TO UPDATE: Fortnite Season 4 is available on all platforms. The new update introduces an all-new Battle Pass, complete with the Spider-Gwen skin, The Paradigm (played by Brie Larson), and a gothic Meow. Elsewhere, Epic added the Port-A-Bunker, which creates an “instant 1×1 structure with reinforced metal walls and more.” Sniper rifles have received a boost and can once again shoot enemies with a headshot. Players can now find keys scattered around the island, which open vault doors containing high-value loot. Fortnite even appears to have taken a leaf out of Splatoon’s book, letting users turn to Chrome for a limited time. Epic further explains: “You’ll be pure Chrome for a limited time, which means you’ll be immune to fire damage and… turn into a Blob. As a Blob, you’ll move faster, take no fall damage, and gain the ability to fly. Dash. Run towards any building piece to Chrome-ify it and then dash through it!” Needless to say, the map also got a big update. You can see the new map below.

ORIGINAL: Fortnite fans are counting down to the start of Chapter 3, Season 4. The new season of Fortnite has a release date of September 18, while server downtime begins at 7am BST ET. United Kingdom. The offline maintenance coincides with the release of the 22.00 update, which will add all the new features that will be released as part of Season 4. Before the start of the new season, the first patch notes for the 22.00 update were revealed.
As you can see in the patch notes below, the 22.00 update fixes some long-running fixes in Creative and Battle Royale.
Epic Games has confirmed plans to release a fix for Grapple Gloves not interacting with Mutator Zones in Creative.
Similarly, Epic will fix an issue with vehicles clipping under the map when hitting the ground, as well as an issue related to radios in creative mode.
Even more exciting is the introduction of a new Battle Pass, which includes rewards like skins, gliders, harvesting tools, emotes, contrails, and accessories.
Judging from early trailers, Spider-Gwen from Into the SpiderVerse will be one of the new main skins, along with a chrome skin. You can check out the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass trailer below (it unlocks at 7am BST on September 18).
Fans can also look forward to new points of interest, with rumors that a chrome area could appear on the map.
Judging by the images broadcast before the new season, players will be able to use a new sniper rifle, while supply drops and tornadoes will also change.
