A new Fortnite update, v25.30 (3.98) will go live today on 8th August 2023. Here are the early patch notes for the update as well as information on scheduled downtime.
It’s been a couple of weeks since Epic Games released the last new major Fortnite update. The 25.20 update introduced the Futurama x Fortnite collaboration.
The collaboration included numerous outfits and other cosmetics that are available to purchase from the Fortnite Item Shop.
Bender’s Raygun was also added as well as Bender himself as a boss that’ll drop the weapon once eliminating him.
The Mammoth pistol was also added to the game in the v25.20 update as well as a couple of Reality Augments including one for pistols.
Last week, Epic released a hotfix update that unvaulted the Grapple Glove. There were no changes to the Grapple Glove and will likely remain in the game until the new season releases in a few weeks.
The Reboot Valley event also went live along with the Galaxy Cup 3 which was available to participate in on the weekend which provided players with the chance to earn the new Fortnite Galaxy skin.
A downloadable update was also released last week that addressed stability issues as well as an issue that affected loading times on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
With Fortnite chapter 4 season 4 just a few weeks ago, Epic Games are looking to close out the season with a couple more updates.
The v25.30 (3.98) Fortnite update is the new update that’ll go live today. Here are the early patch notes for the update including information on server downtime.
Fortnite Scheduled Server Downtime & When the Servers Will Be Back Online – August 8th, 2023
As with any major release, the 3.98 Fortnite update will require the servers to go offline. Epic Games announced when the servers will go down.
At 4 AM ET / 8 AM UTC / 9 AM BST / 10 AM CEST, the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance for the v25.30 Fortnite update.
Matchmaking will be disabled thirty minutes prior to the servers going offline. Here’s the official tweet announcing the update time:
As expected, there’s no information regarding how long the servers will be down. However, we’d expect the servers to remain down for a couple of hours.
That means we expect the servers to come back online on August 8th, 2023, at roughly 6 AM ET / 11 AM BST / 12 PM CEST.
Be sure to check back to this part of the article as we’ll update this section when the servers are back online.
v25.30 (3.98) Fortnite Update Patch Notes
Thanks to data miners, we usually know what to expect before a major Fortnite update drops, and the 3.98 v25.30 Fortnite update is no different.
Over a week ago, data miners leaked the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen skins that would be coming to the game. Not long later, Epic Games confirmed the collaboration with a teaser video.
As was the case for the last patch, the main focus of the v25.30 Fortnite update will be a collaboration. Apart from the skins, we don’t know if there will be a boss or NPC added to the map along with new weapons that’ll be part of the collaboration.
There’s a chance we’ll see a Fortnite Jujutsu Kaisen event pass with players able to purchase the premium tier to unlock better cosmetics.
With leaks regarding a WWE x Fortnite collaboration, the outfits for the crossover will likely be in the 3.98 files which means they’ll be leaked unless they’re encrypted.
If this is the final update of the season, expect the Fortnite chapter 4 season 4 starter pack to be leaked along with information on the new season.
