Fortnite update 16.10 PATCH NOTES: Server downtime news, Raptors, Spring Breakout and more


    Fortnite fans can download a brand new update on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android.

    Backing up previous reports, Fortnite update 16.10 has a March 30 release date on consoles and PC.

    The new update will launch alongside a period of server downtime at 9am BST in the UK.

    There’s no official end time to the maintenance, although it never usually lasts more than a couple of hours. With this in mind, expect the game to be back online by 11am at the latest.

    The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, alongside a list of patch notes for update 16.10.

    “A new update is about to hatch,” reads an Epic tweet. “v16.10 is scheduled for release on March 30. Downtime will begin at approx. 4 AM ET (08:00 UTC).”

    As you can tell from the tweet above, the big headline story is that Velociraptors will hatch from the eggs across the island.

    According to Epic Games, BoneCrafting and loot adjustments will also be a part of update 16.10, alongside the return of moving storm circles during the last two zones.

    Update 16.10 also lays the foundation for the imminent Spring Breakout event, which takes place throughout the course of the week.
