New Fortnite Patch Due Out Today Has Been Delayed
The good news is you can play Teams of 20 for longer.
Fortnite's newest patch has been delayed. Update 3.3 was supposed to go live on March 14, but developer Epic ran into an unspecified "issue," so the studio is delaying the patch until it can fix it. Epic added that it is currently working on a solution and will announce more details on its progress as information becomes available. [Update: After the delay, patch 3.3 is now available.]
There is no word about everything in the 3.3 update, but the developer did tease that players will be able to come across a Supply Llama in Battle Royale. The update may also include remote explosives, a newly revealed item that players will be able to detonate from a distance.
We discovered an issue that will prevent us from releasing v3.3 tomorrow, March 14. We’re working on solving that problem now and will update you once we know more.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) March 14, 2018
While the update's delay is a bummer, it also means you have more time to play the limited-time Teams of 20 mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The mode is scheduled to be removed from the game with the 3.3 update, so with the patch delayed, that means you can play the mode for even longer.
Teams of 20 has been available in Fortnite since earlier this month. The mode pits five teams against each other, with each team containing 20 players. You can watch a trailer for the mode in the video embed above.
Developer Epic releases limited-time modes for Fortnite on a semi-regular basis. One of the previous ones was called Solid Gold, which made every item in the game Legendary. We can only imagine what limited-time mode will come next.
Epic recently announced it is bringing Fortnite: Battle Royale to mobile. Those with iOS devices can now sign up for a chance to take part in an exclusive invite event. If you're curious to see how the game runs on mobile, you can check out the first gameplay footage of Fortnite on iOS here.
