Fortnite update v28.20 has arrived, and this latest patch brings plenty of content to the battle royale including new quests to complete and a TMNT crossover event to enjoy.

There's not long until Chapter 5: Season 1 comes to a close, but Epic Games is making sure this season's final month is one to remember with the v28.20 update. Check out the patch notes and all the new features below.

Fortnite update 28.20 patch notes

McLaren 765LT supercar swerves into action

Speedsters rejoice, you can now purchase the McLaren 765LT supercar in Fortnite! You can use this car in Rocket Racing or Battle Royale mode, and there are 13 different paint colours to show off your style.

TMNT event is about to begin

We've already seen the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles appear as skins in Fortnite, but we're about to get a huge crossover with the iconic characters as the upcoming TMNT event is set to begin on Friday, February 9.

The 28.20 update has added the files needed for this event, which is expected to include a paid-for mini battle pass to work through with rewards including TMNT-themed skins and cosmetics. Cowabunga indeed.

New Mythic weapons are on the way

It's been reported that four ninja-themed Mythic weapons are being added to the loot pool as part of the TMNT crossover: Donatello's Bo, Leonardo's Katanas, Michaelangelo's Nunchucks, and Rafael's Sais.

You'll also be able to surf around the Island on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed Hoverboard, and Supply Drops are getting a turtle-y awesome makeover (sorry, couldn't resist).

Shredder and Splinter skins join the battle

As part of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles event, mutant rat Splinter and iconic villain Shredder are both getting skins in Fortnite - joining the previously-released ninja turtle quartet and April O'Neill.

You'll be able to purchase the Splinter skin from the Item Shop, while both variants of the Shredder skin can be unlocked by purchasing the event pass and completing challenges once it goes live.

New quests to complete

Dedicated quest-doers might have noticed the latest Weekly Quests weren't added to the game on Tuesday like usual, but the good news is they've now arrived with the v28.20 update.

This means you can get your next fix of XP and keep powering through the Battle Pass. We've got our eye on the Surfin' Bird emote right now.

Boost cosmetics added to cars

You've already been able to customise your cars in Fortnite with Bodies, Decals, and Wheels, but now you can add Boosts to that list! Even better, these can be used in Rocket Racing mode and Battle Royale mode.

There are currently two Boosts available in the Item Shop: Startrack Boost and Ethereal Boost.
