Fortnite patch v15.10 releases early 15th December with downtime approximately starting at 4 AM ET (09:00 UCT). So far we’ve learned of a couple of patch notes regarding bug fixes, Winterfest 2020 leaks and the all-new Performance Mode.
Fortnite Status tweeted about Performance Mode changing the file size of the patch depending if you have it on or not, with a 23 GB difference between versions.
As a reminder, due to the addition of Performance Mode on PC, please note that the patch size on PC will be larger than normal for players who have high resolution textures installed (approx. 23 GB).https://t.co/uY3JTQPZwQ— Fortnite Status (@FortniteStatus) December 14, 2020

With leaks going from a full set of new skins to even suggesting the return of planes, we will keep you updated as the update rolls out with everything that was not already found before release.
Fortnite Performance Mode
As previously reported, Performance Mode has been confirmed as an option for all players with lower specs and less powerful hardware.
With the option to free up storage space and trading visuals for framerate, there is almost no excuse to pick up the most famous Battle Royale.

Epic Games provided the following chart with two examples, showing just how much this new option will really make a difference in the gamer’s experience.
