Fortnite v17: 10: the island is updated, all the news

Fortnite v17

Only a week has passed since the first Fortnite update relating to the new Season 7. With the advent of UFOs, the players of the popular battle royale were able to savor a new theme proposed by Epic Games. Now, the sightings also continue with the new update that brings the successful title to version 17:10, which offers fans a new series of novelties to discover gradually.

the first novelty coming with the new update is about UFOs. Players will notice that it will no longer just come across some flying saucers, but the Kidnappers will also be there. As stated by Epic, the Kidnappers float over some very specific points of the island. After some time, beams start firing at the ground and anyone who walks within the beam is kidnapped.

In addition to the Kidnappers, Alien Vermin have been sighted. If one of these Parasites sticks to your head, it will decrease your Health level up to 60, without touching the Shields .. But this situation does not only bring disadvantages, since the Parasites, in fact, protect against blows to the head, make you run faster and jump higher. As if that were not enough, once you reach level 100 you can unlock a series of new styles that are nothing short of fantastic.

As often happens with this kind of updates, Epic Games takes the opportunity to fix and fix some situations and bugs present in Fortnite and its different game modes. Specifically, in the 17:10 version of the title some problems have been solved with the cars, at the Battle Laboratory and finally a problem has been solved that prevented the completion of "Doctor Slone" and "Jonesy Bunker" in the Character Collection Register.

You absolutely cannot be caught unprepared for the new contents of the new Fortnite patch. For this you can now buy a V-Bucks refill on Amazon at this address.

Epic Games

The first major update of Fortnite Season 7 is just over the horizon and it’s going to bring a new event to the game for fans to experience.

This event in question is the Cosmic Summer Celebration and it’s shaping up to be an alien-heavy event, so if you ever wanted to make contact with life from another planet, this will be your chance to do so.

This event kicks off with the launch of the new Fortnite update and it’ll usher in the beginning of summer.

The festivities include new quests, new rewards, and a whole lot of fun with your friends!

Looking forward to sharing more about this 2-week party, starting June 22nd!

As of right now, we don’t know for certain what this event entails, but we’re sure there will be a lot of things to do. Epic has already guaranteed new quests and rewards, but we’re sure there will be some extra surprises.

Other than the start of the event, there will also be more to look forward to. With this being a big patch, there will be downtime, and here’s what we know about that.

As a reminder, marking the end of the competitive pre-season, Arena Hype Points will be reset with the release of v17.10.

Downtime is a given for any big update and that’s no different with the v17.10 patch. Epic has announced that Fortnite will go offline for the update beginning at 3:30 a.m. ET / 12:30 a.m. PT on June 22. It sounds like we’ll be going inside the spaceship!

Typically, the downtime isn’t too long unless it’s the start of a new season, so there likely won’t be too long of wait this time around. However, it does mean that you won’t want to be in the middle of a game when downtime happens because you’ll be removed from that match. There’s no sense on missing out on Victory Royales, so just be aware of that.

While we know about the downtime and the upcoming event, there’s even more to look forward to. This update will be fixing a lot of the nagging bugs in the game, so let’s look at those.
