Fortnite Season 4 announced, possible superhero theme inbound

Fortnite Server Down: Login and matchmaking issues hit hundreds

You can hear these sound files over at Fortnite Intel. Despite having been around as a battle royale title for far less time than PUBG, it has managed to capture a comparable player base and boasts millions of gamers that are battling out for the top spot each and every day. Matches start out with players parachuting down onto a massive map and having to scavenge for weapons and armor.

Epic Games announced the downtime at 5pm BST today and it has meant that all players are now unable to play Fortnite while the team works to fix the issue. Fortnite is also multi-platform, allowing users to play the game on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS. While PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds also makes a large amount of money, the game is not free to play but also has microtransactions, something that was rather unpopular before the game made a full release. The game is completely free to download and play, but has optional purchases for things like character skins, emotes, and other cosmetic items. At the time, it set a record for most concurrents for a single channel, though Blevins has since broke that record, streaming the game from an event last week to 667,000 people.

Fortnite servers are down while it addresses a problem that prevented some players from being able to access the game. If the rumblings are to be believed, we could soon see the hugely popular Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, with a reveal expected to be shown at the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2018 presentation in June.

According to PCGamesN, the timing of the superhero image is flawless for the game since the new Avengers movie has been released.

Epic Games has been adding content, improving performance, and fixing Fortnite: Battle Royale on a regular schedule with the occasional hiccup thrown in due to the game's stupendous growth.
