Fortnite LTM Disco Domination DELAYED: 6.1 update PUSHED back as patch notes reveal fixes (Pic: EPIC)
We usually see Epic deploy new patches on Tuesday morning, but this week there seems to be a delay in the patch rolling out.
The next Fortnite update was expected to drop on October 2 at around 9am UK time – but it's been hours since then and we haven't seen anything.
Based on previous updates, the patch could now land on Thursday, October 4 – Epic seems to alternate between Tuesday and Thursday updates around the time seasons change over.
If it's a full numbered update, then Fortnite Battle Royale will be taken offline for maintenance – but we don't have any information about that yet.
Fortnite 6.1 Update – DISCO DOMINATION LTM
Ahead of the launch of the new update, a new LTM was revealed to be coming to Fortnite with the launch of patch 6.1.
Revealed via in-game news feed, Disco Domination tasks players with capturing dance floors across the map (it's a very Fortnite thing to do).
Think of the mode like King of the Hill in other games: Teams must defend dancefloors from enemies and can earn more points by dancing and using emotes.
The LTM will almost certainly launch alongside this week's update – we'll update you as we hear more.
Fortnite 6.1 Update – NEW SKINS
The only skins currently in the games datamined files from the launch of Season 6 are those which are available in the Battle Pass.
The only skins from the original launch which weren't live or part of the battle pass, was the Octoberfest and Aviation Age Gear, which have both been available in the item shop over the course of the weekend.
In fact, we might already have some clues as to some of the future skins thanks to the games first Fortnite Loading Screen. Hidden in the background of that loading screen was two Scarecrow character skins.
We expect to see more skins on Thursday.
