Epic Games have announced the new Fortnite update which will be available today. Here’s everything you need to know including what time the update is and when the servers will go down.
Epic didn’t release too many Fortnite updates during the first two seasons of chapter 2. However, Epic returning to the bi-weekly major updates last season and were doing the same this season. However, there was no Fortnite update last week which means there’ll be almost three weeks between the last update and today’s new update.
The quality of the updates have been much better this season with more content including new locations including all the Marvel landmarks and the major Stark Industries named location.
We’ve also seen new Fortnite bosses added in the update with Doctor Doom being added at the start of the season followed by Iron Man and Wolverine in the v14.20 update. Today’s new Fortnite update will be v14.30 and here’s everything you need to know.

As is the norm, the Fortnite status Twitter account tweeted to announce the new Fortnite update. The v14.30 update will be released today, October 13th and the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance at 4 AM ET (8 AM UTC).
