Fortnite patch v30.20.01 is on its way to the world’s most popular Battle Royale! Here’s the planned downtime and unofficial patch notes.

A new patch is coming to Fortnite. This naturally means that Fortnite servers should be unavailable for a short period of time. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, which is arriving in update v30.20.01.

Fortnite Patch v30.20.01: Downtime

Fortnite v30.20.01 update starts at the same time as Fortnite server downtime, on Thursday, June 27, 2024, at 4 a.m. ET. Servers are usually offline for up to 2 hours and 30 minutes. After that, you will be able to log into the game as usual.

Fortnite Update v30.20.01: Patch Notes

With every patch, new things are coming to Fortnite Island, and that includes Fortnite update v30.20.01. Although there are no official patch notes, leakers have, as always, found elements in the files that will be changed or added to the game with the new update. Here we have an overview for you.

Summer vacation and event

The big summer break at Epic Games begins on July 1 and ends on July 12. This also means that a summer event on the island is imminent, featuring summer challenges and unlockable cosmetics. Otherwise, don’t expect too much new stuff in the game during this time, as Epic tends to take it easy these days.

Pirates of the Caribbean Crossover

It is also possible that the first preparations for the big Pirates of the Caribbean crossover are being made. This will not only bring our favorite franchise characters as skins into the game, but also new items and a pirate-themed POI (Point of Interest). However, the collaboration itself is expected to appear in the game around July 19.

Fortnite Reload Duos

The new Reload mode has won the hearts of fans. Finally, we will be able to dive back onto the island with the old weapons in a small Fortnite map with classic and nostalgic POIs. With this patch, the new mode will also receive a Duos mode alongside Squad mode! Additionally, Epic has confirmed that it is working on a Trios mode for Fortnite Reload.

You can learn more about the bugs Epic has on its radar on the official Fortnite Trello board. We can assume that at least some of them will be fixed.
