June 30, 2020

we’re not sure for how long, but  Fortnite servers  at the time of publishing this are thought to still be down as Epic Games is implementing the latest patch 13.20 for the popular battle royale game.

Epic Games confirmed the downtime for Fortnite earlier today as the game was taken offline at 7am BST.

Servers could be offline anywhere between an hour to two hours, but in some cases, it could be longer.

But its all for a good cause, as we’re told this update is promising to 'add new Flare' to the game, which fans think this is hinting towards the return of the Flare Gun.

Once the update has been rolled out, players should have no problem updating their game by downloading the new patch and logging back in.
