Epic Games store users are also experiencing problems with the launcher, coinciding with Fortnite’s end of season live event.
“We are aware that some folks are unable to login to the Epic Games launcher and are working on getting the service back to normal,” the company tweeted. “As a work around, you can elect to skip login to access games that don’t require you to be online.”
Update, October 15: The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 Battle Pass trailer has an aquatic theme, suggesting water will play a significant role in the updated battle royale game when it finally returns.
Update 2, October 15: A Fortnite Chapter 2 update and a story trailer have also been released. The launch trailer shows off the new island map in further detail, as well as four new characters.
Original story continues:
It’s unclear what the end of season X and the start of season 11 will bring, but it’s heavily rumoured that Sunday’s live event will trigger Fortnite ‘Chapter 2’ and transport players to a new map or an overhauled version of the existing one.
It also introduced a skill-based matchmaking system for Fortnite battle royale’s core modes in a bid to create a more even playing field and said it plans to add bots to Fortnite’s non-competitive playlists starting in season 11.
