ORIGINAL: Fortnite developer Epic Games is launching update 14.20 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Android and Nintendo Switch.
Fortnite update 14.20 has been given a September 23 release date on all platforms. Fans can download the update from 9am BST UK time.
As a numbered update, version 14.20 will be accompanied by a period of server downtime from around 8.30am BST.
There’s no official end time for the server maintenance, but fans can expect it to last until around 11am BST.
The news was announced by Epic Games on Twitter: “A new update takes over. v14.20 is scheduled for tomorrow, September 23. Downtime will begin at 4 AM ET (08:00 UTC).”
In terms of patch notes, the new update will undoubtedly introduce new Marvel points of interest to the map. The previous patch added Stark Industries, so expect something similar with update 14.20.
Judging by the teaser tweet – and the recent appearance of Gatherer drones – update 14.20 could coincide with the appearance of Marvel villain Galactus.
Needless to say, it will also lay the foundations for the BTS and Rocket League events taking place this weekend.
