It is worth noting that the v12.60 update is expected to be the last one before the next season's delayed arrival in June. Players who opt-in will maintain their targeted frame-rate, as the game automatically sacrifices resolution when necessary. The Grappler and Jetpack have also been added to Party Royale.

According to the Daily Star, Fortnite data miner Lucas7Yoshi shared on his official Twitter account all of the files he has mined from the latest game update, such as an old game skin known as the Recon Ranger.

Epic Games revealed a new Fortnite Spy Games mode called Operation: Infiltration today for the second season of the battle royale's Chapter Two.

As always, we'll keep you update on the status of the Fortnite servers and update this article when the servers are back up. V12.60 will be released tomorrow and here's everything you need to know including the patch notes which we'll update and when the Fortnite servers will go down for maintenance.

In another update next week, Epic will be rolling out changes to aim assist when using a controller on PC. Epic also added in Party Royale and held the premiere of the new mode a couple of weeks ago.

According to Epic Games, update 12.60 will launch alongside server downtime at 7am BST in the UK. The official Fortnite Trello page does list numerous changes, at least when it comes to bug fixes. Two of the three bug fixes which have been confirmed for the update are for the recent pay-to-win issues with two different cosmetics which have been available to purchase in the item shop. With the release of season 2, Epic have changed up the release time of updates and they now release at 6 AM UTC (1 AM ET).

- While we work on an animation fix, the Dragacorn Glider will temporarily appear as a default Glider in competitive playlists on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

- Strike Damage Indicators will occasionally seem to be coming in the incorrect direction than the origin of the harm.

- Exploding Deathbombs may deal damage to the objective through builds.

- Black Metal Weapons may not properly calculate self-damage when the player lands a critical hit.

- Dropping or spawning a weapon and picking it up will sometimes cause you to lose ammo.

With Season 3 just around the corner, it is reasonable to expect some changes to come to the game, and it's impossible to know what Midas' plans are for that Doomsday Device he is building, so maybe we may do have some Shadow Bombs in our future.
