Fortnite DOWN? Server status latest as Epic Games reveal connection problems

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta trailer

Developer Epic Games is capitalizing on the game's skyrocketing popularity with an esports tournament in June, a major event that will feature pro Fortnite players as well as celebrities of all stripes. Furthermore, the app does require a constant internet connection.

Fortnite is now only available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac - although it launches on iPhone this week.

The battle royale format has rocketed both PUBG and Fortnite to success, with PUBG recently becoming the third highest-selling game on Steam, and Fortnite becoming the most-watched and most-streamed game on Twitch. Same gameplay, same map, same content, same weekly updates.

If you do manage to find one then there is some good rewards in store. Bluetooth controllers will not work with the game, but controller support will be coming eventually.

Alternatively, if you have a friend who has already received their Fortnite invite, you can have them invite you to the game to jump the line.

Protestors Leave Thousands of Shoes at US Capitol
The organization also said that some celebrities donated shoes as well, including Chelsea Handler , Alyssa Milano , Bette Midler , and Susan Sarandon .

As this is a preview event, expect to see bugs, wait times until Epic expands capacity, and refinements as they start to receive feedback.

Players who manage to come across a Supply Llama are likely to get some good loot.

One added: "Fortnite down again what will I do with my night".

Factors that contribute to the order in which players receive invites include sign up order, proximity to a data center, and device model, among other factors. Are you a Fortnite player?

They have arrived as part of the new update which also saw the introduction of remote explosives that let you tactically strike enemies from a distance.
