It is a significant setback for a day that was going fairly well for Epic Games, even if some server problems over at PlayStation Network have been giving PS4 users some difficulties. It does not seem to buy fortnite items a great day on the technical aspect of things overall.
Fortnite has had some intermittent technical problems lately, most especially some matchmaking issues that resulted in the developer to postpone the much-anticipated Playground style for weekly. But it's been some time since it saw extended unplanned downtime, so we hope that that isn't what we're looking at here.
Fortnite has among the most competitive upgrade programs in the company, and fortnite items market is clear that upgrading a match so frequently can cause all kinds of unexpected problems to come up.
Last extended downtime was caused by errors that caused a disproportionate quantity of database questions, and Epic went to some fairly intense detail describing exactly what was happening. The company has a custom of a certain degree of transparency, so expect lots of upgrades if this goes on much longer.
A little good news for Fortnite gamers on Nintendo Switch: Epic has added gyro controls into the game, so if you prefer aiming with a bit of assistance in the movement controllers rather than rely solely upon the thumbsticks, you are in luck.I'm still somewhat conflicted over movement controls myself, but I do not think it hurts to have the option. I will take the Change version for a spin and see how gyro controls help or hinder the experience.
