Fortnite wipes out game map, livestreaming a black hole in its place

Fortnite wipes out game map, livestreaming a black hole in its place

However, the Epic Games' battle royale title has been down for several hours after a Season 10 live event that has left the game unplayable with players staring at a black hole.

The first set of the game's new Fortnite Challenges have also apparently leaked, and include a range of tasks - from winning matches to catching fish - that'll no doubt help you progress your battle pass for season 1. "People saying the game has ended for good so do we get full refunds on the money we spent because no game means no nothing so we lose out!" It suggests various new additions to the Fortnite game, including the ability to let gamers drive a boat, swim, and jump around using a pogo stick.

Following its launch in 2017 by Epic Games, Fortnite has become the sort of pop culture phenomenon that entrances teenagers and baffles parents.

If that wasn't enough, players can heal their squad with the new bandage bazooka, carry their downed teammates to safety and even upgrade weapons at the new "upgrade bench" using their materials. They all focused in on an astroid frozen in time that had been looming above the map for most of season 10. They knew every mountain, building, and secret hideout, making it much easier to beat out rookie players.

See what's next for Fortnite below and stay tuned for further updates on the game's new season.

Aside from Pattinson, Kravitz joins Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon , and supposedly Jonah Hill in a still-undisclosed role. Kravitz is coming off her second season of HBO's " Big Little Lies ", which aired its finale in July.


So what exactly went down in this dramatic online event? But more rockets began to appear, coming out of more and more portals. Now, the meteor and six rockets came out of the rift.

The Sony and Nintendo support sites and Twitter have been answering questions about key parts of the Fortnite reboot that haven't been made public - specifically about V-bucks and all of the many items players have either paid for or earned over the years.

The whole mess was suspended in time for a moment, then was sucked into a single vortex.

You can exit this screen, but there's nowhere else to go. Epic has deleted all posts from its Fortnite accounts on social media, and the Fortnite categories on Twitch and Mixer have vanished.

As of Monday morning, the game still is still gone with an ominous-looking black hole taking its place.
