The first major update of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is finally here, following some short downtime. Fortnite Update 19.01 dropped a few weeks ago and ended up being quite a surprise with the content it added. It brought us Winterfest 2021 and the reveal of the Spider-Man: No Way Home skins. The Update 19.10 is what we're excited about now and we have the details as they break below.

Latest - Fortnite Update 19.10 Live Now

The server downtime is now over and the Fortnite 19.10 update is now live for you to jump into.

New NPCs Coming?

It looks like Haven and Ragsy could be coming to The Flipside in Fortnite Update 19.10. The two brand new NPCs have been leaked as well as the items that they will sell.

Hotfix adds Weather & Flare Gun

We thought that Fortnite Update 19.10 would add weather effects like the tornado and storm but this ended up coming a week early via the January 11 hotfix.

The Flare Gun was also added and this now means we're waiting one more week for the first major update of Chapter 3.

What to Expect?

It's actually quite hard to know what Fortnite Update 19.10 will bring us so soon after another big update. The early season updates tend to lean more towards optimization, tweaks and balancing issues rather than content dumps.

We did expect to see something uploaded in relation to a Christmas Day event. There is also the possibility that we get The Matrix skins decrypted and sneak a closer look at the rumoured Neo & Trinity skins. Along the same lines, the Boba Fett content that is set to go live on December 24/25 would also be revealed. It turns out that most of this content was added as part of 19.01/

Beyond this, we don't expect a huge amount to come out of this particular Fortnite Update. Perhaps now that we're in a new year and beyond, things will get a lot spicier! That being said, Epic could have something up their sleeve that even the leakers don't know about, so keep your eyes peeled and we'll have all the updates right here for you!
