This week, a significant outage has rendered Fortnite's servers unreachable to players for the second time this week. Almost a month after the debut of Fortnite: Season 4, Chapter 3, the v22.10 update was published on October 4 with a new Explosive Goo Gun, tweaks to the maps, and Superstyles for the Battle Pass skins. \n \nMidseason updates usually only require a few hours of downtime, but v22.10 was delayed by about 11 hours after developer Epic Games uncovered an unknown issue. \n \nSeason 4 has been the subject of much discussion because it is widely believed that this would be the final season of Chapter 3. The intricate plot of Chapter 3's endless loop has seen many franchises cross over, from Marvel to Star Wars to Dragon Ball Z. Spider Gwen has joined the Fortnite Battle Pass, an unknown material known only as "Chrome" has begun to spread across the island. \n \nAgain this week, Fortnite's servers have crashed, leaving people unable to play. Game Services, Login, Parties, Friends, Messaging, Voice Chat, Matchmaking, Stats and Leaderboards, the Item Shop, and Fortnite Crew, were all impacted by the outage that started at 19:45 UTC, as reported by Fortnite News. \n \nThe Fortnite website was the only part of the game unaffected by the recent disruption. There's an outage affecting millions of Fortnite gamers right now, and how long it will remain is unclear, according to a pop-up notification saying Epic Games is looking into it. \n \nSadly, there have been two significant outages so close together, but the new Chrome weaponry, improvements, and skins in Chapter 3, Season 4 could compensate for the lost time. \n \nSoon, the annual Fortnitemares event will begin, bringing with it the return of the Item Shop's Halloween-themed cosmetics designed by fans and crossover characters. \n \nGiven that the outage is still ongoing, it is still being determined whether or not today's Item Shop will be affected or whether or not players will receive compensation for the recent hardships.
