Although the v4.4.1 update will not require any downtime, there are still several things expected to be implemented with its launch.
The newest set of weekly challenges for Week 7 of Season 4 will likely be added to the game, although they have been already been leaked online several days earlier.
Furthermore, the highly anticipated Blockbuster challenge skin is expected to be coming to Fortnite with this update. According to leaks, the skin will be called ‘Visitor’ and have customizable features on the facial area of its helmet.
As far as an in-game adjustments or fixes go, there is a good chance that the Shopping Carts will be reinstated back into the game on Thursday.
The recently released Shopping Carts were temporarily disabled after the launch of update v4.4 due to ‘a vehicle related physics crash.” However, the Fortnite Community Trello page has the issue marked as “Fixed in Next Release,” which could very well mean v4.4.1.
