Players will finally be able to see what Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season X includes on August 1, and Epic Games announced when fans can expect downtime to begin.
Fans will be welcomed with the tenth season of Fortnite on August 1, with Epic dropping tons of hints on what we can be expecting with the latest season.
Every season of Fortnite Battle Royale includes an hour or two of downtime since each patch is rather large, and Season 10 will be no different.
Epic tweeted on July 31 that the patch size for the Season X launch will be larger than normal, so be prepared to wait.
When will Fortnite Season X downtime happen?
The official Fortnite account tweeted on July 31 informing players that downtime for Season X will begin at 4 am ET / 1 am PT.

Previous season launches for Fortnite Battle Royale have had around one to two hours of downtime, but it might be a bit longer for Season X.

We expect there to be at least one hour of downtime while Epic updates Fortnite for Season X, so be prepared to entertain yourself while watching the progress bar slowly inch forward.
Tenth Season of Fortnite Battle Royale
We got to see the official Season 10 teaser trailer that dropped a few subtle hints on what players can be expecting with the latest Fortnite season.
The trailer features Jonesy trying to run away from the exploding orb in the middle of Loot Lake, but is instead transported into another dimension.
Jonesy was able to see the space ship from Season 4, Kevin the Cube, and an assortment of characters wearing some of Fortnite’s most popular skins.
With Season X right around the corner, we are excited to see what Epic Games have planned for what might be Fortnite’s biggest, best season yet!
