Epic Games have finally announced the final update for Fortnite chapter 3 season 3, 21.51. Here’s everything you need to know about the update, from server maintenance downtime to download size.
It’s been just over three months since Epic Games released Fortnite chapter 3 season 3. It didn’t seem to get off to such a great start compared to season two. However, there were more rumors surrounding the second season with the removal of the build mechanic from the main game mode for two weeks.
This season is also longer than the previous one, but we got a major update that made the season feel brand new. When the Dragon Ball x Fortnite collaboration kicked off with challenges, two Mythic items, and map changes, many felt it was what the season needed.
That hasn’t stopped players from wanting the season to end, as is the case in the final weeks of every Fortnite season. However, we do have one last patch update before then.
Epic Games have announced the next and final update for the season, 21.51, which is scheduled to release today (September 7, 2022). Here’s everything you need to know about the 21.51 Fortnite update.
Fortnite Server Maintenance Downtime: September 7, 2022
The release of a new patch update in Fortnite results in servers being taken down for scheduled maintenance and today’s 21.51 patch is no different.
As usual, Epic Games posted a tweet on the Fortnite status account with details on when the Fortnite servers will go down on September 7, 2022. The servers will go down at 4am ET (9am BST) and matchmaking it will be deactivated thirty minutes before.
Players complained that they were kicked out of their game a few minutes before the matchmaking deactivation time, so we recommend not entering a game forty-five minutes before the servers go down.
When will the servers be back online?
We get this question with the release of every new update. Epic never indicates when the Fortnite servers will be back online, but they are usually only down for an hour or two. We expect the servers to be back online at 6am ET (11am BST). We will keep you up to date with the latest and will update you when the servers are back up.
Fortnite 21.51 Update Patch Notes
Before a major update, we usually know what to expect thanks to leaks. However, we don’t know what Epic will add in today’s 21.51 update. However, it is highly unlikely that any cosmetics will be added in this update.
We should see Fortnite update 21.51 event files being added and leaked or we will see some smaller scale challenges and events on the map. As always, we will be posting news and leaks from the latest patch release.
21.51 Fortnite File Download Size
We don’t expect the Fortnite 21.51 update to be a big one, but we will update the article with the download size for each platform as soon as the patch is released.
