When does Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 start?

The chapters are the big overarching parts of the storyline.
We’re currently in Chapter 2, which hasn’t ran out of steam yet.
These chapters are then split up into smaller seasons, which typically have their own stories, items and map changes.
Season 6 began on Tuesday, March 16 – so it’s live right now.

Fortnite Season 6 update patch notes – what’s new?
The new season is finally here, and there’s loads of fresh content to check out.
“When you first launch into the new season, you’ll play through the conclusion of Agent Jones’ mission in the Zero Crisis Finale,” Epic Games explained.
“The aftermath of this event is sure to shape reality as we know it.
“Don’t worry, the Zero Crisis Finale is a solo experience and you can play through it whenever you first log in during the season.
“Want to watch it online first? We’ll share details soon on how you can watch the global premiere with everyone, beginning with our most ambitious story cinematic yet!”
In the finale, Agent Jones and the Foundation have sealed the Zero Point in a stone tower.

But as it was being contained, a mysterious pulse travelled across the island, erasing advanced technology and reshaping Fortnite.
You’ll find classic locations reimagined in a primal style.
New weapons (including the flame and metal bow) can be found or crafted.
Fresh wildlife roams the island, and can even be tamed. Look out for chickens, boar and even wolves.
Epic Games even teased: “And though wolves may roam, the most fearsome predators have yet to hatch.”
You’ll be able to find bunker chests around the island with rare and legendary weapons.
And there’s even a tie-in with Brazil footie legend Neymar Jr., who features in new Battle Pass content.
