Fortnite: Server maintenance for update 21.50 – time for server down on 30.08.

Then the servers for the update are offline: Wherever there is an update for Fortnite, server maintenance is usually not far away. Before each new patch for the game, the servers are down for a few hours while Epic Games does their usual maintenance. The downtime usually lasts three hours.

  • Server down: August 30, at 10 a.m. German time
  • Servers back online: Around 12-1 p.m. German time

So you can’t access the servers at the moment because the maintenance is in full swing. Traditionally, you should be able to log back into Fortnite normally at noon, but no later than 1 p.m. We’re updating this article to keep you up to date.

How big is the new update in Fortnite? The new patch 21.50 is a little over 2 gigabytes in size. On the PS5 you need about 2.3 GB of space on the hard drive. You can download the update during downtime and start playing as soon as the servers are back online.

Fortnite: Patch Notes for Update 21.50 – that changes today

What’s new? Epic has not yet revealed any official patch notes for today’s update in Fortnite. We will shortly add the changes that the fresh update brings to Fortnite. However, the developer has already stated that imposter mode will be removed. It then goes into the vault.

That’s what leaks say: But there are already first leaks that speak of interesting innovations. So double jumps should be added.

If the information is correct, it should soon be possible to hop through the air with even greater mobility and acrobatics. On the leaks we see images and emote descriptions for somersaults in the air. The Destiny 2 crossover is currently running in Fortnite. What can we expect next?
