Could this be the final patch before the new season kicks off? Some news is starting to pile in ahead!
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 is almost up!
The new patch hopefully arrives tomorrow as well!
Let’s go over everything you need to know.
iFireMonkey tweeted out the early edition of the patch notes for this update.
Check them out below!
The JoyRide Update has officially been announced for Fortnite, and looks like it will bring cars to the game!
It will arrive 5 August, so be ready to start your engines!
You can look over the stats of the cars on their way to the game here:
It’ll be vehicle mayhem after patch day.
Mudflap is the name of the truck coming to the game in the next update!
Above, you can see @FortniteGame’s post on twitter showcasing artwork for the truck!
We can expect this monstrosity to act as a sort of tank in the game, with lots of hit points.
Epic tends to release patches for Fortnite once every two weeks or so.
It appears they are taking a step back from patches this season, with only two so far; and not many queued up and ready to go.
So, with patch V13.40 in the works we can expect it to release sometime around August 4-11!
By now, most of you are well aware that Epic does not like to release patch notes for whatever reason.
Instead, we must rely on Epic Games creators to post the patch notes on Twitter the night before the update.
So, expect an array of patch notes from Twitter shortly before downtime begins.
According to Hypex, two new floppers are ‘upcoming’, but we haven’t seen them just yet.
The Mechanic Flopper and Battle Flopper could well be in the next patch. But what else could we end up seeing in terms of a more…practical item?
This season has been lacking in new weapons more so than compared to previous ones.
So, with a new patch in the works it is unknown if we are going to get any new weapons.
There is a chance we see the leaked ‘Dragon Shotgun’ that leaker HYPEX found in the files back in June.
As the water continues to drop after the massive flood event, old locations are being uncovered.
This will give players more landing spots in-game modes like Arena, making the start of the match, less hectic.
