The next new Fortnite update has been announced. V12.60 will be released tomorrow and here’s everything you need to know including the patch notes which we’ll update and when the Fortnite servers will go down for maintenance.
The last Fortnite update that was released was the v12.50 update which Epic released on the 28th April. Since then, we’ve only had a maintenance update that was released on the 7th May.
In the v12.50 update, Epic sent an email to everyone in the support-a-creator program outlining what would be coming in the update. The heavy sniper rifle was finally nerfed after players called for a nerf for months. Epic also added in Party Royale and held the premiere of the new mode a couple of weeks ago.
Epic have now announced that the next, new Fortnite update will be v12.60. Here’s what we know about the update.
Fortnite Server Downtime and when they’ll be back up
Prior to Fortnite chapter 2 season 2, Epic Games would release Fortnite updates at 8 AM or 9 AM GMT. With the release of season 2, Epic have changed up the release time of updates and they now release at 6 AM UTC (1 AM ET).
Tomorrow’s update is no different to the previous release times this season, and the update announcement states the Fortnite servers will be down for maintenance at 6 AM UTC. Here’s the announcement tweet below:
v12.60 is scheduled for Wednesday, May 20. Downtime will begin at 2 AM ET (0600 UTC).
