New Maintenance Patch released for Fortnite on Consoles, PC, and Mobile

Epic Games has just released a small Maintenance Patch for Fortnite and we have everything you need to know about why you need to download it and what it's going to do.

What does the new update do?

The new Fortnite Maintenance Patch update is going to tackle a couple of issues that might be affecting you. The update itself should address some stability issues and fix a bug that is stopping the Crew Protocol back bling from showing up in-game.

The tweet announcing the update - which you can find on FortniteStatus - reads as follows:

" We are deploying a maintenance patch on PC, Playstation consoles, Xbox consoles and Android to address stability issues and the Crew Protocol back bling not showing up on login. You will be able to download the patch before launching your game, no server downtime is required."

The stability issues don't appear to be Server-side, however - Epic Games has clarified that no Server Downtime is going to be needed for this minor Maintenance Patch.

You will, however, have to download the patch prior to booting up Fortnite again.

Epic Games has stated the following regarding Nintendo Switch title updates:
