Epic Games have revealed patch notes for a third v9.30 content update in Fortnite, with a brand new Air Strike item being added to the battle royale mode.

Previous v9.30 patches have introduced a number of new items and weapons, with some even returning from the vault before the start of 14 Days of Summer, but this next update will mark the arrival of a feature that's never been available in the past. 

A number of changes have been speculated on as we get ever nearer to the end of Season 9, so let's take a look at what the free-to-play title will definitely have in store for us next.

When will the patch go live? 

Epic Games have officially confirmed that there will be no downtime for the v9.30 #3 content update, which is always great news for players, and that it will kick into action on Tuesday, July 9 at 8 AM EST (1 PM BST).

The developers initially hinted at a new "explosive" experience in-game, and judging by the patch notes, they've more than certainly delivered on that promise with the addition of a new Air Strike item.
