Developers at Epic have not confirmed much of what’s coming to this update
Fortnite: Battle Royale update is coming tomorrow morning, Epic Games has announced. “Ahoy, Mateys! The v8.11 update is setting sail tomorrow, March 20,” the company wrote.
Epic has confirmed the update will arrive at 4am CT, which is when we expect all servers to go down for maintenance and the deployment of the v8.11 update. “During this time we’ll be updating some of our Social Services,” the company wrote. “You may notice some irregularity with your friend’s list & party options until these updates have finished.”
Epic v buck generator usually reveals patch notes a few minutes before servers go offline, so players should expect a full breakdown of changes coming to v8.11 by 4am tomorrow. Servers are usually back a couple of hours after the downtime begins, if there is any tomorrow, so players should be able to play their first matches around 6am CT if the deployment of the update goes smoothly.
Developers at Epic have not confirmed much of what’s coming to this update. The new Flintlock Pistol that was revealed yesterday might be included, since items that are teased on Mondays are usually added to the game immediately in the next update.
Other details, or the lack thereof, indicate fairly small changes coming with v8.11. Players seem fine with the current state of the game, except with a few complaints about the game’s latest vehicle, The Baller. Since these complaints are not widespread, it’s unlikely that Epic will take any action to nerf it this update.
All updates and changes will be listed in the patch notes tomorrow.
