At 9am United Kingdom today, Fortnite was meant to go offline for maintenance to update to patch 4.2, but many gamers noticed that never happened. 50v50 was originally slated to return in April, but the team pushed the mode's release after discovering account service issues. Due to this delay some quests may not function until the build releases. For now, all we can do is wait for more information, although many players will be displeased to learn that this item could be added to the game soon. Downtime begins at 4am ET (08:00 GMT),' Epic Games said in a statement overnight.
Fortnite is getting a new Burst Assault Rifle with the upcoming patch that releases tomorrow, a weapon that comes in both Epic and Legendary rarities. But who knows what else Marvel and Fortnite will cook up in the future?
There appears to have been a game-changing glitch in the Fortnite x Avengers Limited Time Mode of the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale video game.
It was meant to last for a week but has run just a little over that.
Pundits have predicted a new Burst Assault rifle will be thrown into the mix with the update for PS4, Xbox One and mobile, after being bombarded with hints as they now played Battle Royale.
The new Fortnite weapon will come in legendary and epic variants. Infinity Gauntlet takes the basic battle royale premise and puts a wild new spin on it that sees Thanos leaping around the map and also dancing.
Epic Games has not revealed how long server downtime will last for today, but if all goes to plan it should last for around two to three hours. However, the jetpack didn't make it to "Fortnite Battle Royale" as the developers apparently found a design glitch that needed to be fixed.
According to stats from Hookit.com, that is more that sports superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Tom Brady, LeBron James and Lionel Messi.
