Fortnite developer says sorry for downtime with free treats

April 13 23:02 2018

I’ve been able to login and get into a game of battle royale.

It’s not just you: “Fortnite” was offline for everyone for almost 24 hours. Here’s how to tackle those, as well as the remaining Week 8 challenges, for Battle Pass owners on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile.

“We’ve worked to mitigate the issue, and are starting to see recovery”, read an update to the Epic status page just before 1 a.m. UTC this morning.

Unfortunately, at the time of publishing, we still don’t know when the game will be fully online again. Several hours later, they were still down – and it has taken Epic almost a full 24 hours to fix the damage, which has been blamed on database corruption.

There’s going to be more downtime on the way for Fortnite.

As of this writing, it is unknown what caused the extended downtime, with the developer stating that “more updates” will come in due time.

During wait periods, login will now remember your place in line if you quit out of the game and return. It’s entirely possible that Epic is planning something for that space, though it’s also just as likely that what players found is actually still part of the old map. Additionally, resource farming has been increased 75 percent while ammo spawns at double and triple the normal rate.

“Next week, we will be granting a pack of Battle Stars to our Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold to the Save the World players”, the studio said. The developers first tweeted about the issues last night at 21:00 GMT, so they’ve have been ongoing for close to a full 24 hours.

Client crashes in connection with the game’s new Replay System.

Fixed an issue that broke player’s walking/sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting.

“The most common search during the same user session is Overwatch, followed by Team Fortress 2 and video game”.

Fortnite community complaints about the recent implementation of the weapon fire delay remain, however.
