Fortnite fans can download a brand new patch this morning as update 17.21 arrives on PC, consoles and mobile devices.

Fortnite update 17.21 will be launched alongside a period of server downtime on July 27.

Services will shut down at 8:30 a.m. BST before the game goes completely offline at 9:00 a.m. GMT.

Server maintenance is expected to take a few hours and will be back online between 10:30 AM and 11:00 AM BST.

“Take the power… of science!” reads an epic tweet. “Fortnite v17.21 is scheduled for release on July 27. In preparation for the update, services will be disabled from approximately 03:30 AM ET (07:30 UTC).”

Judging by the tweet, Epic Games will finally add the Gravity Gun to Fortnite Battle Royale.

The new weapon was teased in the Season 7 launch trailer, before being added to the game files as part of last week’s update.

In addition to the new weapon, Epic will likely make a few gameplay changes as well as a selection of bug fixes.

You can see the early Fortnite update 17.21 patch notes below.
