Epic Games is showcasing the reveal trailer on the evening of August 26--you can check the video out once it's live right here. Epic Games will take Fortnite servers down to prepare for the new season at 2 AM ET / 7 AM BST (11 PM PT on August 26), with Fortnite version 14.00 and a whole new batch of content coming once its done a few hours later. It looks like we'll get to watch the trailer just in time to wait for the game to update overnight. Following the fallout of Epic's legal clash with Apple, iOS users will not be able to play in Season 4. Players on both MacOS devices and iPhones will be left behind in the 13.40 version of the game, according to an official statement from Epic.
Fortnite developer Epic Games has unleashed update 14.00 for Chapter 2, Season 4 of Battle Royale. Available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android (sort of), the new Fortnite update coincides with the release of a brand new Marvel-themed Battle Pass. Fortnite developer Epic Games announced the news on Twitter, telling fans that Season 4 has an August 27 release date. "Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4 (v14.00) arrives August 27," reads an Epic tweet. Sadly, Epic's feud with Apple means that iOS users will be unable to update the game and enjoy the new season.
And this means that Epic Games will be taking game servers offline to perform maintenance and prepare for a season of content. This means downloading a large patch before gaining access to the new Battle Pass and whatever other big changes are being planned. Fortnite Season 4 is expected to run like most other major updates, although there will be one massive difference this time around. It will be the first Fortnite update in over a year that won't be available to gamers on iOS platforms. This means that if you play Fortnite Mobile using an Apple device, you're about to be left behind.
According to Epic Games, Fortnite servers are scheduled to go offline on Thursday, August 27, on PS4, Xbox, PC, Switch and Mobile. Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite server downtime and maintenance will begin at 7am, BST. After numerous leaks indicating it, Fortnite Season 4 will officially have a Marvel theme and with it comes some fan-favorites such as Thor, Wolverine, She-Hulk and many more. This is already a huge announcement in itself, but don't forget that this a whole new season meaning there will likely be a plethora of changes that come to the game. These days, the biggest updates Fortnite sees are at the start of new seasons, save for the Joy Ride update, so there's definitely a lot to look forward to here. Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 4 (v14.00) arrives August 27. As a result, Chapter 2 – Season 4 (v14.00) will not release on Apple devices on August 27. The writing was already on the wall, but Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite Season 4 will not be available on iOS devices. It doesn't sound like this will be solved any time soon, so iOS players will need another option to play to the game. We also have a lot of Marvel characters that have been revealed for the new season and there's a chance that not all of them will be fitting into the Battle Pass, so it'll be interesting to see who is put where.
