The upcoming High Stakes event that will be taking Fortnite by storm this week includes the highly anticipated Getaway LTM and the High Stakes challenges.
We still do not know what the challenges entail or will even reward players who complete them but we will be learning those details today at 11am PT.

Fortnite are still hesitant to say “tomorrow” – which is the usual date for patches, and they have not announced whether or not the patch is actually coming tomorrow or possibly Thursday. Those are the most probable dates.
The Summer Skirmish livestream, hosted from PAX West at 11am PT, will be showcasing the challenges and “free rewards” coming to the game with the High Stakes patch v5.40. You will be able to watch it at http://twitch.tv/fortnite or on the Epic Games website.
Of course, it is going to be quite a large update. With the new Getaway LTM, Wild Card outfit, challenges, map updates and almost certainly over a dozen new cosmetics and items added to the game, we could be looking at a massive mid-season update.
