This downtime is, as usual, expected to last anywhere between one and three hours depending on a variety of technical factors.
Wolverine coming to Fortnite
Weapon X, aka Wolverine, is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale with update v14.20.
Wolverine is a new boss coming to the game, and defeating him will provide players with a mythic item granting them the Wolverine claws power in Fortnite.

Wolverine will be found in Weeping Woods, the same area where you found the claw marks during the Wolverine's awakening quest.
The following weapons have been faulted:
- Rare Scoped Assault Rifle
- Uncommon Scoped Assault Rifle
There is also a new Limited-Time Mode (LTM) coming to Fortnite with the v14.20 update. This new LTM is called Takeover.
A description of the Takeover LTM reads: "Earn points by capturing and holding outposts in a new Marvel-themed game mode.
"During your island domination, you'll start with a random primary superpower and see comets in the sky dropping more powers of all types to build your perfect loadout".
Fortnite events with v14.20
You might already know how K-Pop supergroup BTS will be coming to Fortnite in the form of a Party Royale showcase. BTS will debut their new “Dynamite” choreography video on Fortnite: Party Royale on Friday 25th September at 8 pm ET.

Fortnite's third birthday celebration is also coming up, and leaks have already revealed birthday-themed wraps. Epic notes they have something special lined up for the weekend, including more challenges to earn XP, as well as new rewards, and cake...
In celebration of Rocket League going free-to-play on the Epic Games Store, there will also be a Llama-Rama event.
This will reward players that decide to jump into Rocket League once it becomes free-to-play, rewarding them with cosmetic goodies.
Fortnite Blade tease
In the creator's update notes, as shared by HYPEX on Twitter, Epic Games have teased the iconic, vampire-slaying character Blade.
There are a total of nine letters in the patch notes as red as blood, and they spell out Daywalker.

Daywalker is a name used for Blade in both the comics and films staring Wesley Snipes. This tease makes it quite clear how Blade is coming to Fortnite.
However, it isn't clear if Blade will appear sometime in v14.20 or if this is just a tease by Epic Games for a future update.
