As most Fortnite players will know, Fornite suffered some horrendous downtime in the past 24 hours due to database issues. Epic was supposed to get the new 50v50 V2 Limited Time Mode up and running as soon as possible but it has now been delayed.
A statement from Epic released this evening reads:
You may have seen information or even a video about the 50v50 v2 Limited Time Mode going live today. Due to the account service issues we’ve been experiencing, and in order to preserve your play experience this weekend, we will be delaying it to next week.
We want you to be able to play Fortnite, and can’t wait to get this mode into your hands ASAP!
So it’s good and bad news. At least the game is back online but you’ll have to wait a week for the new updated mode.
The new 50v50 Limited Time Mode comes with a few changes when it launches including profile stats not being tracked, each team now has a bus, the final storm circle will be visible from the start, supply drops come in batches of 3-6, and a dotted line has been added to the map to indicate battle lines. There are just a few major changes but check the patch notes for more ahead of next week.
