Fortnite Downtime

Even the most popular multiplayer online games need some backend and server maintenance from time to time, and it seems Fortnite needs some as well. Developers Epic Games tweeted yesterday saying the servers of Fortnite will be going offline for a while due to some maintenance that needs to be done. During this time, you obviously won’t be able to play the online elements of the game. Also Read - PUBG Mobile ban in India unlikely to be reversed, suggests Ministry

The servers will be offline from 4am ET (0800 GMT) April 5 which in Indian Standard Time translates to 1.30 PM on April 5. The tweet does not mention any end time and if we were to take a guess, it should not take more than a couple of hours. This assumption is based on the fact that the previous updates have not taken longer than that. And though Epic Games has not mentioned the end time of the server down time, they didn t mention if it would take longer than usual as well.

This downtime may be because Epic Games needed to address a number of issues that cropped up last week that included extended matchmaking queue time and login issues experienced by some players. Besides this, the company has even launched its mobile version on iOS that has cross-play features. This has essentially created a larger player base with systems that are essentially different from consoles and PCs.

Fortnite s last update consisted of Vending Machines that would provide weapons and equipment in exchange of materials like wood, stone and metal. It introduced a bunch of gameplay mechanics changes as well. The game goes head-to-head with PUBG Mobile, which is another popular battle royale-style game for smartphones. While PUBG is available on both iOS and Android, Fortnite is currently only available on iOS, with an Android version in the works.
