[Update v10.31 is now live] Fortnite down & not working on Xbox, PC & PS4? Here’s Fortnite server status and other info
New updates are being added to the bottom of this story….
Original story (from August 27) follows:
Fortnite is one of the most popular battle royale games on the planet. Fortnite was released on July 21, 2017, and since then the game is ruling the Twitch charts. Fortnite Season 10 is currently underway, and it has added many new elements to the game.
Today, Epic Games has shared a teaser that hints towards the crossover between Borderlands 3 and Fortnite. The artwork shared in the official tweet reveals a mosaic-style Borderland character. The possibility of crossover cannot be denied as Epic Games has collaborated with many big franchises in the past, including Marvel, Stranger Things, and many more.
Epic Games will also release update v10.20 for the game today. It is expected to bring a lot of changes to the game. In Fortnite Season 10, we have already seen the addition of Brute vehicle and Junk Rift item.
Speaking of Junk Rift item, it has been disabled from the game. Epic Games removed the Junk Rift item from the game yesterday, but did not disclose the exact reason for its removal. You can find more details on this matter by heading here.
Today update will add a new item ‘Shield Bubble’ to the game. The description of the item reads, “This is one bubble ‘that’s not easy to burst. Shield yourself from projectiles with this protective dome.” This means it can protect players from incoming grenades and other projectile-based attacks.
It will be interesting to see for how much duration the Dome Shield will protect the players from the incoming projectiles. The use of Shield Bubble at the end of the match can also change the course of the battle, as it can protect a player from rocket launcher attacks.
A new Rift Beacon has also been activated at the Paradise Palms location. The activation of Rift Beacon means the change is coming to Paradise Palms. As we have seen earlier, the activated Rift Beacon changed Neo Tilted to Tilted Town and the soccer field to a massive crater.
Fortnite official Twitter account has revealed the schedule for the upcoming update v10.20. The game update v10.20 will also have downtime which will begin at 4 am ET. During the downtime, the matchmaking for the game will be disabled. Have a look at the official tweet below confirming the downtime & update.
