Fortnite is down and unplayable as players wait for Chapter 3

Fortnite is down and not available to play as Impressive Games’ smash hit fight royale shifts from Chapter 2 Season 8 — which formally ended Saturday, Dec. 4 — to Chapter 3 of the forever-updated video game.

It’s unclear when Fortnite will return online from its post-season upkeep mode, however if completion of “Chapter 1” of the video game (when the map got drawn into a great void) is any sign, it might be hours prior to gamers return onto Impressive’s murder island.

Chapter 2 covered Saturday when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — who was exposed to play The Structure in the video game — conserved Jonesy and the Fortnite island turned over, letting loose an enormous tidal bore and introducing a totally brand-new landscape on which to drop, develop, shoot, and endure.

In the meantime however, gamers who are fortunate adequate to in fact log into Fortnite (which isn’t lots of), will just have the ability to see their character drifting in the middle of the ocean as the servers stay not available for the foreseeable future.

What Fortnite Chapter 3 will give the battle-royale phenomenon — which will commemorate its 5th anniversary next year — stays to be seen. We’ll upgrade this page with brand-new information when we understand more.
