After unveiling the arrival of two new variants of the Shotgun in the Fortnite Battaglia Reale news section, Epic Games has finally unveiled the release date of the 9.40 version update.
The scheduled maintenance will begin today, 17 July 2019, starting from 10:00 am (GMT +2) and, at the moment, there is no precise information on its duration. However, the new update should be available for download shortly after servicing starts, which usually takes about a couple of hours. As mentioned above, the absolute protagonists of this patch will be the new epic and legendary variants of the Pump Shotgun. It is not inconceivable that some heavy rifles among those currently present in the game can end up straight in the warehouse, so as not to make the game too crowded by this type of gunshot.
In all likelihood, also to accompany the release of the update will be the new discoveries of the dataminer both on the upcoming event on Saturday night at 8.00 pm (GMT +2) and on the upcoming costumes, pickaxes, hang-gliders and covers arriving in the shop objects.
The v9.40 update is closing in!
Downtime begins tomorrow, July 17 at 4 AM ET (0800 UTC).
