  • Festive Falls 2 – is packed with various hazard and brave bends, which is unlocked once you reach Platinum I in ranked racing.
  • Day Drifting 2 – features an epic winding road that you’ll have to master drifting around and is unlocked once you reach Platinum 1 in ranked racing.

Mclaren 765LT skin

The McLaren 765LT Bundle is now been added to the game. The vehicle skin and various cosmetics included can be used in both Rocket Racing and the main Battle Royale mode. It includes the Car Body and Wheels, which you can choose between thirteen different paint colors.

Quests and Drift Smoke Trails

Each Challenge awards a new Drift Smoke Trail color upon completion. All the Season Zero Tune-Up Quests — including the Ranked Challenges — are available until March 26, 2024, at 12 AM ET.

Major improvements and bug fixes

  • Collision impacts are far less extreme in v28.20 and will be continued to be improved on.
  • Driving into a hazard no longer turns off throttle for the duration of the hazard effect. It now applies a higher speed reduction penalty and imposes reduced acceleration so it doesn’t interfere with drifts.
  • We’ve added a setting for icon-only nameplates.
  • Fixed an issue where spectators were sometimes removed for being idle as a race was finishing.
  • Fixed an issue where going Turbo after speed boosting or drafting would cause you not to gain as much speed as intended.
  • Image quality is now improved on the post-race screen.

That’s everything Epic Games has added and changed for the Fortnite Festival and Rocket Racing patch update v28.20. As more updates are released, we will be sure to keep you updated!
