After about one and a half days, Fortnites Black Hole is over. Despite the anticipation of a big event, the server just went offline. There it is.
About 4 o'clock in the morning, with thousands of people around the world stared at Fortnite 's swirling black hole, the game suddenly blinked on a loading screen and the message " Fortnite servers are currently under maintenance. Please try again later. "The servers are currently being viewed as" offline "and are expected to be serviced for next season] Season, that's quite a standard: Developer Epic takes the game offline between 4 and 6 in the morning to update things. I am not surprised that this is downtime and I am glad that we are getting the new season so soon. But after all that waiting and the social media blackout around the black hole, it feels a little anti-climactic to me. Was there a big event of "death through a black hole" in us all the time? I'm awake at four in the morning so I'll say yes because I need it.
Some people on Twitter say the new movie trailer was played in the lobby for them, but I could not access it because pressing Relaunch has just taken me out of the game, which is currently being updated. People Watch:
After the big end of the season, Fortnite turned from a game of strange characters and 10-year-old teammates into a swirling black hole. It then stayed the same for the collective shock of the Internet. Confused players have teamed up to decode mysterious numbers, play a hidden mini-game, engage in speculation, and watch a screen saver for over 35 hours.
Finally we are free from the hole and get a new season from Fortnite . There was evidence of a new map, and a supposedly leaked Battle Pass trailer shows possible new weapons, a new way to level up, and new things to do. We'll see what the new world of Fortnite looks like when the game comes back online, which equates to 60% for me.
Update 04:43 – My update is finished, but I only see "Server Offline". I cook a second pot of coffee.
