As with all major Fortnite updates, the servers will be taken down while the update is applied. This usually happens around 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST and lasts around 1-2 hours. Matchmaking will be disabled around half an hour before the servers go down.
Fortnite’s Cube Town might become a pyramid
Fortnite’s Cubes came together to form the Cube Town, or The Convergence, in the 18.21 update, and leaks have suggested this may now turn into a pyramid.
Well-known leaker HYPEX has discovered that “there’s a string in the Cube Queen’s effects that refers to her as the ‘Pyramid Tip,’ and she will also be holding her pickaxe after 18.30 with lightning effects around her!”
Because of this, they said that “The Cube Town MIGHT turn into a pyramid slowly.” We’ll just need to wait for the 18.30 update to find out for sure.
