Also available on Android to resolve some crashes.
Epic Games has issued a quick path for the PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch versions of Fortnite. I say “quick patch” because it seems to be a hot fix more than anything. According to Epic, the update is specifically to address some issues with how tournaments, added in the previous major update, function on those platforms.
The update is also available for the Android version, where it will address some crashes that the game has been experiencing on the platform. The update is not, however, available for the iOS version of the game.
There is no downtime associated with this update—however, Epic notes that you do need to download it if you want to play online, so basically just download the update and get it out of the way. The good news is that it comes in at only 400MB, so it shouldn’t take much time or bandwidth to get it installed anyway. In fact, your systems should have downloaded it themselves, assuming you left them on Sleep Mode.
A patch is currently being deployed on all platforms (except iOS) to fix tournament issues and some Android crashes. No downtime, but you will need to download the update!
