Though for the most part Fortnite Season 5 has bee wildly successful even with the huge changes to the map, some PlayStation 4 players are reporting issues getting into the game.
With the new Karts, new desert biome, and tons of new reasons to play, it's understandable that the Epic Games servers are under some heavy stress right now. "We are investigating reports that some Playstation players are having trouble partying up," read their most recent Tweet.
