A brand new patch update for Fortnite was deployed on Wednesday, June 15, the first patch since the release of Chapter 3 Season 3 a little over a week ago.
The update is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Android Devices, and PC. Players will be required to download and install the patch before they can continue playing Fortnite, as the update is a simple hotfix for various stability issues across every platform.
So, there’s no new content included in the June 15 Fortnite update, but various leakers have revealed that Epic Games will be releasing v21.10 next week. This will be the first major content update since the release of the latest season, but details on what Epic Games has in store for players are still unknown.

Fortnite Update 3.59 Officially Deployed On June 15
Thanks to the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, we know that a fresh update is now available for Fortnite players on all platforms. Although there appears to be no detailed changelog for the patch, Epic Games did state that the update is to “address stability issues”.
Players won’t notice any in-game changes, but it’s possible that the update does fix some lingering bugs and glitches that have been present since the launch of Chapter 3 Season 3.
The Fortnite Status Twitter account did also report that the following issues have been rectified with today’s patch:
- An issue with the DMR which was causing players who were crouched or close to objects they may aim down sights as if they were standing or see through the object.
The size of update 3.59 will vary depending on your platform, but PlayStation users are reporting a download size of a little over 1GB. Quite a large patch for simple “stability issues”. However, a hotfix update was also deployed yesterday morning, enabling the new ‘Grapple Gloves’ item.
So if you haven’t had the chance to jump in since yesterday’s hotfix, there is actually some new content waiting for you. After you’ve downloaded today’s patch, of course.
