Epic is getting ready to release another update for Fortnite. Patch v5.30 will be released tomorrow, August 23, for all platforms – PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and Mobile – and introduce another new article in Battle Royale mode. [ Update: The new patch is live and includes the Rift-to-Go and more.]
As usual, the update will be preceded by a maintenance round scheduled early in the morning at 1am / 4 o'clock in the morning / 9 o'clock in the morning BST. Epic has not estimated how long the maintenance will take, but during this time the servers are taken offline, so you will not be able to jump into Battle Royale matches until the maintenance time is up.
Epic does not have either. It has been confirmed which new item will be available as part of the 5.30 update, but Fortnite's In-Game New Updates Feed lists one named Rift-to-Go as "coming soon", hinting that it will be tomorrow growing arsenal of the game will be. His accompanying description reads, "A rip you have in your pocket! Teleport over your current location and slide down."
In the meantime, players only have a little more time to play Fortnite recently limited time modes, Soaring 50s and Sniper Shootout. Both will end on the 23rd of August and make this your last chance either to participate before leaving the rotation. "Soaring 50s" is a new version of the 50v50 mode with many more launch pads, boost pads and impulse grenades, while Sniper Shootout offers only one type of weapon: Sniper Rifles
While Fortnite's new update is very soon on the market Next Week's Weekly Challenges will arrive a little later than usual. Epic has announced on Twitter that the challenges of Week 7 will be held on Friday, August 24, as usual on Thursday. The developer did not explain the reason for this delay. Until then, you can find instructions for all available missions in our full Season 5 Challenge Guide.
