New Fortnite Update Coming Soon, Here's When
A new update is inbound.
The next Fortnite update is coming soon. Developer Epic Games has confirmed that update 4.3 will be released on Wednesday, May 30 presumably for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile.
There will be some server downtime associated with the update, beginning at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET. However, Epic did not say how long the downtime will run for but we do know it will include quality-of-life improvements such as a one of which is challenge progress notification system. Once implemented, players will see messages pop up during matches as they complete objectives, making it much easier to know where they stand toward finishing a given challenge.
v4.3 releases tomorrow, May 30th, with downtime beginning at 4am ET (08:00 GMT).— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) May 29, 2018
The update is also likely to add thew newly announced Shopping Cart to Fortnite. This is a one- or two-person vehicle that we sure hope you can ride and drive. We'll know for sure, soon, it seems. Another new feature announced for Fortnite is a limited-time Playground mode, which features friendly fire and respawns.
One thing tomorrow's Fortnite update won't do is kick off the game's Season 4, Week 5 challenges, as those are now coming on Thursdays.
