The update is scheduled for January 31 at 4am PST / 7am EST / 12pm GMT and will look to address “some minor bugs.”
Fans will hope that the update means a fix to the massively popular Replay Mode, which was disabled after an influx of problems originated from the feature.
Many are speculating that the minor patch will also see the Ping counter get fixed after the v7.30 update changed the way Epic Games’ servers calculated users’ connection.

The problem got increasingly annoying when it would display “Connection Lost” to many players, even though nothing seemed to be wrong with their ping.
The patch is said to be a seamless integration that won’t require any downtime for the game, but will still require players to update their clients.
With the many problems plaguing the game lately, Epic Games will sure to be closely monitoring the status of their game shortly after the patch.
