We're expecting Fortnite Update 19.00 to bring a ton of new content especially given that it's kickstarting a brand new chapter. There will be a brand new map, loot pool, Battle Pass and much, much more.

Beyond the standard content additions that you would expect with a brand new chapter, we could also see files uploaded for this years Winterfest event. While the festivities may not kick off for a few weeks, all of the relevant files could be added in 19.00.

finally, it's also likely that we'll learn more about the upcoming Matrix crossover that's expected to bring us Neo and Trinity skins. An 'Unreal 5 Experience' has been announced for sometime in the month of December as we expect the Fortnite crossover to go live around the same time. The movie is due for release on 22 December.
