Fortnite 12.61 Patch Notes – Unofficial Update Information

We're compiling a complete look at some Fortnite 12.61 Patch Notes! We're attempting to collect all of the changes, updates, and bug fixes from the most recent patch. Epic has been less regular about posting their patch notes, so we've gone ahead and made our own version of them! You can find information on everything that was added in the post below.

This patch is likely going to be pretty small, so don't expect many changes or leaks from it. It could just be adding some stuff prior to the final event of the season, so a lot of stuff we won't get much access to.

Patch Release Date & Time

The Fortnite 12.61 Patch has been officially announced to be released on Tuesday, May 26th at 2 AM ET (0600 UTC)! You can expect at least a couple hours of downtime once it has been added to the game.

Official Patch Notes

Prior to each patch, Epic has been sending out a look at some of the highlights from the update to content creators. Here's a look at what they sent for 12.61:

12.61 releases this week on May 26. Highlights include:

Storm The Agency

New Challenges arrive this week for XP and the chance to earn a new Wrap, Pickaxe, and Glider. You can also gift a free loading screen to a friend.

We're planning to push Storm the Agency live at 10 AM ET after 12.61 releases.

PC Controller Adjustments

More controller adjustments incoming. We're keeping an eye on things and will keep you posted on new updates.

  1. Above the title there is a picture with 5 skins with yellow on them. Does anyone know the name of the one all the way to the left??? Pls and thx

  2. Does Epic know that the storm circles are much larger in the first phase than before???

    1. It’s because of the Doomsday that is coming up. That’s why the weird storm circles are happening.

  3. The Mobile IOS crashing has been a huge problem in tournament endgames
