Downtime for the final major update of Season 2 has been announced for May 17, 2023. Here's an early look at the patch notes for v24.40.
Fortnite's v24.40 update will replace the competitive Arena modes with the new 'Ranked' system. Players will be able to enable Ranked matchmaking for Battle Royale and Zero Build. Ranks will span across Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Elite, Champion and Unreal. Bronze through Diamond will have three ranks, while Elite, Champion and Unreal will have one.
Miles Morales Arrives
Fortnite's crossover with 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' will begin following the v24.40 patch, introducing new cosmetics and returning Mythic items to the game.
New Reality Augments
More new Reality Augments are also expected to be introduced with the v24.40 patch. Unlike previous updates, the Augments arriving tomorrow have not been leaked ahead of their official release.
v24.40 will decrease the material cap in all modes from 999 to 500. Siphon will remain disabled in both Ranked and Unranked matches.
Fortnite will vault the 'Trios' playlists for both Battle Royale and Zero Build in v24.40.
