As confirmed by the game's Twitter account, the Fortnite Season 4 release time is scheduled for tomorrow, May 1. Accompanying the release date announcement is a message: "Brace for impact!" This likely refers to the comet that appears to be heading straight for the Battle Royale map.

Fortnite Season 4 Release Time: Superhero Theme and Comet Destruction

Despite Fortnite Season 4 releasing tomorrow, Epic Games has been pretty tight-lipped about what exactly the new season will bring. From the handful of teasers we've been given, most players feel that there will be a superhero theme, which ties in nicely with the new Avengers movie, where superhero hype is at an all-time high. Then there's the comet, which the developers appear to have acknowledged through various little Easter eggs and the recent "brace for impact" message.

To find out exactly what Fortnite Season 4 will bring to the table, players will have to simply wait and see. During Season 3, the game got even bigger, with millions playing across all platforms, so you can expect Season 4 to be even more massive.
