Is Fortnite down? Server undergoes maintenance - here’s when ‘larger than normal’ 24.20 update goes live
and live on Freeview channel 276
Fortnite fans can expect a “larger than normal” game update following maintenance that will also bring a brand new crossover, Epic Games confirms. Servers are expected to go offline 30 minutes before an update so expect to get kicked out of any online games half an hour before then.
The Fortnite update 24.20 is the second major update of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Epic Games confirmed on Twitter the patch will go live today at 8am BST / 3am EDT / 12am PDT across all platforms.
Downtime typically lasts around four hours, so you can expect to jump back into the game at 12pm BST / 7am EDT / 4am PDT. The update file for the new patch should automatically download during this downtime, but if not you can manually download it.
Epic Games is yet to release any official patch notes for the new update. However, some leaked details say some of the issues that are listed as ‘fixed in the next game update’. Additionally, the update brings the Attack on Titan crossover with the highly anticipated Mikasa and Levi skins confirmed to appear in the item shop today.
