Fortnite fans are counting down to the release of update 28.30 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Android. The delayed Fortnite update has a February 21 release date and a 9am GMT UK launch time. Needless to say, as a numbered update, the new Fortnite patch will be accompanied by a period of server downtime. Matchmaking will be disabled at 8.30am GMT, before the game is taken offline in full from 9am until around 11am UK time. 

The news was announced by Epic Games on X (formerly Twitter): “Downtime for v28.30 begins at 4 am ET with matchmaking disabled shortly beforehand.”

As part of the new update, Epic Games will announce a crossover with musical icon Lady Gaga.

It’s all part of Season 2 of Fortnite Festival, which runs from February 22 until April 22. 

The Fortnite Talent Festival Pass includes new Jam Tracks, Lady Gaga-themed Instruments and the Engimatic Gaga Outfit.

The new update will also add the files for the next Fortnite Crew Pack, as well as new cosmetics in the item shop.

There’s a chance we’ll also get a teaser for the end of season countdown and Season 2 theme.

In addition to the new content, Epic Games will make a series of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, which you can see in the patch notes below.
