Fortnite servers be down for maintenance at least once every two weeks. When the Epic game developer usually comes with a game-changing update.
These changes often include new materials, weapon balancing, bug fixes, and cosmetics. However, if it is time for a new season, any new features can be introduced to the island.
How long will the fortnight be down?
Fluctuations for each change. But often it is anywhere from two to four hours. A great update to an event at the end of the season and saves long idle time. When the idle time runs out, the PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch, and all of the mobile servers below will be reactivated.
What can I do when the server is down?
You cannot run Fortnight during idle time because there are no active servers to connect to. A reasonable idea is to keep your game client open and ready to install the update before idle time. That way, you can quickly download a new patch and reboot your server.
Where can I check the status of the server fortnightly?
For more information about server downtime, you can visit the Epic Game Status page or check social media. Sometimes builders confirm idle time, so be patient. If there is a delay, the Fortnight Status Twitter account will notify you.
