The premiere of Fortnite: Chapter 4: Season 1 will take place on Sunday, December 4, 2022. Eastern time zone participants can probably expect it to start in the wee hours of the morning, but the precise start time is still up in the air.
According to online rumors, the outage will last no more than 12 hours. The next chapter will begin at midnight Eastern Time, assuming the current schedule holds. A delay is possible if developers face problems in the final stages of development.
According to the most up-to-date entry on Epic Games’ blog, this is all the result of using Unreal Engine 5.1. Advanced features like Nanite, Lumen, virtual shadow maps and temporary Super Resolution are all standard. All versions of Fortnite can now download these patches. It’s available for play on the PS5, Xbox One X|S, PC, and the cloud.
Such intricate geometry is possible in Nanite, as seen in this image of a fortress perched on a hill. Modeling the bricks, stones, planks of wood, and wall trim of a building with millions of polygons in real-time can make the structure look more realistic and polished.
Nanite also crafted detailed environments, modeling each rock, flower, and blade of grass from scratch and using 300,000 polygons per tree. That’s why tropical islands in photographs always seem so lush and full of activity.
However, Lumen stands out due to its high-quality ray-traced reflections on glossy surfaces and water and its real-time global illumination at 60 fps. In this case, a definition would be very helpful. Observing the reactions of the building’s inhabitants and the structure itself is possible by experimenting with the lighting.
Because every single modeling brick, leaf, and feature can produce its own unique shadow, the term “Virtual Shadow Maps” has become common. As a result, the characters are less self-conscious about casting a positive light on themselves. As a result, hats and other dark clothing items can create ground shadows.
Players must accomplish tasks and earn in-game rewards quickly because each Battle Pass is timed. Thus, many players question when Fortnite Chapter 4 (Season 1) will end.
Before the season, dates take a lot of work to confirm. ShiinaBR, a popular Fortnite leaker, says Chapter 4 of Season 1 will expire on March 26. Zhao leaked the date. Season 1 lasts 16 weeks.
Immediately following the live event’s conclusion at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the trailer for Fortnite Season 1, Chapter 4, will air. This video, titled “A New Beginning,” will soon be released on YouTube. Although details are sketchy at best, this could signal the end of Reality Zero.
Possibly signalling the start of a new story arc, the leaked audio logs reveal that the Points of Interest from Chapter 3 of Season 4 have been relocated to another dimension. However, once the actual event begins, everyone involved will have a better idea of what’s going on.
