Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 starts later today, bringing with it a new map, a new battle pass, new cosmetics, and new challenges.
However, this morning players attempting to log in are being met with a servers not responding message on the home screen.
Fortnite Chapter 3 concluded last night which saw the fabric of the world of Fortnite be ripped apart, bringing with it plenty of new characters that will now be usable as cosmetics in the new chapter of the game, including Doom Slayer and Geralt from The Witcher.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is now live.
However, as with the end of every Fortnite event, there has been significant downtime since the event concluded, which hasn’t let player into the game, and there’s been little indication from Epic when Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 will officially begin.

If you’re trying to log in to Fortnite and seeing the servers not responding messages, then the new chapter of the game, Chapter 4, hasn’t started yet.
Fortnite servers are expected to go up around 6 AM PT / 9 AM EST / 2 PM GMT. While Epic is yet to officially communicate when the game is going to be playable again, the above times are based on previously Fortnite events and when the game is likely to return to normal, however, this could change.
Epic has revealed some of the new weapons coming to the game, including the Ex-Caliber Rifle. “his powerful, semi-automatic rifle fires a ballistic blade at your enemies… that detonates mere moments later,” according to Epic.
The Thunder Shotgun, Maven Auto Shotgun, Red-Eye Assault Rifle and Twin Mag SMG will also be added to the game as part of this update.
