Fortnite: Season 5 Downtime and Patch Information Detailed

Share.
Big changes are coming.

Epic has detailed what Fortnite players can expect for the launch of Season 5 tomorrow.

Season 4 will conclude at 1am PST on July 12 and downtime for the 5.0 patch will begin immediately after. As soon as downtime begins, Epic will release patch notes detailing new additions and any other changes coming to Fortnite.

In the past, downtime between updates typically lasted an hour, but updates between seasons are typically longer. Epic has stated the patch size this time around will be larger than normal.

Any replays saved before the update will rendered useless after downtime concludes.

An Epic employee teased the upcoming changes in a Reddit comment stating, "The level of hype I've been carrying around has been heavy. Prepare yourselves!"

The lead-up to Fortnite: Season 5 has been ramping up each and every day. The Durr Burger turned up in a real-world desert this past weekend and seven llamas appeared throughout different European cities.

Epic has released three different teases leading up to Season 5. For more clues and speculation, see our Fortnite: Season 5 theories page.
