Fortnite update v12.60 is now live. Initially the Fortnite update was expected to release on 19th of May 2020 but was pushed back to 20th of May due to unknown reasons.

Along with a few major bug fixes (mentioned later on), the new update features new skins and cosmetics while new challenges have also been dropped around the battle royale island for players to complete and claim free rewards.

While there are no major map changes with this Fortnite update, the POI's name now has a bold black store to better highlight them on the in-game map menu.


Players unable to queue for Fortnite through matchmaking

Since the 12.60 update went live, players from around the world have reported being unable queue up for matchmaking in Battle Royale. Players have been recieving error messages titled "All buses are headed out" or "Not the Llama you are looking for".

Since the issue is fairly new, there is no update from Epic Games or Fortnite twitter regarding the issue.
