Fortnite has only recently received a major update and Epic has already announced another one. Patch 14.20 will be released soon and it will also be a big update.
The Fortnite patch v14.20 has been applied to the test servers. This means that the new update could be live already this week or next week at the latest. There will be some big changes. Among them, new bosses, new POI's, new mythical weapons, new skins and much more. Will it be released on time? Well, that's always the question we ask Epic. Our guess: maybe a 70 percent chance!
With the spooky holidays just around the corner, it's time for Fortnite's annual Halloween event, "Fortnitemares". As we know Epic, the map will again be decorated appropriately with spider webs and ghosts and other objects. There will also be a new section in the store dedicated to "Spooky Skins".
A new skin is already leaked, the Dark Skully Skin.
In the future, there might be more new creepy skins as well as old ones like the OG Skulltrooper in the Item Shop.
Various Fortnite Updates
There are some rumors circulating on the web. The first one is that Epic might upgrade the Battle Bus. The blueprint for this is available on a whiteboard at Stark Industries, an in-game hint!
The second is that Risky Reels is to be converted into Risky Reels Cafe. This could happen at any time and without prior notice.
Thirdly, since Rocket League will now be free to play on all platforms, players will be able to redeem a free reward due to the collaboration between the two game's developers.
Wolverine will probably appear as the mythical boss in Battle Royale mode. With him, there will probably also be a new mythical weapon. What could be better suited for this than his sharp claws?
Other Minor Updates and Bug Fixes
Fortnite Battle Royale celebrates its third birthday on September 26. And of course, some cool weapon skins have already been leaked. We can expect more birthday skins and birthday challenges to go along with the already leaked skins.
There is also the possibility that a Black Panther, Venom and Spiderman Skin will be released. The Panther statue added with the last update strongly suggests this to be true.
And finally, Epic will of course fix some bugs that have crept into the game. On their official Trello Board you can find the following bugs:
- Heroes Park and Ghost House do not count as discovered places after they have been discovered.
- Fishing spots cannot be displayed on the PC if the effects are set to low.
- Fishing spots can also not be displayed on the Nintendo Switch and Android.
- Redline Ramirez' Commander Perk does not work properly with loaded sniper rifles (Save the World).
The patch will include many interesting events and skins as well as minor bug fixes to improve the game. Unfortunately, with the new Save the World update, the game will no longer be playable on Mac OS X, as Apple has prevented Epic from patching its games on this platform due to the on-going legal battle.
