UPDATE: The V6.21 update will be delayed until Thursday, November 1 after Epic Games found an issue with it.


Epic Games have announced the release time for Fortnite’s Patch v6.20, which is the first update coming to Fortnite Battle Royale since the launch of the Fortnitemares event.

Epic Games have just announced that Patch v6.21 will be releasing on Wednesday, October 24 2018 at 4am ET/8am GMT. The patch will include the recently announced Balloon item and more.

It’s expected that two weeks worth of new cosmetics will be added to the game through Patch v6.21, so stay tuned to FortniteINTEL for the latest leaks when the patch hits tomorrow after its downtime.

Downtime begins at 4AM EST / 8AM GMT and should last an hour – however this could end up being longer, or even shorter. In the past, patch notes were made available 5-10 minutes before the downtime began, so expect us to post the Patch v6.21 patch notes as fast as possible.

The headlining addition for the Patch v6.21 update is expected to be the Balloons – which were recently teased through Fortnite Battle Royale’s message of the day.
