Fortnite v17.10 downtime

As per usual, Fortnite will be taken offline soon for a regular period of maintenance. During this brief window, players won’t be able to start up any new matches.

This time around, Fortnite maintenance is expected to begin at roughly 12:30 AM PST / 3:30 AM ET /07:30 UTC on June 22.

Entering the Mothership

In this weekly update, Fortnite’s ongoing storyline is set to continue in an intriguing direction. Rather than a subtle teaser or a mysterious easter egg, Season 7’s alien invasion narrative could be giving us a new area to explore already.

“A new surprise descends,” Epic said in a June 21 tweet. “A way inside the Mothership?”

Based on this teaser alone, it certainly sounds as though players will be able to make their way through the alien Mothership. 

Players may be able to enter the Mothership as part of this new Fortnite update.

Fortnite Arena Hype Points

If you fancy yourself a competitive Fortnite player, you might want to get some final games in quickly. With the latest patch, Epic is completely resetting the standings and starting anew.

Arena Hype Points will be to zero across the board, meaning players will have to earn their way back up the rankings.
