Original Story – Fortnite Battle Royale, Save the World and Creative players are gearing up for Epic Games next BIG Update and because of some Avengers Endgame foreshadowing, it's coming a little bit later this week.
We normally see Fortnite Updates arrive on a Tuesday or at the very latest, Wednesday. However, here we are, still waiting with an assortment of Marvel Avengers tie in posters to quench our thirst instead.
The Impending update will likely be announced later tonight, potentially with details on when the update is dropping and whether the game will require any server downtime.
We imagine it will, simply because it seems as though the game is preparing for an event like no other, timed to perfection to coincide with the launch of Marvel's next big cinematic Hollywood blockbuster.
Round numbered updates also normally coincide with more substantial content launches for the game and that's what we're expecting to see in 8.50 tomorrow.
We're suspecting this update will drop in the morning, so be prepared for some downtime between 9-11am BST.
As per usual we'll likely have new patch notes to entertain us in the meantime, which normally drop around 20 minutes before downtime begins.
Keep reading for a look at some of the upcoming changes we're expecting to see in the 8.50 Update.

Equally so, we imagine, more out of keeping fans happy, that the Thanos LTM will also return.
Beyond that, your guess is as good as ours. Hopefully, we can avoid anything as catastrophic as an in-game snappRead More – Source[contf] [contfnew]
