The v10.10 content update for Fortnite is finally here, bringing a host of map changes and new content to the battle royale mode.

The v10.10 patch dropped on August 14 - a day after first scheduled - and delivered a number of changes to the map, including the return of Retail Row to replace the outgoing Mega Mall. 

For the content update, another map change has taken place, as the 'Rifts' which have been appearing all over take effect.

Retail Row made its return with the v10.10 patch, but what will the next Fortnite content update bring?


Fortnite v10.10 content update release time

The v10.10 content update is has gone live at 8am EST (1pm BST, 5am PT, 10pm AET) on August 20.

Epic Games have confirmed that there will be zero downtime for this event, so once your update is finished you can hop right in.

Thanks to the Rifts at the Indoor Soccer Pitch, the location has been transformed in the v10.10 update, leaving a giant crater.

It's the third change to be implemented since the start of Season X, with different locations expected to receive a makeover as the season progress.

Moisty Palms 

Keep your eyes peeled for changes at the Paradise Palms location!

There have been a whole host of hints at the return of Moisty Mire since the landmark tenth season began and we wouldn't be surprised to see yet another development at the point of interest.

Things have been changing at Paradise Palms since Fortnite Season 10 began.

So far, we have seen a number of trees sprouting on top of buildings, more grass growing around its perimeter, and even seen the Paradise Palms welcoming sign feature some swamp foliage in the background. There's bound to be another change with the v10.10 content update. 

Compared to previous weeks, where developers have teased big changes, this has been a relatively quiet spell for Epic - aside from the change to the game's news feed. So, they could have some surprises up their sleeve this time out.

BATTLE ROYALE

Junk Rift

Heads up! You can now deal with opponents by dropping heavy things on them. With the power of the Rift, summon anchors, cars, and more to fall from the sky.

Glitched Consumables
