Fortnite Chapter 3 is about to start, but only after a period of prolonged server downtime.

Fortnite’s epic end-of-season event “The End” featured a performance by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The season ended with the island upside down to reveal a brand new map. Unfortunately, the appearance of a huge tidal wave means players will have to wait a little longer for the season to start.

To get everything ready for the start of Chapter 3, Epic has taken the game offline for server maintenance.

There is no official downtime schedule, although previous reports suggest the game will remain offline until at least December 6.

Other reports suggest Fortnite will be back online on December 7 at 9:00 AM GMT. Express Online will update this story with the latest developments.

In the meantime, anyone trying to connect will be greeted by the Fortnite loading screen and a message confirming that the game is connecting.

If you manage to log back in, you’ll see a character floating in the sea in the distance, next to the occasional floating box.

The new update should be available for download before Chapter 3, so expect more leaks to appear then.

As for the end of the season event, things went as shown in the trailer.

It all started with players battling large guardians and cube monsters, before a cutscene with The Rock and Prison Jones kicked in.

After blowing up the base and washing in the water, players saw the island flip over as the Cube Queen was destroyed.

After a brief glimpse of the new map, the tidal wave has wiped out players. The camera would then zoom out, and then the downtime started.

Needless to say, streamers will be broadcasting the whole thing. It’s similar to the Black Hole event, when the game was offline for days.

Based on previous leaks, the new season introduces Spider-Man as a playable character.

It is also possible that Prison Jones and The Foundation will be featured in the Battle Pass.

Other reports suggest that Epic Games will add saddles to the game, which will allow you to ride animals.

Neo from The Matrix and Boba Fett from Star Wars are both tipped to appear in the Item Shop, alongside a new Battle Pass with new rewards.

That’s on top of a redesigned HUD and menu screens, as well as a slew of in-game challenges.
