Fortnite players have been unable to join matches again this morning after Epic Games launch maintenance repairs.

Fortnite has been unavailable for the last two mornings as Epic Games works to fix bugs and issues from the most recent v4.3 update that was launched on Wednesday. 

Epic Games has not announced when servers will be back online, but have said that all other game services remain operational. 

The server downtime comes a day after Epic Games added the new Week 5 challenges two days later than their usual launch date on Thursday. 

Epic Games are still yet to announce when Fortnite’s matchmaking services will be operational again. 

The rest of the game’s services are still fully operational so far, but gamers have remained locked out for more than three hours now. 

When will Fortnite be back online?

Fortnite servers are down again this morning, with Epic Games fixing a number of bugs and issues that have arisen from the latest update.

Update v4.3 added several new additions to the game, including shopping carts as a brand new way to travel around the map. 

Shopping carts are the first vehicles added to the battle royale game, but the update has produced several issues for Epic Games. 

The developers tweeted at 9am this morning, saying: “Matchmaking is currently disabled as we undergo service maintenance. Stay updated here –“

They also included a link to the Reddit site to explain how their maintenance process works. 

Players have been left frustrated this week as Epic Games switched the servers off to perform maintenance for the last two mornings. 

Yesterday’s server downtime was because Epic Games had identified a situation where Battle Royale match wins for console players were not reporting correctly.

It is still unclear whether today’s issues are related, but matchmaking remains offline for the moment.

Epic Games has announced that all other game services remain fully operational, including voice chat, leaderboards, store, and login.

The developers have not yet announced when Fortnite will be fully operational again, though players can likely expect all services to resume as normal before 12pm BST today. 

When the servers return, gamers can jump straight back into the Week 5 challenges so that they can collect their 10 Battle Stars on the Battle Pass. 

Seven new tasks have been presented to players, including dancing near disco ball and completing the Greasy Grove Treasure Map.

This weeks challenges include:

 Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (500)

• Search Chests in Dusty Divot (7)

• Use a Vending Machine (3)

• Dance with others to raise the Disco Ball near Loot Lake(1)

• Follow the treasure map found in Greasy Grove (1) (HARD)

• Minigun or Light Machine Gun Eliminations (2) (HARD)

• Eliminate opponents in Lucky Landing (3) (HARD)

Most of these challenges will be fairly simple for Fortnite players, but some of them require some strategy or teamwork. 

The ‘Dance to raise the Disco Ball’ challenge, for instance, requires players to find one of the four dance floors with a disco ball in the middle and dance with one member of your squad on each dance floor. 

You can tackle this challenge alone and hope that another random player will also be boogeying away but it is recommended to complete this challenge with a team.

In a post online on Reddit, Epic Games said: “We wanted to give you a heads up that we’re planning another maintenance window tomorrow, June 1, at 4 AM ET (8 AM UTC).

“During this time, matchmaking will be unavailable for Fortnite Battle Royale. This will be the third day in a row that we’ve had a scheduled maintenance window. I can explain.

“We mentioned back in February scaling the backend MongoDB database that we use for much of our account and matchmaking system has been a challenge.

“We’ve made a ton of progress and our database has never been in a better place than it is right now, but we knew that it wasn’t the right fit to handle our continued growth and new types of LTMs.

“The Playground LTM v1, for example, has a maximum of 4 players per game which means we’ll need a lot more game instances and matchmaking sessions to support that mode than we do a mode like Battle Royale that can support up to 100 players per instance.”

Epic Games added: “Over the last couple of days we’ve been working on rolling out a brand new, horizontally scalable, session tracking service to manage sessions for matchmaking.

“Despite extensive testing over the last few weeks, we ran into some problems when we attempted to put it into production.

“First, we ran into an issue with the way the system handled the case of many thousands of empty game servers, just waiting for people to drop at Tilted, that caused a lot more data to be returned by queries to the service than we expected. 

“We solved that problem and tried to deploy again this morning, and while performance looked good we ran into a problem with the way our dedicated server auto-scaling systems interacted with the session tracker that required us to revert to the previous system again.”
