In Fortnite, the servers are going down on all platforms today, November 21st (PC, Mac, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, Android). The maintenance work was used to load the update 27.11 onto the servers.
What’s happening in Fortnite today? Epic Games is shutting down the Chapter 4 Season 5 servers to upload a new update. According to leakers, this update will bring new content from the OG universe and provide data for the upcoming live event.
If you missed the trailer for Chapter 4 Season 5, 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 minor update. It is therefore likely that Epic Games could restart the servers at 10:00 a.m. or as late as 11:00 a.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 27.11?
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 data hidden from regular users for a long time and know roughly what to expect this time. You can expect the following things:
- Things from Season X
- Added shop tabs
- Maybe data about the upcoming 5th chapter
- And more!
This time it is more of a minor maintenance, which could very likely add some missing data about the upcoming live event.
