In Fortnite, the servers are going down on all platforms today, September 26th (PC, Mac, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, Android). The maintenance work will be used to load update 26.20 onto the servers.
What’s happening in Fortnite today? Epic Games is shutting down the Chapter 4 Season 4 servers to upload a new update. According to leakers, this update will unlock new skins in the shop as well as the secret skin from Season 4.
If you missed the trailer for Chapter 4 Season 4, here is the video:
Fortnite: Server Down – When and how long are they offline?
This is the downtime in the morning: According to Epic Games, the servers are expected to shut down at 9:00 a.m. German time. Matchmaking is deactivated 30 minutes beforehand, so you can no longer search for new rounds after 8:30 a.m.
When can you play again? This is a major update. It is therefore likely that Epic Games could restart the servers at 11:00 a.m. or as late as 1:00 p.m. But this has not been confirmed.
When are the patch notes coming? Epic Games usually publishes a short list of patch notes on their website after the update. If that happens, we will list them here briefly and clearly.
What content could appear with Update 26.20?
Epic Games reveals little to no new information about upcoming content before a new update. However, trustworthy leakers like Shiina have been keeping an eye on the data hidden from regular users for a long time and know roughly what to expect this time. You can expect the following things:
- Leaked cosmetic items
- Ahsoka set of cosmetic items
- New shop tabs
- October Crew Pack
- Level Up Quest Pack
- Deku Smash enters the vault
- New extensions of reality
- New collaborations?
- Old Star Wars items?
- 6th birthday items in the safe
- UEFN playtest groups
- And more!
This time it is more of a major maintenance, which could most likely bring one or two new skins to the shop.
