The party's over

Update 17.20 will arrive in Fortnite this week after an extended period with the latest update.

As the Invasion takes over the island, players are exploring all of the out-of-this-world content on offer. The Cosmic Summer Celebration may be over, but the UFOs are still partying hard.

This update may have a big impact on the map and we may see the Lebron James skin added!

Here are the patch notes for the 17.20 update in Fortnite.

Release Date

The next update is expected to arrive on the 20th July 2021.

This is due to the fact that we have challenges up until week 6 for Season 7 and usually Epic will update the game once they've run out of weekly content.

However, there is a possibility it arrived on the 13th July.

Maintenance traditionally begins at the following times:

  • 12.30 AM PT

  • 2.30 PM CT

  • 3.30AM ET

  • 8.30AM BST

  • 9.30AM CEST

  • 4.30PM JST

  • 5.30PM AEST

  • 7.30PM NZST


Usually, the update ranges between 1-5GB, depending on the content in the update.

Here's the sizes for the most recent update.

  • Xbox One - 3.2GB
  • Xbox Series X - 2.9GB
  • PS4 - 4.13GB
  • PS5 - 3.2GB
  • PC - 2.2GB
  • Switch - 1GB
  • Android - 2GB
Patch Notes


Here are some updates and new features that may arrive in the new update:

  • A 'Keep Playing Together' button for Squads, Trios and Duos - via @HYPEX


There will be brand new skins added to the mix as well as updates to old ones. The stand out skin is the Lebron James skin coming in the next update.

We're also getting a Summer Rippley skin too.


According to Hypex, we may finally see the Cowinator weapon arrive. This weapon allows you to lift and throw objects, vehicles and players. It can be purchased for 600 gold from NPCs.


It sounds like Coral Castle will be destroyed in the next update or at some stage during 17.20.

Speculation is also rising that there will be an underground POI.
