Here’s everything you need to know about the scheduled downtime for the Fortnite servers.

Epic Games have decided to skip a number in today’s Fortnite update. There was no v13.10 update released, but today’s update is v13.20. As usual, matchmaking was disabled 30 minutes prior to the servers going down, and the servers are currently down for maintenance.

Today’s update brings a brand new weapon to Fortnite Battle Royale, the flare gun. Not only that, it seems there’ll be an item that makes sidegrading weapons a lot easier. Epic have also teased a new “hero” skin that’ll be available in the item shop this week.

LEAK: Captain America Fortnite skin coming soon

Fortnite Servers Status

The Fortnite servers went down for scheduled maintenance at 7 AM BST. Epic usually provide a rough time of when to expect downtime for the update to end, however, for this update there is no estimate.
