Fortnite update 13.40 patch notes: Joyride update changes, updates and more

The latest Epic update is now live on all platforms, bringing the game up to version 13.40 and introducing more features for gamers looking to enjoy the Battle Royale in wholly new ways

.Fortnite cars have finally been added to the title after months of speculation and waiting around by fans, ever since the files for the cars were discovered in an old update.

Players were promised "new ways to get around" as far back as the Season 3 teaser hitting the servers, and vehicles have been teased in various ways since then too.

Now, in the Joyride update, Fortnite has finally added cars as well as a slew of other features – and you can see all the patch notes, from Trello (via Games Guides ) below.

At the time of writing, there are no formal Epic Games patch notes out in the wild, so this is the best we have for now
