Fortnite is going down on March 10, but when and for how long?

Fortnite’s Chapter 4, Season 1 is coming to an end in a matter of hours. The season that gave us the Ageless Champion, the Shockwave Hammer and Ex-Caliber Rifle, the dueling Dragon Ball and My Hero Academia crossovers, and so much more will be bowing out.

You still have a few hours left to play if you haven’t in a bit, or if you want a few more go arounds with the Deku Smash, Ex-Caliber Rifle, or any number of items and weapons that may be gone by the time you wake up tomorrow. Most of which we don’t know about yet.

But if you want a few more rounds, you better get them in now, as the downtime and changeover from Season 1 to Season 2 are coming far faster than you may think. What time is all of this happening? Well, according to Fortnite Status, the downtime will be coming on March 10, at 2 AM ET, and will probably be down until about 8 or 9 AM ET. That’s usually when the servers come back up, usually about six or so hours later.

What if I want to play one more round of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 1?

The match-making for the season will probably go offline around 1:30 or 1:40 AM ET, so if you want to get the last match of Season 1 in, you should probably keep an eye on the clock.

For those who aren’t sure what time this will affect you, here’s a simple rundown of some time zones.

For those living in the Pacific Time Zone, the game’s last match will take place around 10:30 PM ET on March 9. In Japan, you’re looking at a 3:20-3:30 PM, or 15:20-15:30 JPT time. For people in England, your last call will likely be around 6:30 AM or so.

So plan the rest of your night wisely.

Next. The Shockwave Hammer should remain in the game permanently. dark
