Fortnite v12.60 update has finally been rolled out on 20th May 2020 after a minor unexpected delay yesterday. The Fortnite update prior to v12.60 brought in a series of major changes in the game, including the introduction of Party Royale Gamemode, the "Heavy Sniper" nerf and the revival of OG 'Risky Reels'.

With each update, the Fortnite storyline moves forward. Among a list of things that the Fortnite community expects with the v12.60 update are the fate of the 'Doomsday device' and a sneak peek at what Midas' plan for the future.
