Fortnite is continuing to grow its fan base and will need to make sure they have the servers that will be able to accommodate these players. Having servers in different countries means that the ping rate will be reduced and so there will be less lag for players in countries that current do not have their own dedicated servers.

@FNBRLeaks and  have discovered the servers that will be added:

New Servers Being Added to Fortnite

The new servers will be in:

  • Seoul
  • Singapore
  • Ohio
  • London
  • Oregon
  • Paris
  • Dublin
  • Taiwan
  • Mumbai
  • Singapore
  • Belgium
  • Netherlands
  • Montreal
  • Iowa
  • Scarolina

Fortnite are using the Amazon Web Servers (AWS) and so are able to expand their servers when AWS has them available.

Here’s what the Director of Platforms at Epic, Chris Dyl, had to say about the relationship with AWS:

“AWS has the broadest and deepest portfolio of services that allow us to stay focused on driving innovation in our products rather than the basic infrastructure needed to get or keep a service running. Their unmatched scalability has been instrumental in keeping pace with our rocketing player populations.”

It’s thanks to AWS that the Rocket Launch live event at the end of Season 4 went of without a hitch and the AWS commercial sales vice president, Mike Clayville, had the following to say about Fortnite:

“Throughout Fortnite’s phenomenal growth trajectory, Epic Games has relied upon AWS to provide gamers with the best gaming experience in the world and to speed innovation by delivering new items, features, and play modes to the game on a regular basis. Together, we look forward to driving new player experiences, leveraging AWS analytics and machine learning services.”

we ( middle easterns ) play at above 120 ping , why there is no middle east servers ? , servers on turkey , saudi arabia , dubai and bahrin will be perfect , i know fortnite runs with amazon servers ( aws ) , at early 2019 amazon will open a server base in bahrin , hope fortnite take advantage of there offices , it will be awesome if we play on less than 50ms ping

My dude. I wish my internet was on your level. Also from South Africa 210-280 ping. I am so mad. I mean I can not switch weapons and buildings as fast as everyone else. And the more I play the bigger the difference I see. And the only other game with SA servers is Dota 2 and they have gotten so greedy. Like offline games are the only ones who are becoming enjoyable cause yeah. Ping is fun -_-

I KNOW RIGHT. I have seen petitions with more than 50k people who actually did the effort to sign in and do the petition. And there are a lot of them. Like there is a big player base in South Africa. And Epic should realize this

Johannesburg and Cape Town. Like 2 servers. All we need. Those 2 places will cover most of our ping needs

AWS now has a server in Cape Town, South Africa. You have a +-300k player base playing with 200 ping on EU servers. When can we expect African server??? Please, we also would like a fair game.. any update on SA server would be greatly appreciated. As epic forums have been flooded on this topic and not 1 response from Epic. We now have a number of petitions going just to try be heard. Disappointed to say the least..

Once again no response from epic games on the probability of african servers. Let me assure you that we are civilised here and have the necessary infrastructure and capability to have these components. Furthermore, as you (epic games) are aware there is a stable base of gamers to justify such investment. I find it extremely unfair and biased that we africans are subjected to handicaps and deliberate sabotage, with the whole “take it or leave it” attitude. Your (epic games) handling of this subject and lack of response epitomises the rest of the world’s approach when dealing with “the dark”… Read more »

We need a South African server. So tired of playing with a 200ms+ ping! We are better than a LOT of European players but lose because of a bad ping. There are MANY South African gamers (Jeez I bet almost every household has a guy playing PS4, PC or XBox games online) but the lag kills us. Come on epic, give us a server in Johannesburg. AWS is here, why not you?

Please create a server in the region of South Africa, I am from mauritius and every one here plays on a ping 250+
Its really bad. And we die because of that. People having better ping have a huge advantage over us.
