Fortnite Patch Notes 11.20


After spending the first few weeks of Fortnite Chapter 2 wandering in the dark, patch notes have returned. It felt a little odd that we were not getting patch notes each week, but everything seems to be back to normal now.

One of the biggest things in Fortnite Update 11.20 is the return of daily challenges. It would seem that the community’s worries about Battle Pass grind have been listened to, and extra challenge can be complete for XP. Three challenges will be made available each day, and they can be replaced with other challenges.

Lockers can now be filtered by Season, making it easier to find those old items and skins that you unlocked. For the PC version, DirectX 12 support is now available. According to an accompanying blog post, Season 1 is also being extended until Feb. 2020, giving you lots of time to finish grinding that Battle Pass.

You can find the full patch notes below.
