Fortnite fans are gearing up for the release of update 23.20 on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC consoles. Fortnite’s next update, which is only the second of the new season, will add some long-awaited and new gameplay features, including the rumored Falcon Scout Drone. Unfortunately, however, the new update will be accompanied by a period of server downtime, likely to last at least a couple of hours. If you want to know when you can start logging into Fortnite again, check out the 23.20 downtime schedule below.
Fortnite update 23.20 will be available to download starting at 9am UK time on the morning of January 18.
Matchmaking will start to go down at 8:30am, while the servers will go completely offline at 9:00am GMT.
The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, along with a preview of what fans can expect.
“Did you know that the hawks are not real and are actually secret surveillance drones?” Epic tweeted.
“Downtime for 23.20 begins at 4am ET, with matchmaking going down shortly before.”
If it’s previous periods of server downtime, Fortnite will likely be back online around 11am GMT.
Express Online will keep this article updated with the latest developments, including confirmation of when the game will be back online.
According to the trailer, the main new feature of update 23.20 is the release of the Falcon Scout drone.
There are also rumors that Epic Games could partner with EA to release a Dead Space skin. With the new version of Dead Space releasing later this month, the timing certainly works.
This season’s Doom Slayer skin is also expected to appear, along with the upcoming Crew Pack.
Needless to say, update 23.20 will bring a lot of bug fixes and adjustments to the game.
You can see for yourself when the patch drops on the morning of January 18.
