Fortnite 10.40.1 Patch Notes Update: Season 11 delay, Out Of Time Challenges

Epic Games has today released a new Fortnite update and with it the new patch notes for today's v10.40.1 release.

There's not a whole load of changes, but Season 10 (X) is also coming to and end.

To help pass the time, Fortnite have revealed some overtime challenges and skins to help keep us busy.
