Fortnite taken offline after Season 3 update problem

Fortnite is going to be offline for at least another two hours.

Update: Servers are back up. Season 3 of Fortnite is green for go!

Season 3 of Fortnite Battle Royale began today, although after only 15 minutes of live time it was taken offline by Epic Games.

It's not clear what the problem is, but at the time of the last update Epic said it expects the game to be offline for at least two more hours.

The problem echoes the update for the new map additions, which caused multiple problems for the game when it came back online, and even resulted in Epic offering compensation to players for downtime.

While you're waiting, you may as well read about all the stuff you can unlock in Season 3, including the bad-ass John Wick outfit.

Season 3 also brings with it a new Hand Cannon for Battle Royale mode.

We'll update as soon as we hear more from Epic.
