Epic Games have disclosed a list of the bugs currently in Fortnite Battle Royale that are expected to be fixed in the upcoming v6.10 update.

Three bugs have been specially marked as ‘fixed in next release’ on the Fortnite community Trello page, which is where all of the top user-reported issues are displayed.

This means that the fixes for these three bugs have been discovered, and will likely be implemented into the game once the next patch goes live.

  • Unrendered Starter Island may appear during the loading screen – While loading in, players may notice an unrendered version of the Starter Island appear for a short time, then be replaced with the loading screen again until the map fully renders.
  • Audio for player eliminations is the same audio used for rotating structures – When a player is eliminated the audio used matches the audio used for rotating structures while in build mode. This can cause “strange” sounds to be heard when multiple players are being eliminated.
  • Floating Island appears in the wrong location on mini-map – The floating island is not appearing in the correct location on the minimap.

The fixes will be implemented via the v6.10 update, which goes live on October 16 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 8 AM BT. For more details about the update, and what else to expect in it, visit our information article here.

In addition to the three bugs mentioned above, there are eight other glitches and issues that are currently in the game and have been officially acknowledged by Epic.

The Trello page suggests that fixes for the two bugs are in the works, and will be released in a future update, while the developers are still monitoring the six other issues in their efforts to find and develop fixes.

  • Occasional audio “pops” on Xbox and PC
  • Items no longer float on water at Loot Lake.

How to watch Fortnite’s J Balvin Afterlife Party: Event time & rewards

Epic Games have confirmed that a Fortnitemares Afterlife Party event with J Balvin is set to rock the Main Stage in Party Royale. Here’s what you need to know.

Over the years, as Fortnite has grown more and more in popularity, Epic Games have teamed up with TV shows, movies, and musicians for a number of live events. 

This has included everything from something as simple as a DJ playing a few songs from their living room to showing off new trailer for a Star Wars movie. Though, it’s stretched all the way to Travis Scott having a jaw-dropping concert live event too. 

With Fortnitemares now being live, the next event will involve Colombian artist J Balvin debuting a new song during an ‘Afterlife’ concert. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

What time is the J Balvin event in Fortnite?

Just like a number of other events in Fortnite, there will be an initial showing before a number of encore shows so that everyone has the chance to get involved. 

The initial J Balvin show will get underway on Saturday, October 31st at 9 pm EDT/1 am GMT/6 pm PDT and 2 am CEST. Though, if you miss the live showing, there will be two other showings.

The first replay, according to Epic, will happen a day later on Sunday, November 1st at a much reasonable time for European fans – 1 pm EDT/6 pm BST/10 am PDT and 7 pm CEST. The second replay will be five hours later on the same day. 

How to get J Balvin Party Trooper Fortnite skin

While these events have, sometimes, given all players free rewards, the J Balvin event will be a little different. 

Instead, anyone who owns the Party Trooper skin that attends the Afterlife Party will unlock an exclusive J Balvin style. However, you don’t have to wear the skin to the event to unlock it, you just have to own it.

Where to find the J Balvin event in Fortnite

If you want to watch the event, as we’ve already noted, it’ll happen inside Party Royale. That’s slightly different to the usual Battle Royale and Creative modes. 

To access it, you’ll want to select the Party Royale game mode in the lobby screen and then search when the event goes live in the menus. Be sure to get in early for the live showing as you don’t want to miss out!

  1. Load up Fortnite
  2. Enter the Battle Royale lobby screen but change the playlist to Party Royale
  3. Search for a game and wait
  4. Once inside, head over to the Main Stage area on the east of the island and enjoy!

The Main Stage is where you’ll be able to find the Fortnite music events.

Obviously, you won’t be able to drop in and watch the show until the date and time that Epic has revealed, so don’t try and get involved too early. 

If you manage to get in, though, make sure to enjoy it and get involved with the party.
