There are sure to be plenty of changes arriving in Season 7! With the new theme of the season being space and aliens, expect new weapons, map changes, and plenty more.
Below you will find the official patch notes for the v17.00 update for Fortnite. These notes were taken from the official Fortnite Status Twitter Account.
“The Primal Season — and Makeshift weapons — will soon be extinct. Craft ‘em while you got ‘em. Downtime for Chapter 2 Season 7 begins at 2 AM ET (06:00 UTC).
With the launch of the new Season, please note that patch sizes will be larger than normal on all platforms.
In Season 7, we’re adding the ability to cancel your Shakedown of an opponent. Hitting Reload or the same button/key you used to pick the opponent up will immediately drop them mid-shake, cancelling any accidental interrogations.”
