Long-time fans of Epic’s battle royale should rejoice. Chapter 4 Season 5 (aka Chapter 1 Season 5) is just around the corner. With it comes a throwback to the game’s early years, complete with map changes and more. Here’s what we know about the Fortnite OG start and end times.

When Does Fortnite OG Chapter 4 Season 5 Start?

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5 is launching with the Chapter 1 map this week. The current Season 4 is scheduled to end at 2 a.m. EST/11 p.m. PST. If the update follows the typical downtime schedule, we can anticipate OG Chapter 1 to go live sometime around 7 a.m. EST/4 a.m. PT on November 3. However, this is an unconfirmed start time, so we can expect to see live updates from Epic Games on Friday.

When Does Fortnite OG Chapter 4 Season 5 End?

Chapter 4 Season 5 will stay live throughout the month of November and will end on December 3, 2023. So, you’ll most likely lose access to the Fortnite OG Chapter 1 map at this time. We don’t have a confirmed end yet, but we anticipate it to conclude around the usual time of 2 a.m. EST/11 p.m. PST on December 3.

Seasons typically last 10-12 weeks, so this OG Season is significantly shorter, lasting only four weeks. Thankfully, the supposed structure of Chapter 1 will feature constant map rotations, so I’m confident the month will be jam-packed with good times.

What’s After Fortnite OG?

It will be tough to beat the nostalgic hype of Fortnite OG’s return. However, Epic Games knows they’ve got all eyes on them this season, so I’m sure they’ll deliver something special. Once OG ends, we can expect a Chapter 5 update with a new map. We’ll need to keep our eyes glued to Epic socials (and perhaps those of leakers) to find out what’s coming next.

Well, that’s all there is to know about the Fortnite OG Chapter 1 start and end times for Chapter 4 Season 5. Stay tuned with us at our guides hub here for all there is to know for this throwback to the past.
