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 a.m. CET to install update 20.20. 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 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 significant changes, we will also add this article.
What new content does Fortnite update 20.20 bring?
What’s new for Battle Royale mode? There are no concrete statements from Epic Games about the content of Patch 20.20. But leaks and dataminers have often proven to be reliable sources. But the changes are official:
New cosmetic items
Not much is known about today’s update. Shiina, a well-known Fortnite leaker, has already predicted that a new emote will appear in the data after the update. It’s a cake emote. Whether other skins and items will be released cannot be completely ruled out. So far, Epic has not released any new Easter items or skins, so update 20.20 could provide new content.
