How often is Fortnite updated?
Fortnite is considered active development as Epic Games ensures that the game is regularly updated with new content and bug fixes.
These updates are called patches.
Epic Games releases these patches every Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time in America.
That would mean the UK is five hours ahead, so they should be released at 9am BST.
How big are Fortnite updates?
The updates for Fortnite always vary in size.
Sometimes the servers issue big updates that help improve the graphics, especially for PCs.
On the other hand, they sometimes release minor updates that are either more advanced, or maybe they didn’t have as many patches to release as they used to.
Fortnite updates vary in size from 2GB to 5GB.
How long does Fortnite update take?
During these updates, Fortnite will go through a downtime during which the video game cannot be used.
Hence the early morning updates as players should be less likely to use the game at this time as it is assumed they are asleep.
