Epic Games have once again ended another season of Fortnite with a bang as the Collision live event comes to an epic conclusion, which means fans are now gearing up for the start of Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite fans were once again blown away by the latest live event, which saw players take on the IO in one final battle for the island.

Following the epic live event that took place on Saturday, the servers entered an extended period of maintenance. Fortnite fans can expect the new update for Chapter 3 Season 3 to go live on Sunday, June 5th, 2022.

Although we’re still awaiting confirmation from the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, the launch of previous seasons has seen downtime last around 12 hours.

Players will be required to download a brand new patch update before they can jump into the latest season of Fortnite, with the new update including a fresh Battle Pass, new features, and plenty of new content for players to enjoy.
