Fortnite Battle Royale players are waiting eagerly to see the impacts of Rift Beacons and the potential return of some highly popular points of interest, but has the patch to bring them back been delayed?

Seasoned veterans of the battle royale title, particularly those that follow the game’s official Twitter account, will be aware by now that during the course of Season 10 we’ve come to expect an announcement of update release times every Monday. 

However, that wasn’t the case on September 9 as information on the v10.30 patch never came. So, where is it and what can we expect?

Fan-favorite POIs coming back to Fortnite?

Previously in Season 10, there had been a delay to patch v10.10. The common denominator between the upcoming update and the one previous is that major map changes look to be in the works – bringing back Retail Row in the past – and even more are expected this time around.

Two new Rift Beacons have activated at Paradise Palms and on the frozen lake in the snow biome, meaning there’s a very high chance that the return of both Greasy Grove and Moisty Mire is on the cards.

The end of Borderlands in Fortnite

With such a major change being made to the map, it’s fairly possible that this might have caused a delay for Epic Games. 


The theorists among us might point towards the ending of the Borderlands crossover, which saw a brand new Pandora Rift Zone added to the desert biome, and suggest that the delay could be a result of adding some fresh IT Chapter Two content – a crossover that’s been teased with some big clues already.

Possible v10.30 patch release date

Nevertheless, as the Borderlands event draws to a close and with two old locations seemingly coming back all inside a weekly update, there’s a good chance that patch v10.30 will have to wait until September 11 to be added to the game. 

Once we know when it’s coming, though, we’ll be the first to let you know.
