When there’s scheduled maintenance for an update, the Fortnite servers always go down in preparation for the new update. here’s the current server status on April 19th, 2022.
It’s been a month since Epic Games released Fortnite chapter 3 season 2. The new season introduced two new mechanics to the game, tactical sprint, and mantling. However, the updates that have followed haven’t provided anything major.
The addition of the two new movement mechanics provided Epic with a chance to temporarily removed building in order to get players to test out mantling and tactical sprint.
Building has since returned to the game after a delay pushed back when it was added back to the game. Originally, data-miners confirmed that building will return nine days after the season launch, which meant it would come back last Tuesday.
Building has since been added back into the game following a delay. Initially, data miners confirmed that the building would return nine days after the season’s launch, which meant it would return on a Tuesday. However, it was actually added back on Saturday, April 2nd, 2022.
The season got off to a great start with a large number of players from chapter 1 returning to see how the game plays without the building mechanic. Although building is back in the core game modes, there’s a Zero Build permanent LTM where wins will count, unlike other limited-time modes.
We had the first major Fortnite update of the season two weeks ago, and Epic Games have announced the release of the second one along with downtime for the new patch. Here’s everything you need to know about downtime.
