Fortnite update 12.21 PATCH NOTES – Server downtime, new items, leaks, changes and more | Gaming | Entertainment
Fortnite developer Epic Games is getting ready to release update 12.21 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.
The next Fortnite update will be available to download from 6am UK time on the morning of March 24.
Perhaps surprisingly given that it’s not a full update is that v12.21 will be accompanied by a period of server downtime.
The exact contents of the update remain a mystery, but it’s unlikely to contain too many new items or major map changes.
Express Online will update this article when skins, items and new content is leaked during the server downtime.
In the meantime, Fortnite fans can check out some of the early patch notes for the Battle Royale and Creative update.
According to the Fortnite Trello page, update 12.21 could address issues with Spy Games, style selections and the Harpoon Gun not catching loot.
Epic is also working on fixes for the Auto Pick Up not functioning properly, as well as the Deadpool Plunger not being visible on a certain aspect ratio.
