If you were looking to play a game, or ninety, of Fortnite today, you will likely have to hold fire as we are currently in the middle of server downtime.
While that may be frustrating for those of you who were looking to pass some time on the game that has become a cultural phenomenon, it is good news as the downtime is used to implement some changes and new additions to the game- something it does regularly to keep things fresh.
As per the official Fortnite Twitter account: âWeâre beginning to disable services in preparation for v14.20. If youâre currently in a session, you can continue to play until downtime starts at approx. 4 AM ET (08:00 UTC).â So thatâs 9 am today for us here in the UK.
