Epic Games have officially released the v8.20 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale, and data miners are already searching through the games files for new items, including brand new skins, gliders, pickaxes and more that have yet to be released in the game.
The v8.20 Fortnite patch officially went live on Wednesday, March 27, and brought with it a host of changes and new items, such as the Poison Dart Trap, Foraged Items and an unpopular change to the rewards players received following an elimination.
While Fortnite fans have plenty of new content to sink their teeth into, they’ll also have plenty of new cosmetic items to spend their V-Bucks on in the near future.
As is customary following a Fortnite update, data miners have been digging through the files that were added to the game during downtime, and have come across a number of new cosmetic items that will likely be added to the Item Shop.
The leaked skins continue two of the major themes for Fortnite Season 8, based around pirates and the massive volcano.
As usual, there is no word on when these items will be added to the Item Shop, or how much they will cost when they finally make it there. Throughout Season 8, Epic Games have added two weeks worth of consumables in each major update, so expect to see them all make an appearance over the course of the next 14 days.
Of course, just because they have been added to the game’s files doesn’t mean they will ever appear in the game, as Epic have previously included new files in a patch, just to never use them.
