servers offline for update 18.30

As already anticipated by the Epic Games team, the deactivation operations of the battle royale servers are starting right now, in view of the publication of the Fortnite 18.30 update.

Through the game’s official social channels, the development team informs the community that the usual downtime period that precedes each new update is progressively beginning. From this moment, therefore, players will not be able to access the Fortnite game island: Royal Battle for a few hours. Epic Games has not communicated the exact time of the restoration of online services, but usually the update procedures do not last beyond about two or three hours.

The maintenance implemented by Epic Games precedes the introduction on the game island of the news scheduled with the Fortnite update 18.30: Royal Battle. On the content front, it is likely that the update may introduce several additions to the Halloween celebrations, now nearing the start, with Sunday 31 October that will welcome the scariest night of the year. In this regard, we remind you that to put players in the right mood, Epic Games has recently proposed a collaboration between Fortnite and Resident Evil, with Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield who have made their debut in the battle royale.
