Fortnite fans, get ready for an epic update! The highly anticipated Fortnite update v24.40, which was initially scheduled for today, has been pushed back to tomorrow. Downtime is expected to begin at around 3 AM ET on Wednesday, May 17th.
This update brings thrilling new features, including the much-awaited ranked play mode. Unfortunately, players will have to wait an extra day to dive into the action as the release has been delayed by approximately 24 hours.
In an official statement on the Fortnite Status Twitter account, Epic Games announced, “We have set our sights on May 17th for the release of v24.40 alongside the exciting new Ranked mode.” The studio also assured fans that they will provide further updates on the expected downtime for v24.40.
While the specific server downtime for the update has yet to be announced, it is likely to fall within the usual maintenance window of 3 AM to 4 AM ET for content updates. Although this timing can sometimes vary, players can anticipate a similar schedule for the release of update v24.40 tomorrow.
Alongside the introduction of Fortnite’s new ranked mode, players can look forward to a plethora of fresh content. Leaks by ShiinaBR suggest that the Fortnite update v24.40 will include dazzling new cosmetics, exciting augments, a collaboration with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and much more.
Additionally, Epic Games has confirmed a crucial balance adjustment in tomorrow’s update. The maximum number of materials a player can hold will be reduced from 999 to 500. This means players will need to strategize their inventory management, as they will only be able to carry 500 units of each material at a time. To balance this change, harvesting rates will be slightly increased and eliminated players will drop 50 of each material.
Get ready for an unforgettable Fortnite experience with the arrival of update v24.40 and its incredible ranked mode, engaging collaborations, and gameplay enhancements. Stay tuned for more details and make sure to mark your calendars for tomorrow’s update release.
