Fortnite update 20.40 patch notes, downtime, Obi-Wan launch, PlayStation V-bucks and MORE

Fortnite developer Epic Games is getting ready to release update 20.40 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Android and Nintendo Switch. The new Fortnite update has a May 17 release date and a 9am BST UK launch time. Of course, as a major update, the new Fortnite update will be accompanied by a period of server downtime, which is likely to run for a couple of hours.

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, alongside a brief teaser about what to expect.

Epic tweets: “Sidle in for a showdown! The v20.40 update is scheduled for release on May 17th. Downtime will begin at 04:00 AM ET, with matchmaking disabled 30 minutes beforehand.”

According to the tweet, Epic Games will use the update to further the storyline between the IO and The Seven.

A follow-up tweet confirmed plans to launch a Share Wallet for V-bucks, meaning you can now use your PlayStation V-bucks on other platforms.

Recent rumours suggest Epic Games will finally bring Obi-Wan Kenobi to the game, as well as influencer Ali-A.
