How long is Fortnite down? Maintenance times and matchmaking news

Fortnite fans are counting down to the release of update 22.40 on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, Android and PC. Based on hints dropped by Epic Games, the new Fortnite update will introduce a brand new Zero Build 40-vs-40 LTM. That’s on top of the usual selection of gameplay tweaks, map changes, and bug fixes. Unfortunately, however, as a numbered update, version 22.40 will launch alongside a period of extended server downtime on all platforms. If you want to know when you can start logging back into Fortnite, check out the downtime schedule below.

According to a recent tweet from Epic Games, Fortnite update 22.40 will be available to download from 9am GMT UK time on November 15.

If you want to get a few games in before the update, it’s worth noting that matchmaking will actually be disabled at 8.30am. This means you’ll need to be in a game by 8.30am GMT if you want to play.

All players will be kicked out of the game at 9am GMT, which is when servers go offline for maintenance and update 22.40 makes its debut.

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, alongside a sneak preview of what to expect from the next major download.

“Get ready to battle with 39 of your closest friends for v22.40!” reads an Epic tweet. “Downtime will begin at 4 AM ET with matchmaking being disabled shortly beforehand.”

If it’s anything like previous periods of server downtime, then Fortnite is likely to come back online at around 11am BST.

Express Online will keep this article updated with all the latest developments, including confirmation on when the game is back online.

The headline new feature is the addition of the aforementioned 40-vs-40 limited time mode.

Similar to the classic 50-vs-50 LTMs introduced during earlier seasons, the game mode pits team against team in a winner takes all battle. 

The twist, however, is the 40-vs-40 version will adopt the Zero Build format, meaning you won’t be able to create cover.

Elsewhere, Fortnite insiders like Shiina believe Miles Morales could make an appearance as a guest skin.

Likewise, Epic could add files linked to the end of season event, which takes place in December. Stay tuned for all the latest Fortnite update 22.40 developments here on Daily Express.
