Here’s when Fortnite‘s servers will go down for each time zone:
- UK time: August 1 at 9 am BST
- Eastern time zone: August 1 at 4 am EDT
- Central time zone: August 1 at 3 am CDT
- Mountain time zone: August 1 at 2 am MDT

However, Epic Games published a new trailer to build excitement for the tenth season – or Season X, as it’s been stylistically dubbed. Fortnite‘s world seems to be experiencing some time traveling shenanigans, with our hero moving through a wormhole and seeing iconography that spans the game’s two-year tenure. Some of the new additions to the battle royale game were discussed in Epic Games’ recent blog post too.
