Downtime for our next season begins tomorrow, August 1 at 4 AM ET (0800 UTC).
This period X for the game will likely begin in the early morning hours of August 1st if it is to follow the same release plan of previous seasons. This timeline means many players will have to either pull an all-nighter or get up very early to play Fortnite Season 10 at its official start.
Community members have been very vocal regarding their displeasure with a variety of new additions to the battle royale title in the past few seasons. Period X looks ready to address these concerns by sending the Fortnite map back in time in Season 10 by adding back fan-favorite locations, such as Factories.
