Fortnite Update Patch Notes 4.18 v29.01 – Server Downtime 1.000.129 – 19 March 2024

Epic Games has announced a new Fortnite update, v29.01 (4.18). Here are the early patch notes for the 19th March 2024 release including server downtime information.

It’s been just over a week since Epic Games released Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 which included major map changes, a new Battle Pass, and several new mythic items and bosses.

Unfortunately, there have been several major bugs and performance issues since the release of the new season, including extended downtime which meant the game was down for the longest period since the Battle Royale game mode was first released.

Thankfully, most of the issues have been resolved with hotfix updates, and players have been enjoying everything the season has to offer.

However, players are always excited when the first Fortnite update of a new season releases, and that’s no different in Chapter 5 Season 2.

Earlier, Epic announced that the v29.01 (1.000.129) will be released today, and they also stated when the servers will go down for scheduled maintenance.

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s new release including server downtime and the new content players can expect to see on 19th March 2024.
