Fortnite v21.20 update delayed by a day and here’s why

The Fortnite community was desperately waiting for the v21.20 update. However, it won’t arrive on July 5, 2022 as there’s an unexpected delay.

Amidst the community’s sky-scraping expectations, Fortnite has delayed the v21.20 update. From its new release date to early patch notes, here’s everything we know about the upcoming patch so far.

To say the least, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a roller coaster ride until now. While the map changes have been brilliant, the game has been really unstable with Unreal Engine 5. Moreover, there haven’t been enough ways for players to steadily level up their Battle Pass and unlock skins like Darth Vader.

Fortnite community expects more No Sweat Summer content in v21.20 update

This explains why loopers eagerly await updates as they contain a ton of content such as bug fixes, new quests, and events. However, the v21.20 update that should have been released today has been delayed by a day.

Fortnite Cash Cups to take place on July 5 instead of the v21.20 update

From leakers to content creators to casuals, almost everyone in the community missed an announcement by Fortnite regarding this season’s Cash Cups.

Apparently, Round 2 Duos Cash Cup and Duos Contender & Open Hype Cups are taking place on July 5 instead of July 6 because of game updates arriving around the same time. This clearly indicates that the v21.20 update will now be released on July 6.

This is in contrast to Fortnite’s previous announcement in which the developers wanted pros to keep an eye on the Temple Bloom landmark. Loopers spotted a Reality Root there, which has always led to significant map changes.

From the looks of it, v21.20 was originally scheduled for July 5 as Fortnite has been constantly releasing updates on Tuesdays. It is certainly surprising that the developers have broken this pattern already.

What to expect from Fortnite v21.20 in Chapter 3 Season 3?

Even though Epic Games itself talked about the changes in Temple Bloom, leakers haven’t discovered anything related to it in the files. What’s more startling is the fact that the upcoming themes for Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound are already here.

Apart from map changes, Indiana Jones and his cosmetics will become available from July 7, 2022. This also means that loopers will have new quests to complete which include a new set of Weekly and Vibin’ challenges.

Last but not least, the Battle Royale modes should finally get some No Sweat Summer content including NPCs (Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby) and Surfboards. The new release date for v21.20 should be July 6, 2022, and the downtime should begin around 4 PM ET and 9 PM BST.

Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more

Fortnite v21.20 is right around the corner. From Indiana Jones to new content for the 2022 No Sweat Summer event, there’s a lot to expect.

Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, and other content that should arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Fortnite is all set to release the 21.20 update on July 6, 2022. Indiana Jones will finally become available in the Battle Pass, No Sweat Summer content will arrive in Battle Royale modes, and as usual, the Reality Tree will continue to grow.

The community has sky-scraping expectations from Fortnite v21.20. Even though map changes have been frequent and brilliant in Chapter 3 Season 3, the No Sweat Summer event and the XP system (in terms of more opportunities to earn XP) certainly need improvement.

Here’s everything players can expect in the second major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite Reality Tree to affect Condo Canyon, Sleepy Sound, and Temple Bloom in v21.10

First and foremost, the Reality Tree will reach major locations like Sleepy Sound. Loopers have discovered a new set of roots near Shifty Shafts and they’re most likely heading towards Sleepy.

Another location where we will see the influence of the Reality Tree is Condo Canyon. Interestingly, leakers have already revealed the upcoming themes. Like Butter Bloom and Logjam Lotus, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon will have recurring themes which include:

  • Froniter
  • Coliseum
  • Coral Castle
  • Neo Tillted for Sleepy Sound and Lazy Lagoon for Condo Canyon

There’s a Reality Root near the Temple Bloom landmark as well. HYPEX has revealed that one of the themes in Temple Bloom is codenamed The Tower in the files, and that’s the only information we have for now.

There’s a possibility that v21.20 only focuses on Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound as the developers are yet to add the updated version of Temple Bloom in the files.

New Indiana Jones skin and temple to arrive in Fortnite v21.20

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. It cannot be unlocked at the moment, and will be available from July 7, 2022. Loopers who own the Battle Pass wil have to complete special quests to unlock the cosmetics which include:

  • Indiana Jones outfit
  • Indiana Jones Banner Icon
  • Raider’s Relics Harvesting Tool
  • Rogue Archaology Wrap
  • Expedition Bag Back Bling

It is worth noting that these are the cosmetics on Page 1. These will not only become unlockable with v21.20, but you’ll also be able to get a look at the next page.

