If I update to Windows 8.1, will I lose everything on my laptop?

Things like games, files/documents, etc.

I do have a USB drive, so I can back up some of the more important files/documents, however I would like to be sure about what would happen if I were to update to Windows 8.1

Would it basically wipe my current OS and start off with the basic necessities for 8.1?

I'm not a super knowledgeable person when it comes to these sort of things, so that's why I'm asking here.

Thanks for any help!

No, it's just a service pack with a different name.
