Fortnite Suffers Major Server Issues As New Content Is Released

13 April 2018, 12:58 | Brandon Parsons



It looks like that comet was headed for Epic's servers and not Tilted Towers after all. After all, there have been many different limited-time game modes, and a lot of them have received a great feedback from the community.

In following updates though, it appears that Epic Games have gotten to the root of the issue. Hopefully, we won't have to worry about it again now that those databases have been upgraded. "We will provide updates as necessary", the developer wrote on its status page. The developer has not given gamers a timeframe on how long the fix will take, but they will be keeping players informed as they work out the issues here. If you are placed into a queue, be aware that you may not have to sit through the entire wait time, so you can always suspend the application and do something else without being kicked from the queue.

This is due to a database failure which we are working to resolve as quickly as possible. "In a measure towards resolution, matchmaking will be blocked for a short period", it wrote around 9pm Wednesday.

Thank you for your patience! The Fortnite community forum is filled with reports from players who are complaining about the fact that they can't login into their accounts. After being down for an hour yesterday to apply the update, the bugs and glitches fixed by the patch were then replaced by new bugs and glitches. Epic is describing the issue as "ongoing extended instability", which seems to imply that the server might not be down completely, but many or possibly even most players are affected.

WNBA Draft: Rutgers' Tyler Scaife drafted No. 20 overall by Phoenix Mercury
She was named the Big Ten's Player of the Year for third time and became Ohio State's first four-time All-American. The franchise, a year removed from its Tulsa relocation, needed to hit on its picks to build up a playoff roster.

Apparently, this massive spike happened in direct correlation with the live stream in which hip-hop star Drake played the game on Twitch with popular gaming streamer Ninja.

With PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Epic Games' Fortnite duking it out on all fronts, we've made a decision to take a closer look at these battle royale shooters to see which one might best suit you.

In a post on their official site, Epic wrote: "Join us this E3 for the ultimate Fortnite Party Royale, pairing some of the world's greatest athletes and entertainers with top Fortnite Battle Royale players from across the globe".
