Fortnite developer Epic Games is getting ready to release a brand new update on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Android and Nintendo Switch.
Fortnite update 18.10 has a September 28 release date and a 9am BST launch time.
Unfortunately, however, as a numbered update, version 18.10 will coincide with a period of server downtime.
Services will begin to be taken off at around 8.30am BST, before going offline in full at 9am. There’s no official downtime schedule, although the game usually comes back online within a couple of hours.
According to the update 18.10 patch notes, the new download adds the Chug Splash recovery item. The new item heals 20 health, while also giving players a speed boost.
“Bring the heat,” reads an Epic post. “The v18.10 update is scheduled for release on September 28. Downtime will begin at approx. 04:00 AM ET, with matchmaking being disabled approx. 30 minutes before.”
Interestingly, Epic has confirmed that the new update will be bigger on Xbox devices and Nintendo Switch.
Some fans believe the new update will add a new POI to the map, and perhaps another archived weapon for players to fund.
