The delayed v7.40 update has finally been released and here are the leaked Fortnite skins and other cosmetics found in the files.
It was first announced in the official French Fortnite blog that the v7.40 update would be taking place on Tuesday 12th February, but this was not the case. The official Fortnite account had then announced that the update would take place on Wednesday 13th February at 4AM ET(0900 UTC), however due to an issue that was discovered in the patch, it was further delayed.
Due to a last minute issue we've discovered within the v7.40 release, the update will be delayed.
We’ll give you an exact time when we lock it down.
