There is a new Fortnite update going live today, August 30, 2022 at 9:50 PM. Here are the first patch notes for the fifth major patch of Chapter 3 Season 3.
It’s been almost three months since Epic Games released Fortnite chapter 3 season 3. From what we’ve seen over the past few months, it hasn’t been well received for the most part.
However, the release of the Dragon Ball x Fortnite collaboration changed the minds of gamers with many stating that it feels like a new season since the last collaboration was released.
Not only did we have purchasable cosmetics in the item shop, but two mythic items were added to the game along with challenges and a couple of POIs that were added to the chapter 3 season 3 map.
When a season comes to an end, players begin to cut back on the hours they put into the game, and this season is no different. Chapter 3 Season 4 is expected to release in three weeks, but we still have more content before the current season ends.
Epic Games announced that the 21.50 Fortnite update will be released today. According to data miners, this is the penultimate update of the season. We also know some of the content that will come in the update 21.50 of Fortnite.
