Fortnite has today launched its January 20 update on select platforms (more on that later), so here’s the full list of changes and fixes with this patch. While normally I would be discussing an official list of notes revealed by Fortnite developer Epic Games, today’s update is more announced through a Twitter post. As you might be able to infer from me saying that, that means the update is quite small in nature. It’s also currently only available on Android, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms, meaning other platforms such as Nintendo Switch and PC will have to wait before getting access to the changes. I wouldn’t get super excited for it though. Without further adieu, here’s everything new with Fortnite in its January 20 update!
Fortnite January 20 Update Patch Notes
We have deployed a maintenance patch on Android and Xbox & PlayStation consoles to address stability issues and the color blind settings not saving.

As you can tell from the tweet, there isn’t much to talk about here. In case you can’t see it though, today focuses on fixing two areas. The first is stability issues, which given the wording could mean a number of different things. We could be talking server stability improvements, meaning servers shouldn’t cause ping issues quite as frequently. We could also be talking about general game stability improvements, meaning less framerate dips and things of that nature. Regardless, seeing as the entire note for this is through a Twitter post, I wouldn’t expect anything spectacular. The other change is a fix for colorblind settings not saving. This seems to be a running theme with game patches today, as a patch for Destiny 2 earlier reverted some changes that caused issues for colorblind users. Needless to say, those users are having a good day in games.
While this isn’t anything insane, with the Klombos and Tilted Towers making their debut just a few days ago, there’s not much to complain about.
Fortnite is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Android, and Nintendo Switch. For more information regarding this update, check out the Twitter post also featured above.
