Ever since the launch of Fortnite, Epic has kept its audience busy with a constant stream of updates, more so than any other studio out there. You’re never too far from the next Fortnite update, bringing with it some kind of new item and a raft of new skins.

Fortnite updates really are mini-events within the seasons themselves, as Epic attempts to keep its players happy over the course of several months with similarly themed content. It’s not easy to churn out so much stuff so often, hence why they now mostly release major updates every two weeks with a hotfix in-between to release items that are already in the game.

If you’re wondering when the next Fortnite update is set to drop, read on.


Next Fortnite Update Day and Time

The next big Fortnite update has not yet been confirmed, but it is expected to land on Tuesday, April 9th, 2024 and will be the v29.20 update. This will be the second Tuesday after the last update, v29.10, with Epic releasing major patches every other week.

It’s not yet confirmed what will be in this update, but expect at least one or two items to be unvaulted.

You do not need to pay anything to access the new content, as all Fortnite updates are entirely free. However, you will not be able to play Fortnite if you do not update as it’s an entirely online game.

If you need more help with Fortnite, be sure to read up on how you can get your hands on some free items and also the best gifts to give the Fortnite fans in your life.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
