When does Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 4 start? Release date, collaborations, articles and more

Fortnite's latest season has just begun, but players are already looking ahead to what the future holds.

Building on the recent record-breaking success of Fortnite OG, which saw the return of the classic Chapter 1 map from 2018, the game's next season is set to be an epic throwback.

Here's what we know about Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 4, including release date and new features.

When is Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 4 released?

Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 4 is scheduled to release on August 16, 2024, following the conclusion of the current Nitro-fueled Season 3 on the same date.

What is the theme of the new season?

Rumor has it that Chapter 5, Season 4 will feature Marvel's superheroes returning to the game two years after their last crossover.

This time, according to leaks and rumors, trash-talking buddies Deadpool and Wolverine might make an appearance, coinciding with the release of their new movie of the same name ahead of the new season.

Excitingly, players may be able to use Wolverine's claws as a melee weapon in the game for the first time since 2020.

The possibility of a Marvel season was originally revealed in a leaked Fortnite roadmap earlier this year, which included a grainy image of Dr. Doom. One of the first Marvel supervillains, Dr. Doom (real name Victor Von Doom) is an archenemy of Marvel's first family, the Fantastic Four, who return to the big screen in July 2025.

In keeping with the current trend of revisiting Fortnite's past, the next season may see a revival of classic weapons, items, and locations from previous seasons, but specific details on this are still unknown.

What about new weapons?

A few new weapons and items have leaked for Season 4 so far, such as the Striker Burst Rifle V2 and the Super LaunchPad. Other possible additions include the Dual SMG and a new Heavy Sniper variant.

Although Epic Games hasn't officially revealed much about the next season, more information and teasers are expected to surface closer to the August 16 release date. The theme, Battle Pass content, and additional gameplay changes will likely be revealed then.
