Fortnite developer Epic Games is once again taking all things Fortnite offline for server maintenance as part of the launch of update 29.30. Coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox consoles, Nintendo Switch, Android and PC, update 29.30 will be available to download on the morning of April 23. As a numbered update, the download will be accompanied by an extended period of server downtime, which means you won’t be able to play Fortnite, LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing and Fortnite Festival for a few hours. If you want to know when you can log back into Fortnite, check out the 29.30 server downtime schedule below.

The news was announced by Epic Games on X, alongside a preview of what fans can expect from the update.

“Downtime for v29.30 begins at 4 AM ET with matchmaking ending shortly beforehand,” reads an Epic tweet.

For UK fans, this means that Fortnite will be taken offline in full at 9am BST, while matchmaking will be disabled at 8.30am UK time.

Epic hasn’t revealed exactly when downtime will come to an end, but maintenance typically lasts for around a couple of hours.

This means Fortnite should be back online by 11am BST UK time at the latest.

As part of the Epic Games social media post, Epic teased the appearance of a new NIKE crossover and Billie Eilish appearance in Fortnite Festival.

The update could also feature a new Star Wars crossover, a potential X-Men ’97 collaboration, and the return of the Tactical AR.

There’s also a new setting that allows players to not see certain emotes that are sometimes used in a confrontational way.

Found in the Social Privacy menu, the ‘See Confrontational Emotes’ setting applies to the ‘Laugh It Up’ emote, as well as ‘Take the L’, ‘Whipcrack’ and ‘Make It Plantain’.

With the setting enabled users will see a player using the Emote standing still, with no Emote sound.
