Fortnite Update 3.40 Patch Notes Today (December 9)

A previously released PC and Android update comes to consoles today!

December 9, 2021

A brand new Fortnite update was deployed earlier today (December 9) and brings a previously released patch for PC and Android Devices to PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.

There isn’t much to get excited about surrounding today’s update, but rumours suggest that v19.01 will be arriving at the beginning of next week. If the speculation is true, this will be the first content update of Chapter 3 Season 1, which launched to rave reviews just last week.

Chapter 3 kicked off with a bang as fans were treated to a brand new island, new Marvel collaborations, and the reveal that The Foundation is who we all thought it was…Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

But now that the excitement has died down, Epic Games has begun addressing various stability issues since the release of the new Chapter. Check out the official patch notes and details for today’s update below.
