The party's over

Update 17.30 will arrive in Fortnite next week in the first ever back-to-back-to-back update.

This historic occassion returns the regularly scheduled fortnight update format that we've become accustom to.

As we prepare ourselves for a major event in Fortnite, we're expecting a number of clues from leakers in this update to give us an idea of what to expect.

Here are the patch notes for the 17.30 update in Fortnite.

Release Date

The next update will arrive on the 3rd August 2021.

Maintenance traditionally begins at the following times:

  • 1.00AM PT

  • 3.00AM CT
  • 4.00AM ET
  • 9.00AM BST

  • 12.00PM CEST

  • 5.00PM JST

  • 6.00PM AEST

  • 8.00PM NZST

Matchmaking is usually disabled 30 minutes before the update is pushed out.

Patch Notes


Here are some updates and new features that may arrive in the new update:


Every major update has new cosmetics and with 17.21 having none, we're almost guaranteed to get some. As Arianna Grande is anticipated and rumoured to be linked to the upcoming event, maybe we'll see some related cosmetics?






It's unlikely any new weapons will arrive in this update, considering we just had the Plasma Cannon in update 17.21. However, we may see some adjustments to weapons including some being Vaulted or Unvaulted.


While the map will remain untouched when the update arrives, once the event is underway, Coral Castle, Slurpy Swamp and Corny Complex will likely be removed.
