It is a big day for Fortnite: Battle Royale




  • It is a big day for Fortnite: Battle Royale. Season 5 started this afternoon, bringing with fortnite items a new battle pass plus a package of changes both little and large. Developer Epic Games just announced that it would be taking servers down to investigate matchmaking and login problems that was cropping up within the duration of the day. As usual, there is no word on uptime, but you can keep tabs on the status .

    It is a big setback for a day which was going pretty well for Epic Games, even though a few server problems over at PlayStation Network have been giving PS4 users some issues. It does not seem to be a terrific day on the technical side of things overall.

    Fortnite has had some intermittent technical problems lately, most especially some matchmaking problems that resulted in the developer to postpone the much-anticipated Playground style for weekly.