Even though this might be a stretch, but many players believe that Indiana Jones will get his own spawn location. The aforementioned Temple Bloom POI could turn into a temple dedicated for the Indiana Jones boss/NPC. However, readers must take this claim with a huge grain of salt.

New No Sweat Summer content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

The Island Hopper quests were decent, but players were disappointed to see them as the only ‘summer event’ content. However, leakers like iFireMonkey and Epic Games itself have claimed that more summer content is coming.

NPcs like Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby, and vehicles like Surfboards will return to BR modes. Moreover, you can look forward to completing summer-themed quests in Battle Royale that should grant XP and free cosmetics.

Battle Royale content will certainly help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 one of the best summer events in Fortnite’s history.

Luke Skywalker NPC

Epic Games has released a ton of Star-Wars content in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 which includes Darth Vader as a boss and his skin in the Battle Pass as a tier 100 reward. HYPEX has disclosed that there’s a Lightsaber in the files for a Luke NPC.

Based on the leak, it is safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be released as an NPC and a skin, like this father. However, it is uncertain if he’ll be a part of the upcoming update.

Last but not least, weekly quests for Week 5/ Week 6 and Vibin’ quests will be added to files with Fortnite v21.20. There aren’t any solid leaks regarding weapons as we’ve already received three new weapons (Two-Shot shotgun, Hammer AR, and DMR) this season.

Fortnite v21.30 will release on July 19, 2022 following which Epic Games will take a summer break that will take place between July 24 and August 12.

Fortnite v21.20 update to introduce new No Sweat Summer challenges, NPCs, and skins

Fortnite will release the v21.20 update on July 5, 2022 and players can look forward to enjoying some new No Sweat Summer content in it.

Published

After hyping up the No Sweat Summer event, Fortnite simply released some Creative challenges for XP. However, leaks suggest that new NPCs, cosmetics, and summer-themed challenges will arrive soon.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is all about Vibin’ and nothing suits this theme better than a humming summer event. However, No Sweat Summer 2022 has only revolved around the Firework Flare Gun and six Creative XP challenges so far.

It is evident that the player base isn’t satisfied with this year’s No Sweat Summer event. Fortunately, Epic Games itself teased more summer content and it should most likely be a part of the v21.20 or the v21.30 updates.

Fortnite promises ‘more summer vibes’ in a post about Island Hopper quests

Leaker iFireMonkey noticed that Epic Games’ official post about the Island Hopper quests states:

“Get vibin’ this summer in style! Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”

Clearly, Island Hopper quests aren’t the end of No Sweat Summer in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. However, for now, not a lot is known about the upcoming content.

Leakers have revealed that Epic Games will at least release Boardwalk Ruby, Summer Drift, and Unpeely as NPCs on the island. While the return of these fan favorites will be great, the arrival of Midsummer Midas and Summer Meowscles will be like icing on the cake.

iFireMonkey reported that the Battle Royale modes will soon have summer-themed challenges as well. It is worth noting that the developers began working on Surfboards with Chapter 3 Season 3, and they will also return soon.

When will Fortnite No Sweat Summer event 2022 begin?

Ideally, Fortnite should release the aforementioned content with v21.20 which is expected to release on July 6, 2022. Having said that, it is important to consider that Epic Games’ employees will be taking a summer break from July 24 to August 12.

Fortnite v21.30 should release ahead of this break on July 19, 2022. Because Epic Games won’t be able to roll out hotfixes or other things during the break, iFireMonkey believes that the 21.30 patch will be the most content-loaded update this season.

All in all, loopers can certainly keep their hopes high for the No Sweat Summer event in 2022. While NPCs, challenges, and vehicles have been confirmed by leakers, Epic Games never misses an opportunity to capitalize on event-based cosmetics.

To be fair, the Creative maps for Island Hopper quests are fairly entertaining and a fresh breath of air from the sweaty Battle Royale modes.
