Chapter 5 Season 1 Start Time

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 servers are expected to come back online at around 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 1 PM GMT on December 3, 2023.

Will There Be a Live Event?

Yes, there will be a live event ‘The Big Bang’ to close out the Fortnite OG season on December 2, 2023.

This time around, leaks indicate that we’re moving to Chapter 5 Season 1, where Peter Griffin and Snake will join the Battle Pass!

And what’s more, we can already see the time machine strapped to The Visitor’s rocket in-game, teasing an inevitable catastrophe that will likely kick off the live event.
