Because the patch notes will not be released until the update goes live, there is no way to tell what kind of content will be added to Fortnite.
However, many believe that version two of the Playground Limited Time Mode will be released as part of this update, and will include a variety of new features that the community has asked for.

As mentioned above, the update will not need any downtime, the reason being that it is set to only contain new content and no in-game changes and/or adjustments and fixes.
It seems that Epic will continue following the update pattern from Season 4 in Season 5, in which a Content Update was released a week after each Game Update.
