We’re not expecting much in the way of big updates this time around, but there will be a number of bug fixes Epic will likely work through, which will be confirmed on their Trello board.
Fortnite Update v22.10 – what’s in it?
The pause of the game is a bit annoying – however the people at Epic are bringing an Epic update for fans who enjoy Fortnite!
Including new weapon upgrades and consumables – this update looks to add to the already plethora of content fleshed out onto Fortnite
How long is it down for?
We do not know yet how long the game will be down for, but we expect it could well be a couple of hours. This would mean the v22.10 update could be live from around 10am UTC.
As per usual, Fortnite Status will let the community know when it’s ended.
