Many players have been waiting for jetpacks in Fortnite after it was revealed some three months ago that they will be added to this popular battle royale title. The wait is finally over for them today as Epic has now added jetpacks in Fortnite. The developer confirmed in a tweet that the update which brings this much-awaited addition to the title will be rolling out today.

It was first revealed some three months ago through a datamine that jetpacks will be coming to Fortnite. While the datamine suggested that they are linked to a new limited-time mode called Close Encounters, the game’s news section mentions that jetpacks in Fortnite will only be available for a limited time.

Speculation suggested that the mode may be related to a rather interesting combination of jetpacks and shotguns. Epic hasn’t provided any clarification on that just yet, though.

Jetpacks in Fortnite will be coming with the v4.2 content update that will be released for the title today at 8 am ET. There’s going to be no server downtime while this update is rolled out.

“Strap in and blast off with Jetpacks in the v4.2 Content Update,” Epic Games confirmed on the official Twitter account for Fortnite.
