Epic Games have announced the v12.60 update for Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2, and we’ve got everything you need to know, including the release time, downtime info, and the unofficial patch notes.

Season 2 is slowly but surely winding down to a close in Fortnite, which means v12.60 might be the last big update we get before Season 3 kicks off on June 4.

With many complaining about the severe lack of new content in the game, even a late-season patch like this one is enough to get a lot of people excited at what it could potentially contain.

When is the Fortnite v12.60 update going live?

Epic announced that v12.60 would hit live servers on Wednesday, May 20, at 11 PM PT / 2 AM ET, which is technically still Tuesday evening for those on the west coast.

There downtime is now over, so you can jump back into the island and check out all the changes for yourself.

Fortnite v12.60 patch notes

Epic no longer reveals full patch notes for their updates, but here’s what we know has changed. The official Fortnite Trello page does list many of the changes, at least when it comes to bug fixes.

      “Controller tweaking, tuning, and investigation continues. We have some changes for next steps, but we don’t want to release right before the FNCS Invitational Finals.”

  • Exploding Deathbombs will no longer deal damage to the objective through builds.
  • Fixed issue causing Black Metal Weapons to not respect self-damage amount when performing Critical Hits.
  • Dropping or spawning a weapon and picking it up will no longer cause you to lose ammo.
Epic GamesThe Dragacorn Glider will soon be enabled again in Fortnite competitive playlists.

Clouds appearing over The Agency

Players have noticed that clouds appear to be forming a circle over The Agency location on the map, potentially a teaser for a Hurricane?

This possibly ties in with the Doomsday event, expected to lead us into the next season.

Storm the Agency Challenges

There is a new set of challenges too, which tie in with the possibility of a Hurricane at The Agency.

It’s not clear yet what Epic has planned for this map location, but a leak previously indicated big changes are on the way.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
