Epic Games has released a new Fortnite update 2.81 for today, August 20! It seems this patch is only for PS4, and unfortunately, doesn’ seem to bring any new gameplay-related fixes.

New Fortnite Update 2.81 patch notes:

According to the official Fortnite Support Twitter account, this is just for stability:

Over on the official Fortnite Trello board, some of the issues the game has been experiencing has been sorted out (note that this most likely have been fixed behind the scenes). Chief among them is the Catwoman bundle cosmetic issue.

General Top Issues:

Catwoman Bundle Missing Jeweled Cat Back Bling


The Catwoman Bundle has been corrected and all missing Jeweled Cat Back Blings have been granted.


We’re aware the Catwoman Bundle is not properly granting the Jeweled Cat Back Bling and will be correcting this shortly.

Anyone who already purchased and did not get the Back Bling will be granted it in the near future.

It also mentions how one bug in Creative has been fixed in a future game update

Crash on consoles when renaming a device:


While playing on console, renaming a device will cause the game to crash.



It seems that’s it for this patch. If you spot any gameplay-related changes, let us know down in the comments and we’ll update the post to reflect it.

In other Fortnite news, don’t forget, a new DC villains bundle is coming soon! And of course, there’s the on-going lawsuit between Epic Games vs. Apple and Google.
