The long-awaited Fortnite update version 24.10 had to be pushed back by one day, much to everyone’s disappointment. Today, which is Wednesday, will see the release of the update instead of the typical schedule, which sees updates being made available on Tuesdays (March 29, 2022). Despite this, there has been no change to the time. Around four in the morning, Eastern Standard Time, the maintenance window will open.
The servers will be taken offline as is normal thirty minutes before the beginning of the maintenance window. Those who are playing in BR mode or enjoying Save The World should think about stopping their session long before 3:30 am Eastern Time to ensure that they do not miss out on any advancements.
How long is the maintenance scheduled to take place for Fortnite today (March 29)?

Because this is the first major update date of the season and because it occurs soon before Easter, the maintenance period may extend for a significantly longer amount of time than it normally does. If nothing else, it is likely that the servers will be out for somewhere between three and four hours. Having said that, it is without a doubt that they will be online no later than 8:00 am Eastern Time, the absolute latest.
In any case, due to the fact that most players in the Eastern Time Zone will be at work or school today, it is unlikely that they will be able to participate in the game until the late afternoon at the earliest. Even if the maintenance takes far longer than anticipated, it should not be a major concern.
Fortnite’s update version 24.10 includes both bug fixes and changes to existing content.
What to expect in tomorrow's update:
– New Cosmetics
– Easter Event 2023
– New Augments
– April Crew Pack (Triarch Nox)
– New "Smart Pistol" weapon?
– Battle Pass Super Styles
– Possibly new collabs? 🤔
– And even more!! pic.twitter.com/qcApFYcxit

What to expect in tomorrow’s update:- New Cosmetics- Easter Event 2023- New Augments- April Crew Pack (Triarch Nox)- New “Smart Pistol”weapon?- Battle Pass Super Styles- Possibly new collabs? 🤔- And even more!! https://t.co/qcApFYcxit
Following the installation of patch v24.10, a substantial amount of new content will be added to the game, as was discovered by data miners and leakers. Let’s begin by addressing the most important issue at hand, which is the Easter Event. To commemorate Easter, there will be an in-game event, even though it is highly unlikely that there will be a real event.
Easter-themed weapons and cosmetics will be added to the game once again, just as they are done every year around this time. The Egg Launcher will be reintroduced into the game’s loot pool at the same time that a variety of holiday-themed outfits will be made available for purchase in the Item Store.
However, it is quite unlikely that this will continue to be available to use within the game beyond April 10, 2023. In spite of this, it will provide a much-appreciated change of pace and is likely to lend an air of distinction to the event. Also, the game will see the addition of new chicken breeds in the near future.
The Wildlife Spawner device is set to be updated tomorrow to include Spring Chickens as a wildlife option, which should also mean new chicken type in tomorrow's update for BR!

According to the information that is currently available, they will lay “Low Gravity Hop-Rock Eggs,” which players can swallow in order to gain the Low Gravity effect for themselves. In addition, in order to celebrate the Easter Event, a brand new Reality Augment, in addition to Quests and Challenges, will be added to the game.
In addition, the ‘Smart Pistol’ that was demonstrated in the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 may or may not be implemented into the game at some point in the future. In theory, the functionality of this weapon ought to be comparable to that of the ‘Smart Weapons’ featured in select action video games like Cyberpunk 2077. The one and only distinction would be that users would need an unobstructed view of the target in order to be able to shoot it. Using cover to conceal your shooting position and then firing with this weapon will not work.

The Fortnite update version 24.10 will also include the correction of two bugs, which is not the least of its changes. The first one is scheduled to re-enable Zip Lines in Party Royale Mode, and the second one is going to fix issues with FPS capping on some devices (cloud and mobile).
