New Fortnite Update Today: v14.20 Time & Server downtime status


Epic Games have announced the update time (release date) and server downtime status information for today’s new Fortnite update, v14.20.


Epic have done a good job this season with the launch of the new season along with their first major update for season 4. The v14.10 update brought a bunch of new features along with a massive map change with Stark Industries being added to the Fortnite map.

Not only that, Epic added an Iron Man boss which increased the amount of mythic items/weapons available for players to use. Prior to the update, there were four different mythic superhero abilities. Iron Man drops two different abilities bringing the total to six.

We also had two new Marvel LTMs, Marvel Standoff and Marvel knockout. Both of these LTMs provide players with a way to use even more mythic Marvel superpowers which aren’t available in the normal Fortnite game modes. Players can use Venom’s abilities along with Storm and Wolverine. If you haven’t played the new Marvel LTMs yet, we’d suggest you do so.
