Update 2: After the delay, Epic Games has now released Fortnite update 3.3 on all platforms. It adds remote explosives, Supply Llamas, and other changes to Battle Royale, along with new Save the World content.
Update: The 3.3 update has been delayed due to an issue. No new release date has been announced. The original story is below.
A new update is on the way very soon for Fortnite. On the game's official Twitter account, developer Epic announced it will deploy patch 3.3 tomorrow, March 14, which will introduce new content for both the free-to-play Battle Royale and the paid early access Save the World modes.
Epic hasn't detailed exactly what will be available in the new update, but the developer did tease that players will be able to come across a Supply Llama in Battle Royale, which will aid them by dropping helpful items when found. The update may also include remote explosives, a newly revealed item that players will be able to detonate from a distance.
Find a Supply Llama in BR or explore a new quest line in StW! Try these new things tomorrow, March 14, when v3.3 releases. Expect an exact time soon.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) March 13, 2018
One thing we likely won't see in update 3.3, however, are jetpacks. The items were originally slated to arrive in Battle Royale last month; however, Epic ultimately delayed them due to a "last minute design issue" that the developer discovered when playtesting the jetpacks internally. There is still no word as of yet about when the jetpack will be added to Battle Royale, but Epic has introduced other items in the meantime, such as the hunting rifle.

Epic says it will reveal exact timing details for the new Fortnite patch "soon." Until then, players still have a little more time to take part in Battle Royale's latest limited-time mode, Teams of 20. Like a typical match, the mode features 100 players, except this time they're divided up into five teams of 20.
