Fortnite update 18.30 patch notes, server downtime schedule, NEW unvaulting, Cube Pyramid


Fortnite developer Epic Games has confirmed plans to release a brand new update on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S and Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC and Android.

Fortnite update 18.30 has an October 26 release date and a 9am BST UK launch time. It will launch alongside a period of maintenance.

According to the server downtime schedule, services will begin to be taken offline at around 8.30am. The downtime should end at around 11am BST.

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter: “Do you fight with force… or with groove?” reads an Epic tweet. “The v18.30 update is scheduled for release on October 26. Downtime will begin at approx. 4 AM ET (08:00 UTC), with matchmaking being disabled approx. 30 minutes before.”

As you can see from the Epic tweet, fans will be able to vote for another unvaulting. This week’s competition is between the Combat Shotgun and the Boogie Bomb.

There are also rumours that the Cube Town may finally transform into the rumoured Pyramid that was discovered last season. 

“The Cube Town MIGHT turn into a Pyramid slowly (the Pyramid that I talked about last season), because there’s a string in the Cube Queen’s effects that refers to her as the “Pyramid Tip”, and she will also be holding her pickaxe after 18.30 with lightning effects around her!” reads a Hypex tweet.

Fans can also expect a whole host of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks. You can see the full list of update 18.30 patch notes below.
