The Fortnite servers are down and that means a new Fortnite update is coming. What Fortnite patch v16.20 will bring, you can find out here.
It's been two weeks since the first major update of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6. We haven't had many content updates since Fortnite Season 6 launched, but that's about to change.
Let's take a look at the downtime and patch notes of Fortnite Update 16.20.

The downtime for the v16.20 Fortnite update starts earlier than most updates today. Epic stated that the downtime for this update will be longer than the downtime we've had with past updates. The servers went down at 08:00 AM CET and will probably be available again around 11:00 AM CET at the latest.

Since the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, content creators have not received any official patch notes, leaving us mostly in the dark. However, the official Fortnite Status account on Twitter published a few hints about what's coming next.

New Car Wheels
One of the new features that we will get with Fortnite update v16.20 is new wheels for vehicles. It was leaked some time ago that Epic is working on modifications for cars. On the Fortnite status account, it says "Trick out your ride with new wheels". These wheels will probably let you make better progress off the roads in Fortnite and on different surfaces.
Special Bow Duo Cup
A special duos cup was also announced. "Sharpen those bow skills and focus up for a special Duos Cup" the tweet reads.
50-player matchmaking in creative mode
Creative players will be happy to know that 50-player matchmaking will be available in Fortnite's Creative Mode with today's patch. Other than that, it looks like that's all we'll be getting in the v16.20 update.
