We’re days away from the release of Fortnite’s 21.00 update and with it will come a whole new season of content!

Very few leaks have been made about the update – so far – which means we’re in uncharted territory.

Here’s a rundown of everything we know so far about Fortnite’s 21.00 update!

LATEST – Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Item Shop

Good morning! To celebrate the launch of Kenobi on Disney+, a purchasable gift The Obi-Wan Kenobi set is now available in the Item Shop. For 2,200 Vbucks you can get the full set including a skin, backpack, pickaxe, glider, emote, and loading screen.

Based on the details here, we can expect Fortnite update 21.00 to start around 10:00 PM BST / 5:00 PM EST / 2:00 PM PST Saturday, June 4.

Fortnite update 21.00 release date and time

As with any new season, the exact start date and time can be a bit difficult to determine. We know Season 2 will end with an event, but Season 3 could start anytime after that.

Our current estimates predict that once the event ends on Friday June 3, there will be a downtime – for Fortnite update 21.00 to take place – that will last until the morning of Saturday June 4.

Once this downtime is over, Season 3 should begin. Again, this is just speculation, but we should find out more when we have an idea of ​​when the event is due to take place.

What to expect

Season 3 is expected to bring us a brand new Battle Pass along with map changes and story progression. We don’t expect any drastic changes on the level of Season 1, but there could be a lot to take in when Fortnite Update 21.00 is said and done.

Beyond the obvious, due to very few leaks through the usual sources, it’s hard to say exactly what Season 3 should bring. dark Vador could title the Battle Pass but that would break with the recent Marvel theme (though still in the Disney family).
