Update 3.18 has arrived for Fortnite, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

If you have the PS4 version of the game, the update number is 3.18 and the file size is 4.37 GB. The version number for the patch is 01.000.029 if you own the game on PS5. Officially, this update is known as patch Chapter 2 Season 7 (v17.00).

As this is adding a new season to the update, the patch size will be bigger than most. Make sure you have enough space on your hard drive before you download and install this update.

Only bug fixes have been announced for the update so far. More content will be announced once the update is rolled out to more people later today.
