The 20.10 update is nearly here for Fortnite, and this patch will add a ton of new content to the already jam-packed Chapter 3 Season 2. This season features an all-out war between the IO and The Seven, bringing new characters like Doctor Strange and The Prowler to the island. There’s also a new permanent Zero Build mode that removes the game’s defining feature, letting the new parkour abilities take center stage.

While there’s already a lot in this season, the v20.10 update will add even more quests, weapons, and items to the game. Here’s everything new with the v20.10 update in Fortnite.

When Does Fortnite 20.10 Release?

The v20.10 update for Fortnite will be released on Tuesday, April 5. While Epic Games has not officially confirmed the exact release time just yet, this update will most likely follow a similar pattern to previous patches. That means that downtime should start at roughly 1:00 AM PST/4:00 AM ET and last for a few hours with servers coming back online early in the morning.

Fortnite v20.10 Leaks

This update will add all sorts of new content to the game, just like previous major patches. An Assassin’s Creed collaboration has been leaked, so now the game will be getting two representatives from the series. Ezio Auditore will be joined by Eivor Varinsdottir from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and their skins are expected to hit the Item Shop on April 8.

This update will also bring new quests and challenges to the game, continuing the storyline for the season. The territory lines for the IO and The Seven are expected to shift with this update, so some areas may look and feel a bit different going forward.

Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
