https //status.epicgames.com : New Fortnite Update Today
The latest new Fortnite update, v17.00, also known as the Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 update, has been released by Epic Games.
The premiere of Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 is less than 24 hours away. All three teaser photographs have been shared on social media, and each one has three different subtitles that describe each object in the teaser.
At least two significant partnerships have already been announced by the teasers. A Superman Fortnite skin is almost certain, and a Rick and Morty x Fortnite partnership has just been announced. Teaser 3 included the butter robot, and the teaser was shared by the official Rick & Morty Twitter account.
Epic Games has revealed that the latest Fortnite update, v17.00, aka Fortnite season 7, will cause a server outage today. Everything you need to know is right here.
17.00 Fortnite Severe Downtime & Status Update
Epic Games confirmed that the Fortnite servers will go down at 2 a.m. ET in a post on the official Fortnite Status Twitter account (6 AM UTC). We don’t know when the Fortnite servers will be back online after scheduled maintenance for the 17.00 Fortnite season 7 update, but expect at least two hours of downtime.

The patch download size for the v17.00 Fortnite update will be larger than the typical bi-weekly updates on all platforms, including PC, PS4|5, and Xbox, as it is with the introduction of all new seasons of Fortnite. When the official download file size is released, we’ll let you know. Here’s what the Fortnite Status account had to say:
Notes on the Initial Patch
With a new season comes a new battle pass, map changes, weapon additions and removals, new NPCs, and so on. Epic Games, on the other hand, has provided us with some Fortnite patch notes for the latest v17.00 Fortnite update.
The Fortnite Status account responded to the tweet above by stating that they would be introducing the opportunity to cancel your shakedown of an opponent. In addition, pressing reload or the same button you used to pick up the opponent will dump them in the middle of a shaking.
Apart than that, we don’t have much else, but we’ll be providing our own unofficial Fortnite patch notes as soon as we can, as Epic Games has confirmed that no official Fortnite patch notes will be released for the forthcoming Fortnite update.
Leaks in Fortnite
Epic Games will be adding a tonne of new stuff to the files, as with any large new Fortnite upgrades. Expect to see challenges, as well as forthcoming cosmetics, new weaponry, and more, leaked. Before the Fortnite servers come back online after scheduled maintenance, we’ll most certainly see new weapons and map updates revealed.
