The final teaser for Season 4 of Fortnite was just released on the official twitter account for the game and was tagged with the phrase "Brace for impact". Just how long the downtime will last is anyone's guess. Prepare yourselves for superhero antics as you enter the courageous, newly destroyed world! Now, it comes out to confirm one of the most anticipated news that players have been waiting for months: The #release date of Season 4 [VIDEO] for #Fortnite Battle Royale.

The countdown has begun for the start of the fourth season in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and the conspiracy theories - both in the game and out - have started speculating about what will be on offer for the world's most popular and talked about game. Now, the company has made a decision to end this and reveal when the arrival of this new content will be. Epic Games confirmed today that Season 4 of its Fortnite add-on content begins May 1, and that means Fortnite will have to go offline for a period overnight.

Based on the times it would seem that Season 3 ends at 4AM ET, which for anyone in the United Kingdom is 9am BST.

While the artwork also featured what looked the outline of a meteor strike, hinting that the much rumoured comet was coming in Fortnite season 4. Did you meet the goals you had planned for Season 3?
