Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 3 has ended, and the game has moved on to its new Season 3. However, it is not playable right after finishing the final event of last season: the game shows us a loading screen of some mushrooms and a sea background, accompanied with the legend To Be Continued... The usual question at the moment is when does Fortnite Season 3 start? In this news, we give you the answers.
Fortnite Season 3 start date and time
Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 3: VIBIN’ begins on Sunday, June 5, 2022. This was confirmed by Epic Games in the blog post regarding Gen Hoshino's upcoming concert. The time at which it starts has not been made clear; on previous occasions, when an event ended, there was a countdown in Fortnite indicating the start time. This time there is no countdown; just a loading screen of a sea background.
However, given precedent, we don't find it too far-fetched to assume that Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 3 will begin around 4:00 AM ET on Sunday, June 5. At this time Fortnite patch 21.00 would be available for download. This time would be next across the United States:
Finally, we were able to re-enter the game after updating it with patch 21.00 as of 8:00 AM ET on Sunday, June 5.
We know it's just getting started, but what we do know for sure is when Fortnite Season 3 will end. According to the game's API, Chapter 3 Season 3 will end on September 18, 2022. So consider this to get all the Battle Pass items in time.
