ORIGINAL: The Fortnite 13.0 update is about to be released by Epic Games.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has a release date of June 17 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.

The new season means a whole new Battle Pass, with new rewards, skins, items and bonuses.

A new season also means a big new update, a long list of patch notes and server downtime, which takes place at 7am for fans living in the UK.

“We think the storm may be something …” reads an epic tweet. “Prepare for Chapter 2 – Season 3. The downtime starts at 2:00 am ET (06:00 UTC)! ”

Although there is no official server shutdown schedule, fans can expect the game to return online around 9 a.m.BST.

The 13.0 update will be available for download when the servers are disconnected for maintenance.

File sizes will be revealed once the update is online, although Epic warns that the patch will be larger than usual.

“Note: With the launch of the new season, patch sizes will be larger than normal,” reads a follow-up tweet.

According to the first patch notes, the new update will bring one or two essential improvements.

This is in addition to the usual map changes, which will likely involve flooding of the map following the recent event.

Based on the teasers of Fortnite Season 3, update 13.0 will introduce a new mode of transport.

It looks like fans will soon be able to drive a jet ski around the flooded map, or maybe a dirt bike.

Epic Games also apparently teased a brand new Aquaman Fortnite Battle Pass skin. One of the teasers appears to show a Trident, which is used by the DC superhero.

Aside from all of the new items, skins, map changes, and gameplay additions, Epic will also fix countless bugs and issues.

Check out the first patch notes below and come back at 7 a.m. on June 17 for the full list of official patch notes.
