Fortnite Rocket Racing 29.20 Update: Full Patch Notes and More

Players are going to want to venture into the game and check out all the content, and we’ve got all the patch notes posted below thanks to Epic.

THE CITY STREETS AWAIT

Neon Rush presents five new tracks from Epic — four that turn a different city into a street race. Make bright lights bygone blurs in these neon-packed tracks.

Rocket Racing Jackrabbit

Here are all five Epic tracks available at Neon Rush’s launch:

  • Jackrabbit: Drift and take shortcuts for a slick city finish. (Difficulty: Novice. Track unlocked in ranked racing at Bronze I.)
  • Tri-City: Air dodge between different roads for a true freeway experience. (Difficulty: Novice. Unlocked in ranked racing at Silver I.)
  • Conduit: This rainforest city features waterfalls… and a giant free fall. (Difficulty: Expert. Unlocked in ranked racing at Platinum I.)
  • Delirium: How well can you handle driving upside down downtown? (Difficulty: Expert. Unlocked in ranked racing at Diamond I.)
  • Slap Happy: Take a break from the neon nightlife by drifting ‘round a humble town. (Difficulty: Advanced. Unlocked in ranked racing at Gold I.)

COMPETE ON CREATOR-MADE TRACKS

Rocket Racing Creator-Made Track

With Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN), creators are able to make their own Rocket Racing tracks! You can access a specific creator-made track with a Fortnite island code, or find them naturally in five new rows in the track selection:

  • What’s Possible in UEFN: A temporary row highlighting the possibilities of creating tracks with UEFN!
  • Community Speed Run: Top Tracks: The most popular creator-made Speed Run tracks in the community.
  • Community Speed Run: New Tracks: Creator-made Speed Run tracks quickly rising in popularity.
  • Community Racing: Top Tracks: The most popular creator-made Racing tracks in the community.
  • Community Racing: New Tracks: Creator-made Racing tracks quickly rising in popularity.

Creator-made Racing tracks are ineligible for ranked play currently, but it’s something we’re considering for the future.

Rocket Racing UEFN

The tracks in the “What’s Possible in UEFN” row are creator-made tracks to help showcase what’s possible with the newly released Rocket Racing templates in UEFN. Try out these tracks and see what the community is capable of! Are you a creator and want to make your own tracks? Check out the Build Your Own Rocket Racing Islands with UEFN! post.

RANK RESET

Neon Rush brings a new Ranked period! With this new beginning, everyone’s rank has been reset. Your rank is based on your finishing rank in the last Ranked period, meaning you may start at Gold, Silver, etc. instead of Bronze if you finished at a high rank in the last Ranked period.

Rocket Racing Conduit

This Ranked period will run until Neon Rush ends. Zoom back to the rank you were and then some!

SPEED RUN EXPANSION

Rocket Racing Speed Run

Wished your favorite Racing tracks had leaderboards? Get your engines ready because all Epic-made Racing tracks can be played as Speed Run tracks too ⏱

FEEL THE RUSH OF QUEST REWARDS

The kickoff of Neon Rush brings Neon Rush Kickoff Quests! Complete Neon Rush Kickoff Quests to unlock the Aetherius Wheels and 13 different paint colors for them. These Quests are available until the end of Neon Rush.

Fortnite Aetherius Wheels

The Aetherius Wheels.

Neon Rush’s Ranked Quests, available until the end of Neon Rush, offer in-game rewards like the Psypher Trail and different paint colors for it!

WHAT ABOUT SEASON 1?

Good question! Just like how Rocket Racing is all about racing without limits, we wanted to treat Rocket Racing development the same way. So with that in mind, we decided not to approach major updates as typical “Seasons.” Instead, we want to introduce themed content while leaving room for features that go beyond the overall theme.

For example, Neon Rush has neon-themed courses, but also celebrates creator-made tracks and brings the small-town “Slap Happy” track.

There’s something for everyone in Neon Rush, and we want future major updates to take their own exciting roads!

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS, ADJUSTMENTS, AND BUG FIXES

Rocket Racing Delirium

RANKED RACING, MATCHMAKING, AND LEADERBOARDS

  • Ranked Progression Balancing: Alongside the rank reset, we are making adjustments to progress gains in ranked play. Our intention is to reduce some of the grind players felt climbing the ranks in the last Ranked period. Good luck to everyone playing ranked races, and let us know what you think about the progression changes!
  • Ranked Racing Matchmaking: With the start of Neon Rush, we’ve made some adjustments to how matchmaking works in ranked play, with the goal of improving queue times for players at all ranks.
  • Speed Run Leaderboards: With Neon Rush, the Speed Run leaderboards have been reset. Good luck keeping your name at the top, everyone!
