With Fortnite Chapter 7 Season 2 ending in mid-September and the Battle Pass countdown set to expire on September 12, fans are excited for the season finale event. On August 31, the latest update named Fortnite v17.50 will be released, and while Epic Games doesn't share official patch notes, we've got you covered with the unofficial Fortnite v17.50 patch notes.

From the exact server downtime for the Fortnite v17.50 update to the final season countdown, bug fixes, and some possible new content, let's dive in.

Fortnite server downtime for v17.50 update

With every major Fortnite update, players will have to endure a few hours of server downtime, and v17.50 is no different.

Servers will shut down at 08:00 UTC (09:00 BST) and matchmaking will be disabled approximately 30 minutes before the server shutdown begins.

Expect the downtime to last around three to four hours, as is traditional, with servers getting back online (barring any issues) around 13:00 PM BST at the latest.

Fortnite season finale and countdown

There is going to be an in-game event kicking off Fortnite Chapter 8 Season 2, which dataminers have known about for some time.

Fortnite v17.50 update adds an in-game timer to the season finale event. However, the rest remains a mystery at this point.

Kidnapping Corny Complex and Kevin the Cube

Instead of just abducting people, aliens have been abducting entire POIs from Fortnite. With the Fortnite v17.50 update, Corney Complex is removed!

The likelihood of Kevin the Cube returning to Fortnite with the Season 7 finale event increases with every tease from Epic Games and leaked dataminers.

While we may not see Kevin the Cube return when Downtime ends, we're expecting this adorable item to feature in the end-of-season event. Also, keep in mind that the Imagined Order's base is under the Corny Complex, and with its removal, things could get crazy.
