Fortnite update 11.30 PATCH NOTES: Server downtime, Snowball Launcher, Snow map, more

Fortnite fans can download update 11.30 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android.

As is the norm with numbered updates, the latest Fortnite patch is a big one, weighing in at over 4GB on PC.

Needless to say, it’s accompanied by server downtime, which runs from 9am UK time until around 11am GMT.

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter, although without any teasers about what to expect.

“Hey, everyone!” Epic tweets. “v11.30 is on its way for tomorrow. Downtime begins at 4 AM ET (0900 UTC). Stay tuned for updates when downtime ends.”

While the full list of patch notes is yet to be revealed, data leaks have given us a pretty good idea about what to expect.

With Christmas coming up, Epic is getting ready to release the Snowball Launcher, and will also cover the entire map in snow.

Leaked loading screens (at the top of the page) also confirm the festive theme, and will likely be available as rewards during the event.

Hardcore fans like Lucas7Yoshi have also discovered lots of new skins and items available over the next few weeks.

As you can see from the image below, new skins include The Polar Patroller, Kane, The Devourer, Shiver and Frozen Fishstick.

Fans will also be able to unlock winter items like Christmas jumpers, wraps and Harvesting Tools.

Other update 11.30 patch notes can be viewed on the Fortnite Trello page, which details some of the common bugs about to be fixed by Epic.
