Fortnite Update for July 12

Epic Games has released a new Fortnite update for July 12 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and Android devices (sorry, PlayStation gamers), which is once again to fix stability issues in the game. Read up on what’s new from Epic Games’ official announcement.

Fortnite Update for July 12 Patch Notes:

Here’s the latest announcement from Epic Games:

We’ve released a maintenance patch on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and Android devices to address stability issues.

The patch will be downloaded the next time you launch the game.

While the PlayStation versions didn’t get a new patch today, Sony’s consoles did get one last week, which was for stability as well. As for issues the game is currently suffering from, here are some of the confirmed stuff Epic Games is looking at (via the official Fortnite Trello board).

General Top Issues:

Friend Accepted notifications may repeatedly show on launch for some players (Fixed in Future Game Update)

Some players may crash when near a Timber Tree that gets chopped down (Fixed in Future Game Update)

Players are getting a blue lobby background (In development)

Workaround: Changing the language to another language and back again, or relaunching Fortnite, or simply playing a match and returning to the lobby should update the lobby background

Battle Royale:

  • ‘Obi-Wan’s Message’ Emote Playing in English instead of the selected Language for some players (Investigating)


On Epic Games Launcher, click the 3 dots beside ‘Fortnite’
Select Options
Tick all languages
Click Apply
Download the Update and then launch the game.

Save the World:

Player running animations (Investigating)
