Fortnite is temporarily offline today. Epic Games has announced scheduled maintenance work for the Battle Royale shooter.
In a recent Reddit post, the developers announced that the update 15.40 is due today. At the same time, they specify a time for the downtime: The maintenance work begins as usual at 10 a.m. Logins and joining the game are then initially no longer possible.
The matchmaking system will be switched off half an hour earlier: You will join your last game before the start of downtime at 9:30 a.m. How long Fortnite remains offline is not clear from the information.
As a rule, the downtimes at Fortnite are short-lived. At lunchtime, the servers should return and the battle royale shooter should be played as usual. During the maintenance work, the update 15.40 will be available for download, which will update Fortnite to the new version.
The patch notes are not yet available. However, Epic Games has already published a first preview of the new content in the aforementioned Reddit post.
Accordingly, a popular weapon returns from the safe with the patch. In addition, the two LTMs Air Royale and Floor is Lava will soon be available in Fortnite.
In addition, characters should offer more exotic weapons for sale, which should have a particular effect on the squad gameplay. In addition, the level of detail of individual objects should be optimized in the performance mode on the PC.
As soon as we have more information about today’s Fortnite Update 15.40, you will find out as usual on our website. Additional details should be available towards the end of the downtime.
