Today’s Fortnite downtime: How long will the Fortnite servers be down after the 18.10 update?
Today is the scheduled downtime for Fortnite, and Epic Games has warned that update 18.10 will be larger than previous patches.
Epic Games has guaranteed that a large fix will be available to download when game maintenance is done later today.
Fortnite update 18.10 is out today, and it’s shaping up to be one of the most major Season 8 patches yet.
As part of its regular statement, Epic Games warned that today’s patch will be larger on some platforms before shutting down servers.
The Fortnite support team has stated that this week’s update will be substantial for those playing on Xbox and Nintendo consoles, despite just providing a piece of information about what will be included.
They’ve also promised that the next patch would “bring the heat,” implying that a new item or map update is in the works.
The new Chug Splash recovery item is set to launch early in Season 8, and it will allow players to heal 20 health while also increasing their speed.
This is supposed to have a spicy tagline, which indicates it will most likely be released today as part of the new patch.
Important background modifications are also being done to ensure the XP system work properly, according to Epic Games.
“We’ve noted that XP acquired in Battle Royale this season isn’t where we’d like it to be and are making a range of adjustments,” reads an earlier post from the game’s support staff.
“We’ll give everyone an update on the modifications we’re making on September 28.” “Thank you for taking part in Season 8.” Today’s Fortnite server outage is slated to begin at 9:00 a.m. BST on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
This means that maintenance will begin at 4:00 a.m. EDT on the same day for players in the United States.
No one should be kept waiting for the servers to return because all platforms will be available at the same time.
Gamers have also been advised that 30 minutes before to the scheduled maintenance period, servers will begin to shut down.
While Epic Games has not stated when the servers will be back online, they have stated how long the outage may linger.
The Epic Games website has set a four-hour time limit for today’s maintenance, which means Fortnite servers may be down until 1 p.m. BST.
This is, however, the maximum. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
