Let’s dive from the Battle Bus into Fortnite’s OG season.

What is Fortnite OG?

Fortnite OG was a limited-time season that revisited maps from several of Chapter One’s seasons. It started with Season Five and ended with Season X, taking long-time players on a nostalgia trip and introducing newer fans to how the game used to look.

As well as changing up the map, the Fortnite OG season brought back a bunch of old weapons, vehicles, and items to complete the experience. There was even a Battle Pass for this event, even though it was a bit shorter than your average Fortnite season.

When can I play Fortnite OG?

Fortnite’s OG season ran from November 3 to December 2, 2023. Each week the map changed to revisit a different era of Chapter One in this order:

  • November 3 – 9: Season Five
  • November 9 – 16: Season Six
  • November 16 – 23: Seasons Seven and Eight
  • November 23 – December 2: Seasons Nine and X

Fortnite OG ended on December 2, 2023.

When will Fortnite OG return?

Fortnite OG will return in 2024, though no set date has been specified just yet. The fact that it’s coming back is no surprise, as the return of the classic map was an enormous success. It could even end up being a yearly event across November and December, but expect more confirmation on precise timings in the near future.
