Epic Games have announced the release date and time for the upcoming v4.2 content update for Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The update is set to go live on May 22nd at 5 AM PST / 8 AM EST / 1200 BST and will not have any downtime.

The announcement was made on May 21st via a post on the official Fortnite Twitter page.

Strap in and blast off with Jetpacks in the v4.2 Content Update.
Available tomorrow, May 22 at 8am ET (1200 GMT). No downtime.

There will be no downtime because this is only a content update, meaning that it will only contain new content and no fixes and/or in-game adjustments.

The regular v4.2 update was implemented on May 16th after an undisclosed issue delayed its release by a whole day.

The v4.2 content update is still set to be filled with exciting and new content as it is expected to launch the next Limited Time Mode that will apparently feature the new Jetpack.

The much-anticipated Jetpacks were announced by Fortnite to finally be on their way into the game after being delayed by over two months since being initially announced in March.

Furthermore, this content update will also most likely include the next batch of the weekly challenges that players who own the Battle Pass can complete for additional in-game XP.

FNCS Chapter 2 Season 4 NA East recap – Week Three

Another week of FNCS and another Trio has been crowned victorious. Former winners pulled off some huge plays and made it back into the top 10 again. Ultimately though, it was  TMS Commandment Liquid Cented, and NRG Edgey that won it all in week three.

They had a 20 point lead over the second-best team, cruising well ahead of those in third place and below. As per usual, all of the biggest names were lined up to compete. Only three players could walk away with the lion’s share though.
