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.

Of course, Epic is fighting its own battle against the superpowers of Apple and Google while Season 4 releases. As yet, it's unclear whether Season 4 will be available on Apple devices or on Google Store, but all indications are that it will continue to be unavailable. This means to play Season 4 or download any updates, you will need to play on PC, consoles, or download via the Samsung or Epic Stores for Android. Finally, you won't have to wait long to hear about where Fall Guys is going, with details of Season 2 being revealed tomorrow. Fortnite downtime announced for Season 4 update Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is launching today, August 27, across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Mobile.

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.

The latest from Epic Games on the subject explains: "Apple is blocking Fortnite updates and new installs on the App Store, and has said they will terminate our ability to develop Fortnite for Apple devices. As a result, Fortnite's newly released Chapter 2 - Season 4 update (v14.00), will not release on iOS and macOS on August 27. "If you still want to play Fortnite on Android, you can access the latest version of Fortnite from the Epic Games App for Android on Fortnite.com/Android or the Samsung Galaxy Store." For everyone else, there is only a short amount of time before the big release lands on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Mobile. The only downside with today's update is that it means the game servers could be unavailable for several hours. The good news is that we know what time Fortnite downtime will be starting, and a rough outline for how long it might last.

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.
