The Fortnite patch v17.50 is now live and it’s the final update in Season 7, with a new alien abduction, Wild Week 3 and new challenges in store

Epic Games has introduced the patch note v17.50 in Fortnite and it’s the final update before Season 7 ends. From a new abduction site to multiple in-game events, there is a lot gamers can expect from this update.

The Wild Week 3 of the invasion is called High Tech Hijinks, before the final Wild Week goes live. Also, the Fortnite developer has reduced the number of Epic Quests needed to unlock Superman’s additional rewards.

Corny Complex Abduction in Fortnite v17.50

Following the abduction of both Slurpy Swamp and Coral Castle, a third POI is going to be removed from the map. This will happen in three stages, and then the POI will appear in the Mothership.

Various dataminers have already leaked the POI, which the aliens will next abduct. Corny Complex, one of the biggest POIs, is next on the aliens’ radar. It has been a hot drop this season, and is one of the new POIs from Season 7.
