Developers Epic Games released a new update in Fortnite Battle Royale on December 4 and we’ve got all of the details, including whatever patch notes were made available for it.

As has been the case with almost every Fortnite update since the start of Chapter 2, the v11.21 patch was released with very little fanfare and no official patch notes.

From what has been revealed about the update thus far, it seems to be a relatively minor one, mainly implementing fixes for several issues and bugs that were plaguing the game.

The only noteworthy aspect of this patch was that it made some slight changes to the Risky Reels location on the map, which many believe is in preparation for the leaked upcoming ‘Galileo’ in-game event that will take place at that point of interest.

A full breakdown of everything in v11.21 can be found below, including the details revealed on Fortnite’s official Trello page.

Epic GamesThere have been almost no patch notes released for updates in Fortnite Chapter 2, and the v11.21 patch is no different.

Risky Reels map changes ahead of ‘Galileo’ in-game event

Following the release of the v11.21 update, players noticed that Risky Reels had been slightly altered. While the changes aren’t major and can be hard to notice at first glance, Risky definitely doesn’t look like it did prior to the patch.

According to leaks, this is only the start of what’s expected to be a flurry of changes to the location over the next few weeks, all leading up to an in-game event that’s been code-named Galileo.

What exactly will take place and when is not yet known, although dataminers believe it will involve something playing on the location’s big screen on January 1, 2020 in order to welcome the new year.

Epic GamesRisky Reels will likely be the location where the leaked ‘Galileo’ in-game event will be held.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
