This is quite easily one of the major updates the community has seen so far in Fortnite Season 4. Epic Games has decided to add a new and unique way of playing with friends by activating the video chat feature. 

The other significant feature added in the update includes the upcoming Venom cup in the Marvel Knockout Super Series. 

At the same time, patch v14.60 will also have an extension to the previous XP Xtravaganza. This means that players will now have an opportunity to rank up faster in Fortnite.

Fortnite patch v14.60 update

Without further delay, let's have a look at the Fortnite v14.60 update.


Venom Cup: November 18th

"We saved the most menacing one for last... Venom! Bond with your Duo partner and take on a ladder of opponents in the fourth tournament of the Marvel Knockout Super Series. Place high enough and earn the terrifying Venom Outfit. We are Venom Emote, Symbiote Slasher Pickaxe, and Tendril Tote Back Bling ahead of release."

The Venom Cup marks the end of the Marvel Knockout Super Series in Fortnite. Simultaneously, it also comes as an opportunity for players to win new cosmetics before they come out in the game. 

The Creative Hub Expands: 

"We've added new matchmaking portals to the Creative Hub powered by you - the community! Ranked according to the most popular and fastest-growing creator-made islands, these portals showcase genres like Combat, Variety Games, and Practice Matches. Jump in and discover the best of Creative."
"We're also adding a new creative LTM which cycles through a playlist of popular community-made games. Content will be rotated in regularly, so check back every few days for new experiences!"

Let's Get Social:

"In this week's update, you'll be able to SEE your friends' faces while you play together. We're introducing a whole new way to play using video chat powered by Houseparty."

This new revolutionary change in the game is going to be massive for the Fortnite community. It is not the first time that Epic Games is teaming up with Houseparty in Fortnite. Hopefully, adding video chat in the game will make matches much more interesting for players. 

XP Xtravaganza Part Two:

"The second batch of XP Xtravaganza challenges arrives this week! Get the squad together and take on these party-wide challenges to finish out the Battle Paas in style."

The opportunity for players to collect more XP is always welcomed by the community. As the season is drawing to a close, this second part of XP Xtravaganza will help several players to complete their Battle Pass.

The patch notes v14.60 came with another bit of insight. Epic Games added, "The fight for all reality is closing in!" right at the end. This means that perhaps there will be no more Marvel Superheroes included in the game. 

It also points to the imminent arrival of Galactus on Fortnite Island. The Nexus War is upon us, and recent leaks suggest that Galactus is bringing 'Winter' with him. 

The long-anticipated season-finale will perhaps end in a victory for the Avengers, but it will be at the cost of significant changes to the map. As always, Epic Games will save the best for the last, and perhaps Fortnite will usher in Winterfest 2020 after the Avengers defeat Galactus.
