To enforce the work for the update, the Fortnite servers have been taken offline. As per the post on Twitter, Fortnite servers started a maintenance from 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST while Epic is working with the game’s 6.0 update.

One of the obvious changes for the Fortnite Season 6 update is the new horror theme to the game named as “Darkness Rises”, it seems to be an early preparation for the upcoming Halloween. There are also 100 unlockable levels for the Battle Pass, and a lot of spooky items for users, like an awesome-looking werewolf skin, and a lot more.
There are also huge map changes like a haunted castle, corrupted areas, corn fields, and a floating island at Loot Lake, giving the players a new range of adventure. Players can also get the “Shadow Stones,” a consumable resource that will make you become invisible as long as you are stationary, but with a great toll, you are unable to use weapons while the effect is active.
Shadow Stones grants players the ability to phase through objects making you untraceable and you won’t have to worry about fall damage, you can also move quicker. Weapons like the Impulse Grenade, Suppressed Submachine Gun, Light Machine Gun, Bouncer, and Remote Explosives are temporarily not accessible, but some of the weapons got some tweaks bringing a more powerful and efficient impact.
