Fortnite update 23.50 patch notes, server downtime, Crack the Code

Fortnite developer Epic Games is getting ready to release the final update of the current season. Fortnite update 23.50 has a February 28 release date and an 8am GMT UK launch time. The new update launches alongside a period of server downtime, which kicks off at 8am. Matchmaking will be taken offline at 7.30am GMT, so you’d better login early if you want to get a few games in before it begins. While there’s no official end time, downtime typically lasts for a couple of hours, which means the game should be back online at around 10am GMT.

The news was announced by Epic Games on Twiter, alongside a sneak preview about what fans can expect.

“3 18 1 3 11 20 8 5 3 15 4 5,” reads the Epic tweet. “Downtime for 23.50 begins at 3 AM ET, with matchmaking being disabled shortly before.”

When translated into letters, the numbers read “CRACK THE CODE”, which suggests the end of season event will require players to perform a little codebreaking.

In addition to laying the foundations for the season finale, Fortnite update 23.50 will introduce the Creed 3 movie crossover. Expect a new skin or two beginning in March.

As usual, Epic will vault and unvault various items, add new challenges, and bring new skins to the item shop.

Fans of The Witcher will also be able to unlock the next set of rewards once the update goes live.
