Fortnite Summer Update Patch Notes – 4th July 2023

Here are the patch notes for today’s hotfix Fortnite summer event update.

Last week, Epic Games released the v25.11 update. There wasn’t a lot of new content that was released in that patch update. We did get the pump shotgun back in the game.

However, most of the new content that was added was encrypted for the Fortnite Summer Escape 2023 event. Earlier this morning, the content was decrypted.

At 9 AM ET, the Fortnite 2023 summer event went live with some minor map changes, a couple of new items, a bunch of challenges, and some free cosmetic rewards.

Here’s a look at all the changes and new features introduced in the 4th July 2023 Fortnite Summer Update.
