Fortnite OG, Chapter 1 Map, And Everything We Know About The Next Update

Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 4 is coming to an end, but the next season promises to be something completely different. It appears that Fortnite will be taking a trip back in time, with a time machine playing a significant role in the upcoming season. There are also rumors of exciting collaborations with Lego and Doctor Who, as well as a return to the Chapter 1 island. Let’s explore what we know so far.

When does the next Fortnite season begin?

The current season of Fortnite is set to end on November 3 at 11 PM PT / 2 AM ET. If previous season transitions are any indication, players can expect a few hours of downtime before the new season goes live. The servers should be back up by 7 or 8 AM ET on the morning of November 3.

Is it the start of Fortnite Chapter 5?

No, the next season is not the beginning of Chapter 5. Instead, it appears to be a bridge season that will transition players from the Chapter 4 island to the next chapter. There have been no official chapter designations for the new season so far, with Epic referring to it as Fortnite OG.

What is Fortnite OG?

Epic has been teasing Fortnite OG in various out-of-game ways. They have been sending nostalgic items to influencers and streamers who played Fortnite in the early days, highlighting the throwback aspect of the new season. There haven’t been any official gameplay teasers yet, but numerous leaks have provided some insight into what to expect.

According to leaks, Fortnite OG will transport players to the battle royale island as it existed during Chapter 1 Season 5. However, the island will go through several iterations over the course of the month, transitioning from Season 5 to Season X. To accommodate the changes in gameplay mechanics, Epic will reportedly add ziplines and other travel infrastructure to the island.

While some reports suggested that certain modern conveniences introduced in Chapter 3, such as sliding, sprinting, and mantling, would be removed, the Fortnite social media team has debunked those rumors.

The changes in Fortnite OG will be holistic, meaning the loot pool will reflect the state of the island during each specific season. For example, during the Season 6 portion, players can expect Season 6 guns and devices.

Fortnite OG Battle pass

There have been no official announcements or leaks regarding a battle pass for Fortnite OG. However, it is safe to assume that there will likely be one, potentially featuring remixed Chapter 1 skins. As of now, there is no further information available.

Will Fortnite OG include any collaborations?

While there hasn’t been recent chatter about collaborations in Fortnite OG, earlier rumors mentioned two major brands: Lego and Doctor Who.

Doctor Who would be a perfect fit for a time travel-themed season, though there hasn’t been much discussion about it lately. Lego, on the other hand, has officially announced a collaboration with Fortnite. The specifics and timing of the collaboration are still unknown, but it is expected to involve the ability to import real-world Lego creations into the game.

As more information becomes available, we will update this article with the latest news, rumors, and teases.
