Fortnite v14.20 patch notes: Wolverine boss and BTS event are coming
Fortnite update v14.20 is here, and we’re one step closer to closing out season 4’s massive Marvel invasion. This patch includes some important bug fixes, and adds new features: A new boss character and a new concert event for Party Royale are our biggest highlights. But all of that pales in comparison to one major Marvel character addition.
Epic still isn’t great about providing official descriptions of exactly what updates entail, so here’s everything we know about the Fortnite v14.20 patch notes.
Fortnite patch notes v14.20: Marvel’s Blade is coming
One of the first Marvel heroes to hit the silver screen in the modern era, the vampire Blade is set to arrive in Fortnite sometime during the 14.20 update. Blade, you’ll remember, was originally played by Wesley Snipes in aa trilogy that began in 1998. Only The Matrix better exemplified the late ’90s obsession with leather, tiny sunglasses, and black trenchcoats.
Marvel announced last year that Blade would return in the modern MCU, played by Mahershala Ali. Ali previously played Cottonmouth on Luke Cage. In Fortnite, meanwhile, the release of Blade was an unconfirmed rumor, first teased in Epic’s unofficial patch notes email.
Marvel’s official Twitter account, however, tweeted out this string of emojis Wednesday morning, and if that isn’t a blatant Blade teaser, I don’t know what is.

We currently don’t know what exact time Blade will arrive in Fortnite, but since he’s part of the 14.20 update, it’s reasonable to expect him sometime in the very near future.

Fortnite patch notes v14.20: Wolverine boss being added
Just in time for his final few challenges, Wolverine will appear on the Fortnite map in Weeping Woods as a boss character that players can eliminate for some high-tier loot dubbed “Wolverine’s Claw.”
“Like other bosses on the map, he won’t go down without a fight,” Epic has teased.
Wolverine follows in Doctor Doom’s and Iron Man’s footsteps as Marvel characters that players can actively hunt down for some great weapons and abilities. Odds are eliminating Wolverine (or performing some other task in the same area) will factor into the final Wolverine skin challenge.
Fortnite patch notes v14.20: All the new cosmetics and skins
A slew of new skins are being added over the course of the Fortnite v14.20 update. Data miners like the ever-reliable HYPEX have uncovered them. Take a look below.

Most interestingly, the Victoria Saint skin description reads “vampire hunter of the Old West.” That seems like a pretty obvious connection to the upcoming Blade skin that’ll get added, but it also just makes me want to read American Vampire again.
