Server Downtime, Season 1 Start Date, New Island Map and End Event
Epic Games’ Fortnite is about to go from massive to… Even bigger. NS Chapter 2 finals are on the way and we’re about to enter uncharted waters once again with new Fortnite Chapter content that promises to continue to break boundaries and impress. We don’t think the onslaught of co-op content is going anywhere, but there’s a lot more that comes out of Fortnite – a battle royale game that feels like a sandbox game. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 3 – well, what we know so far.
FINAL – The final stage of pre-preparation
Over the past few months, Fortnite’s islanders rallied together against alien invasions and the Queen of the Cube to fight for “ultimate reality”. That fight will continue for the next few days, and it looks like Chimpanski – the Astronaut responsible for preparing the defenses – has finally finished building his base.
The POI called “Fortress Guava” has been dynamically improved over the past few days and now it has reached its final stage – you can check it out below:
It doesn’t look like much, but it will give Fortnite Islanders enough of a chance to beat these big odds and save Fortnite Island – again.
Extra XP before the end of chapter 2
The current Fortnite season will end a day earlier than originally planned, and there’s some bonus XP offered to everyone who owns the Season 8 Battle Pass.
You can log into Fortnite right now and claim 225,000 XP in an effort to help you make the difference between where you are and the end of Season 8’s Battle Pass.

SPOILERS – Event details may be revealed
It’s worth watching the latter with a bit of salt, but it could be a great insight into what to expect from the Fortnite Chapter 2 Finals Event ahead of the server downtime and Chapter 3 Season 3. first.
TweaBR shared the following – season it with a pinch of salt until we know more:
Sliding Mechanism – This was revealed in a previously leaked Loading Screen image and it looks like it will appear in an event rollout update.

This seems to confirm the rumors we’ve been seeing about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 – The Downtime will begin on December 5 and will end on December 7 when the New Chapter begins. Looks like The Foundation is going to have a dialogue and we don’t know what to think…
Spider-Man coming in chapter 3?
NS same source Those who had predicted that Wonder Woman would come to Fortnite have now reinforced their belief that Spider-Man will be out soon.
We don’t know about you but it was a damn time that Spidey had his long-awaited Fortnite debut!
Epic Co-Founder Chumes In
After being asked directly on Twitter whether Season 9 or Chapter 3 is next in the Fortnite calendar, Epic Co-Founder Mark Rein replied that ‘Time will tell’.
Of course, this can continue to fan the flames of community engagement, but it’s also a dangerous game if the final product doesn’t deliver.
It’s increasingly likely that Chapter 3 is near.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Start Date
If the clues are really trying to tell us there won’t be Part 9 and instead we’re going straight to Chapter 3, which starts on or around Monday, December 6. We know that Season 8 ends on Sunday, December 5 and will probably do so with a major event.
This may seem a bit premature for many players as Chapter 1 lasts a lot longer and transitions like this seem like it should be a lot more exaggerated. In fact, Epic would be hesitant to announce something like this ahead of time because it would have a much bigger impact if taken as a surprise.
Chapter 3 Hints / Clues
Over the past few days, there have been many clues to Fortnite Chapter 3. Initially, the main theory came from @FNChiefAko on Twitter. They theorized that the Queen of the Cube was the key to everything and maybe activate Chapter 3 at the end of Season 8.
This stems from the weird words in the Cube Queen song and the inscription on her cosmetics. What started as a theory actually received a bit of a backlash, more and more leakers and creators figured out information verification and what it points to.
No one has stuck their neck out to make sure that Chapter 3 is understandable, but it seems like a lot of people have access to the theory!
