WWKS When Does Chapter 5 Of Fortnite Begin


“A New Beginning for Fortnite”

When does Fortnite Chapter 5 begin is an important question that players have about the battle royale, and it is about to be answered very soon. After a month of reminiscing about the good old days thanks to Fortnite Season OG, we’ll soon be venturing into uncharted territory once more. Epic has promised that “a new beginning for Fortnite” is on the way, and based on various leaks, it appears that some significant changes are on the way. If you’re wondering what Fortnite Chapter 5 might contain, here’s everything we know so far.

When will Fortnite Chapter 5 begin?

Following The Big Bang Fortnite live event on December 2, the Fortnite Chapter 5 release date has now been officially confirmed as Sunday, December 3, 2023. This is supported by information displayed on the Chapter 4 Season OG Pass, the Epic Games website, and the in-game message on the OG Pass screen, which states that it will end on December 2, 2023, at 10 pm ET. You can expect the Fortnite servers to be unavailable for an extended period of time after the live event concludes so that things can be prepared for the launch of the next chapter.

What will be the most significant changes in Fortnite Chapter 5?

At the time of writing, we don’t have official confirmation of what the most significant changes for Fortnite Chapter 5 will be, but Epic has teased that the upcoming event “marks a new beginning for Fortnite” and will “evolve all things as you know them,” implying that significant changes will be made.

According to a recent update on cosmetic gating from the Fortnite Team, this contentious feature will be mostly disabled beginning with Chapter 5, until a long-term solution is found. While cosmetics are being re-evaluated, only “a small number of existing cosmetics and less than ten Outfits will remain playable only in T-rated (or regionally equivalent rated) islands because of their obvious fear or violence elements,” which means that almost all of the restrictions will be lifted.

Lego character in Fortnite

We know that a massive Lego crossover is on the way thanks to the above leak posted by HYPEX on X. This will include playing as an actual Lego character with a variety of themed items, a building tool, a crafting mode, and much more.

  • Alice Cooper – Poison
  • Imagine Dragons – Thunder
  • Lady Gaga – Pokerface
  • Linkin Park – Numb
  • Toto – Africa
  • Fortnite Music Packs

Of course, being a new chapter means that several new gameplay mechanics will be introduced, as well as the usual Fortnite new weapons to get things started. When Fortnite Chapter 5 is released, expect a lot of big changes.

What is the price of the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 Battle Pass?

Fortnite is free to play, but purchasing the Battle Pass unlocks a slew of additional benefits. The Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 Battle Pass is expected to cost 950 V-Bucks, which is enough to buy the smallest V-Bucks bundle in the Fortnite store, which costs $8.99 / £6.99 (R170) for 1,000 V-Bucks.
