Epic Games has released the full patch notes for update v.4.3.0, and fans will be excited to see that not one but two limited time modes have been added.

Some may be disappointed to see that the ‘Playground’ practice LTM is not one of the new modes added, but that should be on the way soon.

For now, there is the return of the fan favorite ‘Blitz’ mode – which speeds up the whole match process, with faster storms, better loot and more high-paced action – and an entirely new mode which features five teams of 20.

Blitz mode has been changed slightly from its previous version, adding new weapons and items like the port-a-fort, as well as lowering the physical height of the bus, to allow players to drop in faster. There is also squad options for Blitz, as opposed to solo only.

20v20 mode is even more exciting, obviously taking inspiration from 50v50 (which is likely the most popular LTM in Fortnite so far) it puts another twist on the standard Battle Royale, and should make players feel like they are part of a small army.

What is particularly intriguing about this mode is that all five teams of 20 will now have their very own battle bus when dropping in, “to make it easier to drop together.”

The patch notes also say that chests and supply drops will spawn extra ammo and consumables – presumably to share around your now larger team.

Each team of 20 will get its own battle bus in new LTM 20v20

Check out the full information on the the two new LTM’s added in v.4.3.0 below.

In their latest blog post, Epic Games confirmed that Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive in the Fortnite item shop on November 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET/ 11PM GMT/ 9AM AEST.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.
