Fortnite early patch notes for update 5.40 have revealed big changes coming to Battle Royale on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Android, iOS Mobile, PCs and Macs.
Fortnite fans should be getting update 5.40 on Tuesday which is likely to bring with it server downtime.
Epic Games throughout Fortnite season 5 have been rolling out major patches every fortnight on a Tuesday, with the next one due on September 4.
The previous major Fortnite update - patch 5.30 - was a huge release, bringing with it the Fortnite cube and the new Tomato Temple location.
And the upcoming Fortnite update 5.40 also looks set to be another major release.
The official Fortnite Twitter account has already revealed that the mysterious High Stakes event will be kicking off next week.
This was not leaked by dataminers going through current Fortnite game files beforehand, which suggests it will be coming in Fortnite update 5.40.
The Fortnite High Stakes event will bring with it new Getaway LTM, the Wild Card outfit as well as the High Stakes challenges.
