Pass, server downtime and live event news | Gaming | Entertainment

Update: Fortnite fans are now able to download the OG season update, as Epic takes the game offline for server maintenance on all platforms. To celebrate the release of the update, Epic Games has posted an OG season gameplay trailer, showing off some of the new features and skins.

ORIGIN: Fortnite developer Epic Games is preparing to release the new season on PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android. Old-school fans will love the new season of Fortnite, with Epic bringing back the old map, weapons and more. Fortnite OG has a November 3 release date on all platforms. Needless to say, the game will launch with a major update, not to mention a long period of server downtime.

Fortnite server downtime will start when the game is taken offline at around 7am UK GMT.

Although there is no official server downtime schedule, the game is expected to remain offline for approximately 3 hours. This means you should be able to start playing Fortnite OG at 10am GMT UK time.

Epic Games announced the news on Twitter: “Where do we droppin?” reads Epic’s tweet. “v27.00 downtime starts at 3 AM EST and matching will be disabled early.”

In a follow-up tweet, Epic confirmed that the file size would be much larger than usual: “Please note that the file size of update v27.00 will be larger than usual on some platforms.”

Sadly though, there won’t be a live event for the OG season, although fans can look forward to a big in-game event when the new Chapter launches in December.

Judging by the early leaks and teasers, the Battle Pass will feature mash-ups of past skin styles, including Dark Storm Renegade Lynx, Omegarok, Harbinger Armor Omegarok, and Spectra Knight.

Emotes, meanwhile, include the Doze Dab, Lil’ Lomgboat and Flashback Breakdown. That’s on top of the Contrail Dessert Dropper.

The Season 1 map will also make a return as part of the Fortnite OG content season, featuring some classic points of interest.

This includes Junk Junction, Haunted Hills, Pleasant Park, Snobby Shores, Greasy Grove, Lazy Links, Frosty Flight, Flush Factory and Salty Springs.

Needless to say, Epic Games will also bring back the iconic location of Tilted Towers, which has always been a fan favorite.

Old-school weapons like the pump shotgun, OG assault rifle, LMG, turrets, traps and a bolt-action sniper rifle will also be featured.
