Fortnite update 26.10 patch notes, server downtime, new items and Sub Zero?

Fortnite developer Epic Games is about to release a brand new update for PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android. Fortnite update 26.10 has a September 12 release date and a 9am BST UK launch time. Needless to say, as the first major update of the new season, version 26.10 will launch alongside a period of server downtime, which kicks off at 9am BST. The game is expected to come back online at around 11am. 

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, alongside a hint about what to expect from update 26.10.

“Brrrr… v26.10 downtime begins at 4 AM ET, and matchmaking will be disabled shortly beforehand.”

The hint has led to speculation about what exactly will launch as part of update 26.10.

With the early access launch of Mortal Kombat 1 just a few days away, some fans believe Sub Zero will join the game as a playable character.

Epic Games is also expected to add a new item or weapon to the game, as well as a new Augment. That’s on top of new skins in the item shop. Express Online will update this article with all the new additions on September 12.

In the meantime, you can check out the Fortnite update 26.10 early patch notes below…
