Fortnite Season 4 Starts Tomorrow with a Bang

Fortnite Season 4 Starts Tomorrow with a Bang

It's time. Have you performed whatever rituals are necessary for your species?

Here it comes. After weeks of teasing and taunting, Fortnite Season 4 is finally ready to land. Quite literally, it seems. A tweet from the official Fortnite Twitter account declares "Brace for impact! Witness Season 4 tomorrow [May 1]" and punctuates its grand statement with a hazy image of four mysterious-looking figures standing amidst rubble.

Whatever happens tomorrow, it's going to be a game-changer—maybe apocalyptically so. A comet's been hovering over Tilted Towers for a few weeks now, but the adverse effects of that comet ramped up last week. Meteors are falling from the sky, demolishing structures and players. Televisions in-game are running emergency notices non-stop. And Epic Games' own Twitter account has gradually been introducing superhero imagery and language onto its feed, suggesting that however Season 3 ends—via meteor impact, alien invasion, whatever—Fortnite is going to need heroes to clean up the mess and / or restore the world to working order.

You're going to want to keep up-to-date on all the cool and worrying things going down, so make sure to visit our guide to Season 4 of Fortnite.
