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 occasion returns the regularly scheduled fortnight update format that we've become accustomed 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.
The next update will arrive on the 3rd August 2021.
Servers will start to be disabled from 5.30AM UTC - those times are as follows:
- 12.30AM CT
- 1.30AM ET
Matchmaking is usually disabled 30 minutes before the update is pushed out.
This update should range between 1-5GB.
Here's the sizes for the last update.
- Xbox One - 2.6GB
- Xbox Series X - 2.8GB
- PS4 - 3.1GB
- PS5 - 2.7GB
- PC - 1.9GB
- Switch - 1.4GB
- Android - TBC
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 Ariana Grande is anticipated and rumoured to be linked to the upcoming event, maybe we'll see some related cosmetics?
UPDATE: A couple of new cosmetics have been identified

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.
UPDATE: New weapons and items have been discovered!

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.
