Downtime for Fortnite Season 6 Has Now Begun

Downtime for Fortnite Season 6 Has Now Begun

But how long will it last?

Fortnite Season 6 will be kicking off later today, on September 27. Epic has temporarily taken the game offline to implement a new patch, before the next seasonal event launches.

Just below, you can see the announcement of the downtime for Fortnite, as made through the official Fortnite Twitter account yesterday. Downtime for Fortnite is nothing new, especially with a brand new season for Battle Royale about to launch, bringing in tons of new cosmetics and challenges with it.

Epic hasn't revealed how long Fortnite will be down for, but once the downtime has been completed, Season 6 will launch. In other Season 6-related news, there's some new additions for the new seasonal event that we already know about, like the brand new skin just below.

For a complete compilation about all the other information we have on the new seasonal event for Fortnite Battle Royale, head over to our Fortnite Season 6 guide.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
