Chapter 4 Season OG is live now in Fortnite! A brand new Fortnite update today (3rd November) – v27.00 – has added the hotly anticipated new season into the game, bringing back a version of the game’s original map lifted from Chapter 1 Season 5 along with a whole host of returning weapons and more.


The new OG Pass and OG Shop have also been (re?) introduced, bringing new mashups of classic skins, returning skins that you know and love from days gone by, and more nostalgia-inducing treats.

Over the next few weeks, Epic Games is promising weekly updates that jump the game forward in time by a whole season, unvaulting more classic battle royale action that has otherwise been lost to time up to Season X.
