The v9.01 Update is among us!
Fortnite tweeted out earlier today:
“Get up close and personal when the v9.01 update releases tomorrow, May 15.
Downtime begins at 4 AM ET(0800UTC)”
Judging by this post it seems we will get very close and personal with a new LTM, most likely the new Wick’s Bounty LTM which leakers had found in the files over this past week. We also have gotten a slight look within a loading screen for Season 9 that the Heavy Shotgun should be making a return at some point.
We also have a brand new weapon joining the loot pool as seen above: The Tactical Assault Rifle – which should be in Rare, Epic and Legendary rarities.
There is no way to predict what may be happening map change-wise except for of course The Block updating to a new player’s creation.
There may or may not be new leaks with incoming skins within this patch. There is currently a few strings in the files though that suggest some interesting cosmetics for Wick’s Bounty
and an interesting look at something new called “Live Games” which should be coming soon
More on this patch will be released here with tomorrow’s downtime!
