These updates into Fortnite (complete list here) are pretty detailed and might be enough to eventually get me back to buy fortnite items. While I am expecting Sony comes around on the cross-progression, Epic Games is moving ahead fast with enhancing and refining Fortnite, creating something that us casual gamers just can't ignore.
It's almost that time. The sky itself has cracked in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and Epic Games is teasing a stunning map overhaul that looks like it's going to incorporate elements of Western, American and Viking Western culture.
The programmer was working hard to make the beginning of season 5 as cataclysmic as you can, beginning with a rocket launching a little while ago and continuing through a series of rifts which were eating portions of the map and spitting out mysterious objects.
There's an ARG that's involved llamas scattered throughout the world along with a giant Durr Burger head plopped in the middle of the California Desert. It all comes to a head with the beginning of Season 5, but you may be wondering when, exactly, that is. Here's what time Season 5 will start in Fortnite: Battle Royale.
Turnover time in the world of Fortnite is 4:00 a.m. Eastern. Season 5 probably won't begin at that specific moment, however. This is a big upgrade, and will probably need some downtime to execute. So Season 5 will start whenever downtime finishes, which is normally about 1-2 hours once it begins. So we can expect Season 5 to start between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 12.
