Epic Games has just announced the next new Fortnite update releasing later today, 23.20 (3.77). Here are the early patch notes for the 18th January 2023 update.
It’s been a while since we had our last major Fortnite update. The last patch release, v23.10, was released more than a month ago.
The update introduced the 2022 Christmas Winterfest event which included the unvaulting of several winter-themed items.
Although we haven’t had a major release in some time, there has been plenty of content over the past month including the Mr. Beast challenge tournament, the release of the My Hero Academia and Giannis AAntetokounmpo collaborations, and more.
We’ve also seen the Heavy Shotgun being unvaulted in a small content update for some reason along with the release of the Guardian Shield and the first midseason drop being released.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait long until the next major Fortnite update with Epic Games announcing that the v23.20 (3.77) patch update will be released today.
Here’s everything you need to know including what content to expect, when the servers will go down for scheduled maintenance, and more.
Fortnite Servers Downtime – Are the Servers Down on January 18, 2023?
Every major Fortnite update that’s released includes server downtime and the 23.20 (3.77) patch release is no different.
Epic Games have stated that the servers will go down for scheduled maintenance at 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.
Epic never releases any information in regard to how long the servers will be down. However, we’d expect them to be down for 2 hours meaning the Fortnite servers should be back online at roughly 6 AM ET / 11 AM GMT on January 17th, 2023.
We’ll update this when they’re officially back up.

Thanks to ShiinaBR, we know some of the content to expect in the 3.77 update. A previous leak suggested a Dead Space x Fortnite collaboration would be coming soon. If correct, we should see the latest crossover in the 23.30 files.
A Rift Warden Stellan skin should be added to the files along with the Crew skin for February 2023. As usual, we’ll see the next two weeks of quests being leaked along with the Doom Slayer Midseason Drop.
We should see content being leaked for next week’s hotfix update along with some concert items and the possibility of more information on the Kid Laroi concert.
The Falcon Scout item will be added to the game I’m the 23.20 (3.77) Fortnite update.
In the tweet announcing the patch, Epic tweeted adding the following text:
“Did you know? Hawks aren’t real and are actually secret surveillance drones.”. The Falcon Scout item was teased in the chapter 4 season 1 launch trailer and will finally be available to use.
