Servers will be taken offline at 9am BST today, which means the popular battle-royale game will be unplayable for a number of hours.
Downtime usually lasts around three hours but it has been known to end earlier in some cases.
Early patch notes for the update claim that version 14.20 is set to introduce Wolverine as a new world boss to take on.
As for what’s being added, we have some brief patch notes which were sent to certain content creators before downtime begins.
According to Fortnite leaker @iFireMonkey on Twitter, the following changes are coming in patch version 14.20.
Confront Weapon X deep in the Weeping Woods, take him out, and shred through your opponents with Wolverine’s Claws mythic powers. Just like other bosses on the map, they drop mythic items relating to their superpowers.
A new LTM is coming into the rotating which sounds like Conquest from the Battlefield games. Earn points by capturing and holding outposts in a new Marvel-themed game mode.
During your island domination, you’ll begin the game with one random superpower and be able to pick up more as the game progresses to build your perfect loadout.
This update is adding in the assets for when the outrageously popular K-pop band BTS will be premiering a special video of their hit song Dynamite in Party Royale.
This event is to coincide with Rocket League going free to play on the Epic Games Store.
There also appears to be a hidden message in the patch notes, which iFireMonkey claims spells out the word ‘Daywalker’.
This, of course, would be a direct reference to Blade, who is a vampire frequently referred to as such since he can walk in the daylight instead of bursting into flames.
These are just the key updates coming to the game according to Epic, but there are sure to be some more bug fixes and other additions squirrelled away in this big update.
