Fortnite v15.21 Patch Notes – Release Date, Server Downtime

Information on Fortnite's 15.21 patch!

We have another update straight after last week! However, this one is only a small update that adds a few interesting things!

Update Release Date & Time

The Fortnite 15.21 Patch has been officially announced and will be released on Jan. 20 at 3 am CT (9 am UTC).

Server Downtime

The downtime for this Fortnite update will start at 3am CT (9am UTC) and will end roughly about 6 am CT (12:00 UTC) though this may vary depending on how swiftly Epic can upload the patch. In other words, don't wait around for it, even if you're excited to play!

Official 15.21 Patch Notes

Epic did not send out official patch notes to content creators this week, as this update is small in size. The only information we have to go off is the following that Fortnite Status tweeted out:

Unofficial Patch Notes

These patch notes are from leakers, who have noticed a change in the file names or code. There isn't much but thanks to Hypex for what is changed.

New Boss Character

This is no doubt referring to the Predator, because well, look below it, Jungle Hunter Quests. It all adds up, really, doesn't it?!?! We'll be pleasantly surprised if it wasn't, but alas, we don't think that will happen.

However, that is not all. The Portal has been opened, but the Predator is already prowling the Zero Point map... so who is coming through? If the rumors are true but are a duo pair are about to hop through the portal and help players confront Predator, but who will it be?

This is a small update; there is not a lot else to say. There have not been many leaks about this, and there weren't that many skins either. There were many encrypted files, so we might have more leaks than we think for this update!

New Mythical Item

This is an item only used by the Predator NPC at this current time.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
