Fortnite Players To Receive Compensation Following Extended Server Downtime
Fortnite players have been put through the wringer lately between login issues and server outages. The latest spat of issues appeared as a result of the game’s Update V.2.3.0, which caused numerous issues that affected party features and the servers as a whole. During a period of time things got so bad that the entire party system went down, with many players unable to even log in while Epic Games worked on fixing the issue.
As an apology for the latest batch of issues Epic Games released a statement on Twitter announcing that Fortnite players with receive due compensation, with different goodies being handed out for both ‘Save the World’ and ‘Battle Royale’ game modes. Here’s the statement from Epic Games:
We told you we appreciate your patience with some of the issues we’ve had after releasing V.2.3.0, and we meant it. In recognition of that patience, we are going to be providing some goodies to both StW and BR players.”
Thankfully, Fortnite players didn’t have to wait long to find out just what Epic Games meant by “goodies”. The developer revealed the details of the compensation over on its official website, with separate compensation provided for both ‘Battle Royale’ players and ‘Save the World’ players.
- 20 Battle Stars toward your Battle Pass progression
Save the World:
- 1600 Seasonal Gold you can use in the Event Store
While the Seasonal Gold is pretty awesome, those that have already completed their Battle Passes won’t get much out of the 20 Battle Stars being provided to them in the near future. Epic Games has yet to address the oversight, though hopefully we’ll hear something from them soon. Fortnite is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
