Fortnite Update 18.20: Release Date: UK Time, Patch Notes and Everything You Need To Know

Voice chat has been added to Impostors in Fortnite 18.20.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 motors on and another patch is expected to be coming in the next few weeks.

Epic Games opted to move away from the intergalactic edge they offered to their hugely successful battle royale franchise during Season 7 for a more mysterious threat in The Sideways, with the return of the Cubes to match.

Anime favourite Naruto was also introduced via the Battle Pass, who has proved to be a popular addition to the series so far.

Despite the sweeping changes to Fortnite, the developers still feel it’s appropriate to introduce a patch to fix ongoing issues in the game.
