The Fortnite 2.23 update patch notes have been explained by developer Epic Games. This new Fortnite patch today implements fixes to address issues with Battle Royale Replays and Save the World localization. Fortunately, for those who want to quickly download the update and get back to playing, the 2.23 update will not require any downtime. As the new Fortnite update rolls out across PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iPhone, players will need to exit their game to download and install the patch. However, this should only take a short moment, and is only a minor inconvenience when compared to the usual 1-2 hours maintenance downtime that usually follows a new patch. For the Fortnite 2.23 update patch notes full list, see below.
Fortnite 2.23 Update Patch Notes (New update today)
Fortnite 2.23 has been deployed with the main intention of fixing two significant issues, affecting both Battle Royale and Save the World players.
As explained on Twitter by the official Fortnite account, the latest 2.23 client patch addresses issues with Battle Royale Replays and Save the World localization.
We’re releasing a client patch tomorrow, at 8am ET(1200UTC) to address issues with Battle Royale Replays and Save the World localization. There will be no downtime for this update.

While players will no doubt appreciate the fixes contained within the Fortnite 2.23 update, the previous patch was a lot more exciting, content-wise.
Save the World players received a new Fortnite x Jordan event, which includes the Downtown Drop LTM and new basketball skins based around the Michael Jordan brand.
Battle Royale players found that they had new “Hot Spots” to discover on the island map. These feature drones which can be shot down. Successfully downed drones can then be looted for more powerful equipment. (This is also what the new gold named places text is all about!)
The Fortnite 2.23 update has been rolled out on a Friday, which is unusual. It’s clear that Epic Games wanted to get the fixes implemented before the weekend, which is presumably the most popular time for players to be online.
