Fortnite 17.20 Update

It didn't come last week, and might not this week either, but we're still expecting the Fortnite 17.20 update at some point soon.

We'd expect more POI's on the map to change, following Holly Hedges, and the aliens to play even more of a role in Fortnite's world.

We're sure more weapons and items will be included as part of the update, but we don't know what they are yet.

As soon as the 17.20 update is officially revealed or some details leak, we'll be sure to let you know.
