What's inside the Fortnite v12.60 update
While Epic Games haven't shared the full Fortnite patch notes for quite some time, the developer did provide fans with Fortnite v12.60 highlights.

The Fortnite v12.60 patch highlights include the following.
Spy Games LTM:
Operation: Infiltration is the newest Spy Games playlist and will arrive after the update at 9 AM ET. Extract the Intel Case from the defending team’s turf or prevent your case from reaching the invading team’s destination.
Battle Pass Decisions:
Reminder to finish up your Challenges for this season’s Battle Pass characters. Once the season ends, you won’t be able to pick Ghost and Shadow variants for your characters. Lock in your look for Maya, too.
Dynamic Resolution for iOS:
For iOS players, there’s a new opt-in feature to help you reach your targeted framerate. Dynamic Resolution adjusts the game's resolution automatically to maintain this targeted framerate. Dynamic Resolution can be turned on or off in the Video Settings menu on iOS.
Party Royale Update:
The Grappler and Jetpack arrive, and we've also made refinements to several existing attractions.
PC controller adjustments?
You might be wondering where the PC controller adjustments are, which has been a hot topic in the community for several weeks. Epic doesn't want to release these type of gameplay changes just before the FNCS Invitational Finals, which starts on 23rd May 2020.
The Fortnite PC controller adjustments are set to release next week, as epic continues to investigate, tweak and tune these adjustments.
Storm the Agency
It looks like clouds have started to form a circle over The Agency location on the map, which is likely teasing a Hurricane, possibly as part of the Doomsday event.
The list of challenges has also been revealed.
