Fortnite Servers Will Go Down Soon But Don’t Worry, It Is For A Good Reason
Epic Games has announced a scheduled downtime for Fortnite ahead of the patch 7.40 that will be available tomorrow. Here’s why this is not a bad thing.
Fortnite is ending its last Season with a bang. You can still complete the weekly challenges for the final week of Fortnite Season 7 before it is taken offline so don’t waste any time.
Fortnite is getting a new patch version 7.40 in time for this update. The downtime will begin before the patch is deployed and since every major update before the beginning of a season completely revamps the map, the same should be expected here.
When Will Fortnite Patch 7.40 Release?
Downtime begins February 13 at 4 AM ET (0900 UTC) according to the official social media accounts for the game. The patch will be released once the downtime is over.
What Is Included in Fortnite Patch 7.40?
We don’t know for now since Epic Games hasn’t shared any changes and there are no leaks about the upcoming content so far. We do have an idea of some of the adjustments that are being made in the game.
- Planes will no longer be able to smash through structures
- Zipline interact prompt added, and using a Zipline will grant fall damage immunity
- Hand Cannon structure damage reduced from 150 to 100
- Turbo Build delay decreased from 0.15s to 0.05s
- Rocket Launcher reload time increased from 2.52s to 3.24s
- Added the ability to crouch while in Edit Mode
As it is the case with almost every previous Fortnite update, you can expect to see it go live simultaneously on all platforms. This covers the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and any Android or iOS device that has the hardware necessary to run the game.
