Fortnite users are currently reporting that the game's servers appear to be down. At this time, Epic Games has not made any sort of announcement about how long the game might be down for, but these types of problems tend to be resolved by the publisher fairly quickly. The problem does not seem to be localized to one platform, as several players are reporting issues on both Xbox and PlayStation consoles. For now, players will just have to sit back and wait, or perhaps pivot to a different game, for the time being! Fortunately, there are plenty of great options on all of the various gaming platforms, at the moment!
Fortnite is currently in the middle of Chapter 2 Season 4, which has been centered on the heroes and villains of the Marvel universe. As a result, some of the company's biggest stars have been added to the game, including Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Groot, and more. Venom will also be added in the near future, and a recent leak gave fans a look at the latest addition to the game.
At the moment, it's unclear how long the current season of Fortnite will last, but things seem to be building towards the kind of epic conclusion that fans are used to seeing in each season of the game. Matching the Marvel theme, this season's event seems to be related to the world-devourer Galactus. It remains to be seen how the end of the season will play out, but fans can probably expect to see things come to an end towards the end of November, or early December.
The end of a Fortnite season often leads to major changes for the game's map, and it seems likely that will be the case this time around, as well. With a threat like Galactus, it's not difficult to imagine how that might play out. Hopefully, the Fortnite servers will be back online soon so fans can go back to enjoying the rest of the current season before things come to an end!
