Fortnite leaker and data miner ShiinaBR has revealed that the v19.10 will not release tomorrow. This is most likely because it hasn’t been added to the staging servers yet. While they speculate on another new content update, they are assuming that the update might drop next Tuesday. Coincidentally, that day will also mark the return of Tilted Towers and its anniversary in the game.

This news was further confirmed by leaker HYPEX as well. They say that the update is coming on Tuesday, 18 January.

The update will feature some new weather changes such as tornadoes and lightning storms in the game. All of these new elements are designed to alter gameplay significantly and cause damage to players when encountered. This was confirmed by the leaker HYPEX on their Twitter posts. Furthermore, the Chapter 3 trailer also hints towards these elements coming in soon to the game.

Furthermore, new leaks also suggest that there might be a new Flare gun added to the game with this update. The Flare Gun was last seen in Chapter 2 as a weapon that could deal a good amount of damage upon impact and also start a fire in the immediate surrounding areas. This time, the gun might come back with some new tweaks and additions.

With the conclusion of Winterfest, the holiday-themed decorations and elements are slowly fading away from Fortnite. The snow has started melting from the map in stages and each stage is unlocking some new content for the fans. It is expected that by the sixth stage, i.e., on Tuesday, fans might finally see the return of the Tilted Towers.
