A Fortnite 10GB update is rolling out to PS4 users (patch 1.53) and it’s causing all kinds of rumors to spread. With talk of the Tilted Towers landing zone being removed, many players have been expecting a big update to drop and shake up the map.
Unfortunately, for those expecting a game-changing patch, update 3.4.4 (known as 1.53 on PS4) is only intended to fix a crash issue that was occurring. Despite its giant size, the Fortnite 10GB update has no other purpose.
PS4 players: A patch is coming tomorrow at 3am ET (0700 GMT) to fix a crash that was occurring.
No downtime is required.
