Epic is considering more than 100 players for Fortnite

Fortnite freebies say sorry for hit game's downtime

Fortnite freebies say sorry for hit game's downtime

As players know, completing Battle Pass Challenges allows gamers to move up the tiers and earn new gear. I mean, personally, I would love to try it. The developer claims that the problems stemmed from a critical database failure that required the team to take the game offline for a period of "emergency maintenance".

So, they will be releasing a Black Bling gift this weekend that Battle Royale players can get from the store for free and for Save the World players, they're offering a Troll Stash Llama in the loot tab for free.

We'll have a detailed postmortem of this week's issues, and more information about how we will improve services for you in the future. If we were to put those classes into Battle Royale everyone would gravitate towards the one that has the smallest "hitbox". That, as you can guess, is not good when you have a game as popular as Fortnite is. Some fans on the Fortnite forums have expressed their frustration with what seems to be the developer's lack of attention to Save the World.


Not only are Epic Games considering increasing the player count in the future, they are also trying to mesh the two modes in the game together. By the time the servers came back up, Epic had been experiencing Fortnite server issues for almost 24 hours, resulting in a lengthy maintenance period that made the game inaccessible for everyone.

"Those are really fun palate cleansers", said Williamson. "We have plenty of ways to make it our own but they may never see the light of day if they keep doing this". They give us the opportunity to break the game and tip everything on its head. One of the more interesting teased content updates, however, has got to be the increased player cap of the usual 100-man lobby.

Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
