We know that the v8.20 update will bring a brand new LTM called “The Floor is Lava”. Epic teased the release of the new LTM via the in-game news feed when the Item Shop updated. The description of the LTM reads, “Get to high ground or build above the lava that’s overtaking the island.”
As well as the new LTM, we know that the v8.20 patch will bring a host of bug fixes. Sean Hamilton, community coordinator at Epic Games, stated in a reply to Reddit that were would be a large number of bug fixes. The bug fixes were listed although it’s possible not all of them will make it in this update. You can check out the full list of potential v8.20 bug fixes here.
