Fortnite’s latest patch, update 2.55, is hitting the game today. Epic has recently released the official patch notes for the update. The Love and War mode is now live, sending you off to Search and Destroy your enemies. Launch Pads are back, in non-competitive playlists, and the Chaos physics engine has arrived in the game.

Fortnite Update 2.55 v11.50 Patch Notes

v11.50 brings a new event and more to Battle Royale! The changes in this update include: 

  • Love and War has begun!
    • Play the new, community-made Search and Destroy LTM.
    • Includes new Challenges that can be completed for special rewards.
    • For all the details, read our Love and War post here.
  • In non-competitive playlists, the Launch Pad has been unvaulted.
  • Implemented Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system, mentioned previously here.
    • At launch, our goal is to ensure that Fortnite still feels like what you would expect. We’ll be closely monitoring your feedback from the in-game Feedback tool for any issues you may be experiencing. 
    • To report issues via the in-game Feedback tool, select Feedback in the main menu and choose Bug. We encourage you to put “Physics” in the subject line and include a concise message in the body that accurately describes the issue(s) you’re experiencing.

Bug fixes:

  • Resolved an issue involving some players’ completion of the “Search chests in a single match” Chaos Rising Challenge not being saved.
  • The “Earn Gold Scavenger Medals” Rippley vs. Sludge Overtime Challenge now tracks progress properly.
  • The Sidegrading feature is no longer present in competitive playlists. Its presence in these playlists was unintentional, as noted in our v11.40 post.

  • Addressed reports of iOS players activating their device’s swipe-up feature when trying to press inventory buttons.
