Epic apologises for Fortnite downtime

Epic apologises for Fortnite downtime

You may have to mess with the task manager and kill the Fortnite process - or the Epic Game Launcher - a time or two to get it up and running, but it will eventually work.

The game is now back online, although some players are still experiencing trouble connecting to the game's servers.

Epic Games is saying that the reason it chose to shutdown the servers is because it needed to perform "emergency maintenance".

The company said it experienced a "critical failure with one of our account service databases", which has destabilized the login and matchmaking systems for Fortnite. Know more about this update! "We're sorry. We know how frustrating this has been", it wrote in a Thursday blog update. "We apologize for these delays and are actively working to resolve this".

Additionally, the new patch also brings back the 50 v 50 game mode, which has now been changed to 50 v 50 v2.

If you've somehow managed to miss the "Fortnite" phenomenon thus far, you may be wondering what this is all about. Following yesterday's lengthy downtime period, during which Epic Games carried out some "emergency maintenance", I imagine many players are anxious that it will go down again.

Now, it's back, and everyone should be able to battle freely. While it may look easy to use, it may also count as your enemy, for which a late use may put you in a tight position.

"Fortnite" has become such a phenomenon that celebrities like Drake have taken to playing it with major video game streamers.

The item will be automatically added to your character for free but make sure to claim it soon as it will only be available until the end of Sunday, April 14th.

Since the game went offline it appears as if everyone who would otherwise be floating around in the Fortnite universe has logged online for a completely different form of "entertainment".
