For Battle Royale players, this weekend we'll be offering a Back Bling gift that you can pick up in the store for free. The developer claims that the problems stemmed from a critical database failure that required the team to take the game offline for a period of "emergency maintenance".

But it's more than that, as integration could be a key to Fortnite's continued success. It's not something that's easy to map from one to the other. Certainly we would love to try and be in that sort of space, but there's a lot of problems trying to get there. Of course, this direction of integrating game modes comes with plenty of things to consider since each class is different from one another and certain classes can either have a huge advantage or a huge disadvantage over another class.

The company recently had a chance to speak with PlayStation Magazine about how it ended up doing away with classes in the game, noting, "If we were to put those classes into Battle Royale, everyone would gravitate towards the one with the smallest hit box". Some fans on the Fortnite forums have expressed their frustration with what seems to be the developer's lack of attention to Save the World.

Thankfully, Fortnite game lovers can breathe a sigh of relief as all those rumors of Battle Royale shutting down is completely false.

Things could kick off in August 2018, followed by the same pilot program rolled out on iOS, which is now limited to players who have signed up and been invited to download the game.

Those are really fun palate cleansers. they allow us to do things we couldn't do in the core game. they give us the opportunity to break the game and tip everything on its head. Further changes are coming soon, including an updated 50v50 Limited Time Mode. One of the more interesting teased content updates, however, has got to be the increased player cap of the usual 100-man lobby.

Next week, we will be granting a pack of Battle Stars to our Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold to the Save the World players.

It should also be noted that one big platform is still missing, with Fortnite Mobile on Android not now available to download.
