Fortnite has just introduced another new patch – but it’s shaking up the game in some unexpected ways.
Patch 1.72 was just released on August 16, intending to fix some issues with the game’s recent 5.21 patch.

As of yet, Epic Games has not issued any official statements or social media posts regarding the new patch. However, the unannounced update could possibly be related to the numerous server crashes reported by players following the release of patch 5.21 on August 15.
In a statement, Epic Games said: ‘We’re aware of an increase in crashes in Battle Royale since the release of v5.21. We’ve identified the issue and are working towards a fix. We’ll update you once we have more information. Update – The following platforms have received a client update to resolve the increase in crashes related to patch v5.21: PC, Mac, Android, PS4.’
Epic Games also hasn’t issued any official patch notes for the recent Fortnite update, though it appears to likely consist of just bug fixes and other minor changes to the game.
The new update was released sometime between 11pm EST on August 15 and 12am EST on August 16 and is thought to be about 323.3 MB in size.
Fortnite’s Save the World mode has also updated recently.
