Fortnite Update & Patch Notes Today (August 8, 2023)

Ever found yourself caught amidst the whirlwind of changes in the world of Fortnite? Well, strap in, because today, August 8, 2023, there’s another wave of exciting updates and patch notes to delve into. And trust me; you’re in for quite the adventure.

To anyone familiar with the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, you’d recognize that cursed energy. It’s not just a popular manga phenomenon now; it’s crossed over into our favorite Fortnite Battle Royale universe. Picture this: the same omnipotent energy that adds layers of complexity and danger to Jujutsu Kaisen now holds sway over the Battle Royale Island.

But fear not! In the spirit of true gamers, we’ll not only face it but use it to our advantage. “Break the Curse!” is the name of the game this month, set to run until the clock strikes 2 AM ET on August 25, 2023. During this period, you’ll get a chance to harness and wield this energy, turning the tables in your favor.

Destroy Cursed Llamas to learn cursed techniques. While using these techniques and battling in other ways, complete Break the Curse! Quests for cosmetic and level up rewards in the free reward track, including the Shadow Play: Toad Emote

Want more rewards as you complete the Quests of each jujutsu sorcerer grade? Purchase the Premium Reward Track upgrade for an extra layer of rewards, including the Yuji Itadori Outfit. (Receive the Streetwear Yuji Itadori Outfit upon purchasing the Premium Reward Track upgrade.) Also, compete in the Jujutsu Kaisen Cup on August 11 for an opportunity to earn a special Spray and Emoticons based on Jujutsu Kaisen.

Yuji isn’t the only Jujutsu High sorcerer debuting in Fortnite — the Outfits for Yuji’s classmates Megumi Fushiguro and Nobara Kugisaki, and teacher Satoru Gojo, are available in the Item Shop starting now! Get more info on Break the Curse! below.

Learn from Llamas: Cursed Techniques

Cursed Llamas are roaming on the Island — break one and it’ll drop two cursed techniques: Straw Doll Technique and Hollow Technique: Purple.

Straw Doll Technique

The Straw Doll Technique is a swift hammer combo that launches nails filled with cursed energy. Use this technique to help nail in your win!

Hollow Technique: Purple

Often referred to as just “Purple,” this cursed technique is a secret combination of cursed techniques that erases buildings in its path and deals damage over time to enemies.

Break the Curse! Quests

Completing Break the Curse! Quests will earn you Cursed Energy. There are Break the Curse! Quests for battling on the Battle Royale Island and earning XP in creator-made islands. The more Cursed Energy you earn, the more in-game rewards you’ll unlock! Navigate to the Break the Curse! tab in the Lobby to keep track of your Cursed Energy and remaining rewards. 

The cosmetic and level up rewards of Break the Curse!

On this screen, you’ll notice the free reward track and the Premium Reward Track upgrade which is unlockable for a fee. The free reward track contains 11 unlockable rewards, including the Shadow Play: Toad Emote as the final reward.

If you purchase the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll unlock extra rewards as you unlock rewards in the free reward track (without having to complete additional Quests). The Premium Reward Track upgrade is purchasable for 1,000 V-Bucks and contains 11 unlockable rewards. Upon purchasing the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll automatically receive the Streetwear Yuji Itadori Outfit:

  • The Grade 4 Quests are live starting now.

  • The Grade 2 Quests go live August 15 at 9 AM ET.

Please note that the Break the Curse! free reward track items, Premium Reward Track upgrade items, and Nue Glider are not exclusive to Break the Curse!, and they may become purchasable in the Item Shop at a later date.

Jujutsu Kaisen Cup

Don’t just go up in the grades, go up in the competition too. Taking place on August 11, the Jujutsu Kaisen Cup is a Duos Zero Build tournament where you can compete to be among the top point-earning players in your region, unlocking the Good Boy Kon Emoticon.

If your duo gets three eliminations in the tournament, your jujutsu sorcery skills will be rewarded with the Gojo’s Eye Emoticon. Also, all players who earn at least eight points will earn the Yuji’s Training Spray!

Competitors can play up to ten matches within their region’s three-hour time window, and the specific event timing for each region can be found in the “Compete” tab in-game. (Remember: Once a player participates in a region in any competitive event during Chapter 4 Season 3, they will be locked to that region for any subsequent session for that event, and all sessions for future events in the Season.)
