Fortnite v15.20 update: Release date and early patch notes

What we know so far about the Fortnite v15.20 update, including the possible release date and official early patch notes.
In the last big Fortnite update (v15.10), developer Epic Games added a tonne of goodies. Now, with the Operation Snowdown holiday season event coming to an end on 5th January 2021, the Fortnite v15.20 update is expected to drop very soon.

Here's what we know so far about the Fortnite v15.20 update, including the very early patch notes, a possible release date window, and more.

UPDATE: We are doing full live patch notes for the v.15.20 update.

Fortnite v15.20 release date

Epic Games has not announced the official release date for the Fortnite v15.20 update just yet.

The Fortnite v15.20 release date is 13th January with server downtime starting at 09:00 GMT.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes

While Epic Games has, for quite some time now, not released patch notes, the official Trello board is being updated by the developer.

A total of five fixes have been scheduled for "the next update" which means they essentially form part of the Fortnite v15.20 patch notes.

The Fortnite v15.20 patch notes, which simply includes fixes to some issues, are:

  • Total Bars may rarely appear as 0 in a match. (Battle Royale)
  • Rebooted players may see an already completed Bounty. (Battle Royale)
  • Total Bars may rarely appear as 0 in a match. (Battle Royale)
  • Michonne Outfit visual issue with Cape back blings. (General)
  • Quest progress not instantly updating in the HUD and Quest Log. (Save the World)

Now, onto the possible content coming with Fortnite v15.20.

 

Fortnite v15.20 new content

While there is no official word on the content we will see arriving with Fortnite v15.20, previous leaks have suggested new Exoctic weapons, including the Run Gun SMG and a Freeze AR might be heading to the game.

We might also see a new Bounty Hunter (as per the theme of Season 5) appear, as well as some map changes or new NPCs.

Then, there's the Colossal Coliseum POI, with changes which could be part of the Fortnite v15.20 content.

Fortnite dataminer and leaker, Mang0e, found changes to the Colossal Coliseum POI in the game's files since the v15.10 update. It appears the arena will feature two big ships and docks and will be filled with water.

At the time of writing, the new content coming with the Fortnite v15.20 update is simply speculation, based on previous leaks and rumours.

Thankfully, we won't have to wait long for the Fortnite v15.20 update to drop, with an expected release date between 6th and 8th January 2021.
