PATCH NOTES FOR FORTNITE UPDATE 18.10, DOWNTIME, CHUG SPASH, NEW CUBE AT STEAMY, AND MORE
Fans of Fortnite can now download a new update, but they’ll have to endure hours of server outage to enjoy the advantages.
On consoles and PC, Fortnite update 18.10 is now available.
Epic Games has pulled Fortnite offline for server maintenance as part of the new update. The outage is expected to occur from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. BST.
According to an Epic article, “we’re starting to disable matchmaking in preparation for the v18.10 release, with server downtime beginning soon.”
“When the outage is over, we’ll let you know!”
Epic Games is getting set to release a new update for Fortnite on the PS5, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Android, and Nintendo Switch.
The release date for Fortnite update 18.10 is September 28 at 9 a.m. BST.
However, because it is a numbered update, version 18.10 will be accompanied by a period of server downtime.
At roughly 8.30 a.m. BST, services will begin to be turned off, before being completely offline at 9 a.m. Although there is no formal downtime plan, the game normally returns online within a few hours.
The Chug Splash recovery item has been added to the new download, according to the patch notes for update 18.10. The new item restores 20 health while also increasing speed.
An Epic post reads, “Bring the heat.” “The v18.10 upgrade will be available on September 28. Matchmaking will be disabled 30 minutes before the downtime begins at about 4:00 a.m. ET.” Epic has stated that the new update will be larger for Xbox and Nintendo Switch systems.
According to some fans, the upcoming update will include a new POI on the map, as well as possibly another archival weapon for players to fund.
