When Does Fortnite: Chapter 4 – Season 2 End?


For fans of Fortnite‘s lore, Chapter 4 – Season 2 has maybe been the quietest season ever, with very little in the way of movement when it comes to lore. Content, on the other hand, is a different story, as Epic has been reeling off crossover skin after crossover skin, and constantly changing the loot pool. Season 2, also known as Mega, has been a very solid Fortnite season overall, but all good things must come to an end.

Fortnite: Chapter 4 – Season 2, also known as Mega, is scheduled to end on Friday, June 9th, 2023. The game will likely go into downtime at 8 AM BST / 2 AM CT / 1 AM PT, and then remain offline until roughly around noon UK time, with players also having to download a patch that’s likely going to be a significant amount of gigabytes.

We already know a little of what to expect of Chapter 4 – Season 2 thanks to early trailers and leaks. It will be called Wilds and there will be a significant map change with the centre of the map collapsing to reveal what appears to be a brand new jungle biome.


As for the skins, we’ve already had a first glimpse at some of the Battle Pass skins, and it also looks like Transformers’ Optimus Prime will be the tier 100 skin for the season, just based on interactions between the official Fortnite and Transformers Twitter accounts (as well as the obvious leak of the loading screen).


Apart from that, Season 3 of Chapter 4 is still a bit of a mystery. It’s unclear if they will return to more of the controversial survival mechanics seen in Primal, or if the big jungle biome in the middle of the map is the only change for the season. We also don’t know if first-person mode will be coming as part of the new season, though Epic may hold that back for Chapter 5 as a main new feature.

It will be interesting to see how the community reflects on Season 2 as a whole. We’ve seen a lot of fun branded content, such as the arrival of Attack on Titan and more Spider-Man skins, but the original stuff has been found somewhat wanting — Ranked, for instance, hasn’t gone down entirely well with some of the fanbase. Some updates have also taken out some of the fun items unneccessarily, so here’s hoping Epic find a better balancing act next season.

One thing’s for sure, we’re hoping they still keep in the ability to play in bot lobbies. The playerbase these days is so sweaty they need towels.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
