Fortnite developer Epic Games released a new update this morning only two days after the launch of the v8.10 update. Despite players having to download new files to run the game, this is just a stability update that needed no server maintenance or patch notes, the company said.
This morning’s Fortnite update probably has to do with stability issues on iOS that Epic reported yesterday. It had to disable voice chat in the platform for a few hours to investigate an issue, and then for a few more hours to find a solution and deploy it. Epic refrained from detailing what exactly has been modified to improve stability.
This has been a common kind of update in Fortnite recently. After the season eight release, Epic also had to make a stability update to fix some bugs that were happening in the game, such as the pickaxe damage being set to zero and an error with the Xbox One text chat, which had to be removed for some time as well. Just like today’s update, there were no patch notes or further details from Epic.
Players should keep their excitement in check about today’s stability update. Since there are no patch notes for this update, there are probably no gameplay changes or anything that will directly affect weapons, characters, or matches in general. Players should find the game in the same state as it was after the v8.10 update unless Epic releases patch notes later today explaining tweaks that have yet to be revealed at this time.
Fortnite players will have to download this stability update to be able to log into their matches and play the game.
