Important times for the server downs today in Fortnite – When and how long is it offline?
This is the downtime in the morning: The servers are expected to be shut down at 10:00 AM CET to install update 20:30. Matchmaking is already disabled 30 minutes beforehand, so you won’t be able to search for new rounds after 09:30.
When can you play again? During such maintenance work, the servers are usually offline for several hours and playing is then no longer possible. The downtime is expected to last between 30 minutes and 2 hours. The updates of the past few weeks have shown that.
Such maintenance work can always lead to technical problems, bugs and delays. If such complications should arise, we will report them here immediately.
When are the patch notes coming? Epic Games has been releasing little to no patch notes for a long time. However, members of the community usually search and find the changes quickly. However, if there are still important changes, we will also add this article to you.
What new content does update 20.30 bring?
What’s new for Battle Royale mode? There are no concrete statements from Epic Games about the content of Patch 20.30. But leaks and dataminers have often proven to be reliable sources in the past. You can expect these changes:
More territorial battles against IO
The Seven are still fighting the IO. There are still three major locations to be conquered before Sloane and her squad can be brought to their knees. The POIs are:
- Tilted Towers
- Rocky Reels
- Commando Cavern
Sloane won’t go down without a fight though, so get ready, hop on the battle buses and roll over your opponents.
In addition to new battlegrounds, players can expect new skins or crossovers, possible weapon tuning, and other map changes on the new map. We will update this post as soon as Epic release the official patch notes.
