Fortnite patch delayed with server downtime arriving soon

This is good that they are willing to put a delay to find the issue prior to launch as to not repeat the terrible incident that left the game offline for nearly over 24 hours!

Epic Loot Games, a hobby shop located in OH, has been given a ton of unwanted attention ever since Fortnite exploded into a cultural phenomenon.

"We've discovered an issue that's going to delay the release of v4.2". If some Fortnite weekly challenges / quests aren't working properly for you, that's why.

To earn your 5 Battle Stars for the Season 4 Battle Pass, Fortnite players simply need to head over to the "career" tab at the top of the home screen.

Target cuts delivery fee by nearly half
Back in December, we reported that Target plans to bring same-day delivery to half of its store locations by the end of 2018. They have up until 7 PM Monday through Friday to place the order, then the box is delivered to their door the next day.

Currently, this option is not available on the Fortnite Mobile platform, meaning it's not an option for iOS users.

The new assault rifle variations seem to have showed up on Fortnite Tracker some time ago, with damage ratings and all the other stats you could want shown for both epic and legendary versions.

There are various ways that you could probably work around the Fortnite replay challenge, maybe by joining in a game and either immediately quitting out or doing your best to get killed quickly, but hopefully Epic will be able to fix this problem soon.

No reason has been given for today's delay, or how long it might last. Now there is no ETA for the downtime or the patch, so we're just going to have to wait and see. As of writing this article, Epic hasn't come out with any further updates.
