May 9, 2022

Fortnite has received a brand new update on Nintendo Switch today, which you can download now and then continue your adventure on the island!

With the arrival of the Fortnite v20.30 update last week, some players started to experience issues with the servers and matchmaking system. While most of these problems were fixed soon after the patch’s arrival, Epic Games has recently implemented some more balanced changes to ensure everyone will have a smooth experience on all gaming platforms.

Fortnite Update Patch Notes for Today (May 9)

  • We’ve just released a maintenance patch on Nintendo Switch to address stability issues.

As you can read above, the update is a simple back-end improvement to make the connections more stable and keep the overall experience smoother.

Next week, Epic Games will bring the next major update for Fortnite with more content drops and probably new collaboration-based skins. The game currently hosts the Scarlet Witch outfit as well as some brand new skin packs in the Item Shop.

Fortnite is now available for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC.

Recently, Microsoft officially announced that gamers can use the company’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service for free to play Fortnite on Android, iOS, and Windows on a web browser. This is a huge step forward for xCloud and Epic Games in making Fortnite and cloud gaming more accessible.
