‘Fortnite’ Down: Here’s When It Comes Back Online, And What Happened In The ‘Fractured’ Live-Event

Fortnite has gone offline following an epic—if barely too-long—live-event that noticed the destruction of the Chapter 3 map and the piecing collectively of the brand new Chapter 4 map, courtesy of the Paradigm.

The occasion itself was fairly cool. You’re in area, principally, with a number of small floating islands hovering across the Zero Level—that enormous glowing orb within the image above.

Your aim right here was to assemble power orbs to funnel energy into the Zero Level in order that Paradigm might use it to energy her Map development. To do that you needed to discover orbs across the map and full mini-games and challenges reminiscent of:

  • Matching props across the floating islands, like flamingos.
  • Watching flashbacks of earlier live-events just like the rocket and the Mech vs Monster battle.
  • Operating NPC quests like constructing a snowman, throwing a hen into the Zero Level and so forth.

Because the Paradigm roped in an increasing number of islands, new areas to discover turned out there, together with extra locations to search out orbs.

I feel I bought to 44 factors by the tip of the occasion. I recorded the entire thing however the video footage is corrupted or I’d share it with you right here. I’m really fairly annoyed about this!

As the ultimate cinematic performed out we glimpsed just a few acquainted faces—the identical skins I wrote about leaking forward of the occasion: Geralt Of Rivia, Mr. Beast, The Hulk, DOOM Man and what appears to be like to be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and characters from Toy Story.

The brand new map appears to be like fairly candy! I’m excited to dive again in as I actually haven’t performed a lot of recently and didn’t play very a lot of Chapter 3 this previous yr. Perhaps this could breathe some new life into the sport.

Whereas the prop-hunting and whatnot was enjoyable, it may need been extra enjoyable if we’d additionally gotten a large co-op battle in opposition to The Herald first as an alternative of only a cinematic. Oh effectively! I nonetheless had enjoyable.

The occasion ended with the under cinematic:

When Does Fortnite Come Again On-line?

We don’t have a precise time proper now, however based on the Xbox in-game message Chapter 4 begins on December 4th. Meaning the earliest servers might come again on-line could be midnight ET / 9pm PT. I feel it’s extra doubtless that servers will go stay in the midst of the night time, round 3am ET / midnight PT. In different phrases: Servers can be stay while you get up tomorrow morning and obtain the brand new replace.

Epic Video games not often announce the precise time for servers to return again on-line, and prior to now they’ve made gamers anticipate days between seasons. That doesn’t look to be the case right here. If we get extra stable instances, I’ll replace this submit. If for some cause the sport doesn’t come again on-line tomorrow, I’ll replace this submit. For now, your greatest wager is both staying up later or—for those who’re smart—getting a very good night time’s sleep and leaping in tomorrow morning.

Proper now I can’t even login to Fortnite and I’m apparently logged out of my Epic Recreation Retailer on my PC regardless of simply taking part in the sport! I’m getting login errors which I assume are associated to the sport replace. Very bizarre. In any case, extra to return . . . .

Keep tuned!
