Fortnite v26.20 is right around the corner, and we've got some early patch notes that should give you an idea of what will be added to the game in this update.

There are lots of things to look forward to, especially if you're a big Star Wars fan, so keep reading to find out more. Additionally, we've got info about new cosmetics and events coming in the future so be sure to read to the end to learn everything about this upcoming update.

So, let's take a look at everything we expect to see in Fortnite update v26.20.

Fortnite v26.20: Ahsoka Tano

As previously revealed, Ahsoka Tano is coming to Fortnite on September 26th. This is the latest crossover between Lucasfilm Games and Fortnite, and introduces the popular character into the game.

You'll be able to unlock Ahsoka Tano with a purchase of the current season's battle pass so you can play as her whenever you like.

This ties in with the Ahsoka series, which premiered on Disney+ back in August 2023. Ahsoka is also the latest in a pretty long line of Star Wars characters to appear in the game, including Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Kylo Ren.

According to leaks for Fortnite, more Star Wars content will be added to the game with v.26.20. That means we could be getting force powers and lightsabers in the game.

This is unconfirmed, so take it with a grain of salt. However, credible leakers have suggested that players will be able to use lightsabers and force powers in v26.20. This certainly adds up as Ahsoka Tano is definitely coming in this update and these powers would be the perfect fit for her.

We also expect various other things to happen in the v26.20 update for Fortnite. For example, the October Crew Pack and Level-Up Quest Pack will be added to the game alongside new Augments.

Fortnite's sixth birthday celebrations will be coming to a close, so limited-time quests will be removed from the game and special birthday items will be vaulted.

We're also expecting the My Hero Academia content to be vaulted, including Deku Smash and Todoroki Ice Wall. If you want these items you'd best be quick!

Finally, we might be finding out more info about Fortnitemares 2023 soon. This update is being introduced to the game slightly ahead of October 2023, so it's very likely we'll find out more info about this soon as it'll be happening around Halloween. It's almost spooky season, so players can start to get excited about this Halloween event soon!
