Fortnite fans can download update 9.10 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.
Unfortunately, however, fans won’t get the benefit of the update until downtime has ended.
*Fortnite 9.10 patch notes UPDATE: Fortnite x Jordan, Hang Time, Hot Spots, Loot Carriers*
And it looks like server maintenance could last longer than usual according to an Epic tweet.
Warning fans of this morning’s (May 22) server maintenance, Epic Games said to expect “extended downtime”.
“Get ready to drop in,” reads the Epic tweet.
“Update 9.10 releases tomorrow, May 22. Downtime begins at 4 AM ET(0800UTC). There will be extended downtime for this release.”
Hopefully it won’t have too big an impact on the maintenance schedule, but expect the game to be offline until at least 11am BST.
When it returns, fans will be able to get stuck into update 9.10.
According to the 9.10 patch notes, the new Fortnite update adds Hot Spots to the game.
These are described as “randomly selected locations on the map that have a high loot rate with an increase of Supply Drops”.
The Hot Spots contain Loot Carriers, which can be shot down for higher quality weapons.
As previously reported, the update also makes big changes to the game’s audio.
Fortnite developer Epic Games has also shed some more light on the Fortnite X Jordan crossover.
“Show off your moves in the New York City inspired, Downtown Drop LTM by Jordan featuring Creative artists NotNellaf & Tollmolia,” Epic explains. “Launch off massive jumps, grind down city streets and collect coins to win!”
“Score big when you cop the Hang Time Bundle. Get the Grind Outfit, Clutch Outfit, and a challenge pack unique to the set.”
You’ll be able to check it out for yourself when the game comes back online.
