The end of Fortnite OG is almost near, but a completely new experience is on the way. Despite the fact that the Chapter 1 throwback has garnered massive crowds, the game’s impending significant update promises to usher gamers into the next generation. Today, ESN24 offers a Fortnite Chapter 5 countdown and a preview of what to expect following the highly anticipated “The Big Bang” event.
When is Fortnite’s The Big Bang event?

Check out this entire write-up of the event and the important specifics for more information and how to attend. It promises an Eminem concert, among other things.
What date and time will Fortnite Chapter 5 begin?
A number of Fortnite leakers have verified that Chapter 5 will be released on December 3. That means the game will go into a hiatus following The Big Bang event, and then the Fortnite Chapter 5 countdown will begin. While it’s almost certain that the new season will begin on December 3, the exact date is unknown.
However, if previous seasons provide any indicator, Fortnite may resume play around 8 a.m. ET on Sunday, December 3. We hope to learn the exact launch time in the coming days, so check back for an updated report.
