Epic Games have announced a brand new Fortnite update releasing on April 11th, 2023, 24.20 (3.87). Here are the early patch notes including information on server downtime.
Two weeks ago, Epic Games released the first major patch update for chapter 4 season 2. The release included challenges for the Spring Breakout event.
The event allows players to get their hands on limited-time Easter-themed cosmetics that can be obtained by completing a certain amount of challenges.
Rewards include a back bling, spray, loading screen, pickaxe, and glider. If you’ve not logged into Fortnite since 24.10, here’s a look at some of those free cosmetics:
Aside from the Spring Breakout challenges and rewards, there wasn’t too much other content that was added. The Easter Egg Launcher was unvaulted and new eggs were added to the game as floor loot.
Thankfully Epic Games have announced that the v24.20 (3.87) Fortnite update will be released today. Here is what we know so far about the upcoming release.
