On Tuesdays, gamers look forward to the downtime beginning around 2 AM. This does not happen only when a crossover event is scheduled or some inconvenience occurs. It is important to note here that downtime lasts for a few hours. The number of hours it will take depends on a couple of factors including the patch’s size. Between 6 AM and 9 AM, fans can get back in the game.

Patch v30.10 was the last update to be rolled out to Fortnite. In this particular season, it was also the first update to be released. Apart from themed items and a bunch of quests and cosmetic rewards, this update also marked the arrival of Metallica in Fortnite. The update also brought in a concert which can be streamed live on June 22 or 23. The update went live on Thursday, so there was a bit of a delay with the update. This, in turn, pushed back the release schedule of the Week 3 Quests and the Raiding the Rig Story quests.

The next update, as per expectations, will be launched two weeks after patch v30.10. Fans should be happy to know that v30.20 will bring the Summer event to Fortnite. The Summer Fest event is organized every year in Fortnite. In this event, players get the opportunity to go through themed quests and unlock free cosmetics. ShiinaBR, a well-known Fortnite leaker, had posted the upcoming downtime dates a while back. According to them, there will be no delay with the release of the Summer update. If this is true, gamers should look forward to the event going live on Tuesday, June 25.

There are several reasons why the Summer update is always keenly looked forward to by Fortnite fans. The Summer update brings along a bunch of fresh content. This largely happens as the employees of Epic Games go on a month-long break after the release of the update. For a very long time, gamers do not get any content apart from scheduled quests.

Rocket Racing players will have Metallica content to check out. They can also unlock free Adidas decals. LEGO Fortnite fans will have the opportunity to go through the Expert and Casual Modes which have been added recently.
