Here's What Fortnite Update 17.10 Contains

Fortnite update 17.10 is live and players are loving the changes so far but it hasn't been the smoothest rollout.

Here's what we know so far about the Fortnite update 17.10 patch notes.

LATEST - More Fixes Required, Challenges and Artifacts Live Soon

We have the official patch notes from Epic on Update 17.10. They're not hugely extensive and mostly tease in-game events like the Abductors taking players to the mothership.

Not long after the update rolled out, it was found that Believer Beach was completely missing from the map. This is believed to be a bug/glitch and not part of the Cosmic Summer event.

It also looks like the weekly challenges and alien artifact releases will be shifted to Thursdays at 3pm BST as opposed to the erratic released they're suffered from the last two weeks.

Once these challenges and artifacts are live, we'll post the usual guides to help save you the hard work of going in blind.
