Epic Games/Toei Animation

Fortnite update 23.30 has arrived, bringing another Dragon Ball crossover, new Augments, and the much-desired Geralt of Rivia skin. Here are the patch notes for Fortnite v23.30.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is set to end on March 10, leaving plenty of time for a handful of updates to still release ahead of Season 2. 

Season 1 has brought many crossovers into the game with ones such as My Hero Academia, Doomslayer, and the most recent Kid LAROI event.

Yet, there is still room for some more as the 23.30 update will bring in another crossover event and a long-awaited skin for players to enjoy.

Another Dragon Ball crossover arrives!

Following the success of the first Dragon Ball x Fortnite collaboration last year, another crossover is taking place with fan-favorite characters Son Gohan and Piccolo getting skins in the game.

Previous Dragon Ball skins – Goku, Bulma, Vegeta, and Beerus – are also expected to make a return to the Item Shop at a later date.
