There’s been a lot of things going on this week for Fortnite. Not only does the game have a new entry in it called Chapter 2, but there are plenty of new mechanics, vehicles, a handful of new weapons, and a brand new battle pass. Players who take part in the battle pass are going to gain access to a variety of unique costumes, emotes, and special in-game cosmetic items. Epic Games posted the most recent patch notes for hotfix 2.40.
Fortnite 2.40 Patch Notes
The patch notes cover a handful of issues and problems some players encountered during the first day the game came back online. It had been gone for roughly 48 hours, stuck in a black hole. When it came out, not everything was the same, and some players were having issues.
Here are the latest patch notes for the game:

Another considerable issue plenty of players on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and occasionally on PC was the incorrect screen format. It made the screen look cropped, forcing players to go into their settings to modify how things looked. We had an article over here discussing how to correct this, and what steps players needed to take. If you’re still encountering this issue, make sure to check it out right now and make sure you can see your whole screen correctly.
