The OG Fortnite will come back very soon, Epic Games recently confirmed. After weeks of teasing the Chapter 1 return, the company finally confirmed it. Considering that the first chapter hasn’t been available for more than four years, many players are excited to play it once again.
The original chapter of Fortnite is set to return in Chapter 4 – Season 5. If the leaks turn out to be true, this will be the shortest season of the videogame, as it will last for only a month.

This is a perfect opportunity to allow new players to see what the original Fortnite looked like. In addition, many veteran players look forward to reliving Fortnite’s old glory.
Epic Games confirmed the Chapter 1 release date on X (formerly known as Twitter), while also revealing a few other details. The company clarified that some new movement mechanics, such as sprinting and mantling, will stay in the game.
The Fortnite creator also posted a video showing off some old clips from Chapter 1 – Season 5. At the moment, we don’t have more information regarding the new season. However, we expect Epic Games to keep the Zero Build mode as well, considering it’s one of the most popular modes.
The OG Fortnite will be playable for at least a month. According to reputable leakers, the season will end in early December, and Chapter 5 will begin after it. Furthermore, the next Fortnite season will have multiple Chapter 1 seasons and will end with another massive event, similar to the black hole event in October 2019.
