Fortnite Patch Delayed, But New Chicken Dance Emote Available Now

Update: The new Fortnite patch has been delayed due to Epic’s discovery of an unspecified issues. Related to this, some quests might not work as expected, Epic said.

The original story follows below.

Fortnite continues to get new updates. Developer Epic Games announced today on Twitter that the battle royale game’s next update is coming on May 15.

Version 4.2 will arrive tomorrow starting at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET, and there will be some downtime associated with it. However, Epic did not specify how long the downtime will last. The patch is expected for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and we’ll circle back with the patch notes when they are made available.

In other Fortnite news, Epic has added yet another dance emote. This one is called the Chicken Emote, and it really looks like Gob’s wonderful dance from Arrested Development. You can see the dance in action in the video above.

As with other Fortnite emotes and skins, the Chicken Emote will only be available for a limited time.

Tomorrow’s Fortntie patch appears to be the one that will remove the Infinity Gauntlet mode from the game. This mode gives you a chance to play as Avengers: Infinity War bad guy Thanos. A recent patch made him easier to kill, though he remains extremely deadly.
