Original Story – Fortnite servers are DOWN this morning with matchmaking temporarily offline and login issues for anyone attempting to play. This is so Epic Games can release the new v6.21 update and patch notes for the game.
For those wondering, this is for both game modes – Battle Royale and Saver the World – and all available platforms, including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and iOS Mobile devices.
Official patch notes have arrived for the new update and as with every update, there’s also a number of secrets hidden inside the game’s code.
And like before, the update has been determined by users who have revealed a number of new items on their way to the game shop.
There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, pickaxes, gliders, back bling and emotes.
It’s unclear when these new items could go live in the game, but it’s likely going to be spread out over the next few days as items you can obtain from the Fortnite shop when it refreshes each morning at 1am.
Take a look at the new cosmetics above and below
It’s worth noting that the names and rarities for these new items are not currently known.
But we’ll update this post later today with additional information as soon as it becomes available.
For now, in the event you missed the news, there have also been some notable improvements in the game that’ll land today.
There’s a whole new way to get some air in Battle Royale has been announced: Balloons represent a new way of traversing off the ground, and should probably make for good replay value when looking back over encounters, too.

For now, stay tuned for more info on these new leaked skins the second we get it.
