Fortnite fans are counting down to the release of update 23.20 on PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Android. The new Fortnite update has a January 18 release date and a 9am GMT UK launch time. It will be accompanied by a period of server downtime, which begins when matchmaking is disabled at 8.30am GMT. Only the second major update of the season, 23.20 is shaping up to be a big one.

Indeed, according to a teaser posted by Epic Games on Twitter, the rumoured Falcon Scout drone will make an appearance as part of update 23.20.

“Did you know? Hawks aren’t real and are actually secret surveillance drones,” reads a Fortnite tweet. “Downtime for 23.20 begins at 4 AM ET, and matchmaking will be disabled shortly beforehand.”

Fortnite insider Hypex has also shed some light on potential new features coming to Fortnite. 

There’s a chance we’ll see a Dead Space collaboration ahead of the remake’s launch in the coming weeks.

Speaking of skins, it’s believed the Rift Warden Stellan Skin will make an appearance alongside Doom Slayer outfit and the next Crew cosmetic.

It’s also possible we’ll be treated to concert items for The Kid Laroi in-game gig coming soon.
