The Doomsday event is planned to go live with the ending of Season 2, just a day before the release of Season 3. But, according to recent stories, the event itself might be a part of the beginning of Season 3. So, in other words, an event that will drive the players onto the new Fortnite island kicking off the new Fortnite Season.
Patch 12.61 should also address a couple of issues, previously reported on the Trello page. Those can be found below:
- Numbers not changing on sports-themed Outfits.
- Unable to refund Dragacorn Glider.
- Hit Indicators showing wrong direction.
- iOS players hitching at high rate
For more detailed info, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
