The Fortnite servers are down and preparing for the start of Season 7. How long the downtime will last and how big the update is, we'll show you below!

Fortnite Season 7 is coming soon, and Epic Games has confirmed that it could take several hours for maintenance to be done and the downtime to end. Yes, we know that the hype is high, there are leaks about Rick and Morty in Fortnite and you want to start playing right away. Still, as always, players won't be able to access Fortnite's core features during this time, let alone get into the game.

How Long Are the Fortnite Servers Down?

The Fortnite servers could be down for a maximum of four hours, which would mean that Fortnite Season 7 will be playable around 11 am. However, you should know that this is pure speculation, and it has not been confirmed when exactly you can jump back into the game.

There was also no mention of a new Fortnite event waiting for players when the Season 7 patch was downloaded. There's also a brand new Fortnite trailer to watch alongside a new Fortnite teaser. Don't worry, we won't keep you in suspense. You can check it out here:

How Big Is the Fortnite Season 7 Update?
