Fortnite patch notes v10.40.1 for Season X: Out of Time has released, and with it has come an extension of Season X, new props, and some returning items to the weekly store. Season X already brought us the B.R.U.T.E Mech Suit, a two-person vehicle with a wide array of weapons and maneuverability, along with a few fan-favorite weapons returning to the rotation.
Most importantly for players, Fortnite Season X has been extended an additional week. The extension will last from Tuesday, Oct 8 at 9:00 a.m. until Sunday, Oct 13 at 2:00 p.m. Along with this, players will gain access to an overtime mission called Out of Time. Players can use this to earn end-of-season rewards like XP, cosmetics, and a special Season X loading screen. The Gotham City and the Batman Caped Crusader Pack will join this extension, remaining available until the end of the season.
