The development team are currently trying to fix several issues affecting Fortnite servers tonight.
Players who are seeing Fortnite Waiting in Queue error messages are the lucky ones who have been able to log in.
Others are still unable to get past that section of the sign in process, although it appears things are improving.
While Login services are still suffering a major outage, it appears some players have managed to start playing Battle Royale again.
The Fortnite status site confirms that games services are suffering “Degraded Performance”, while matchmaking is still badly affected.
And while matchmaking is degraded as a result of current account service issues, Epic Games have provided this update on tonight’s problems:
“Login is currently blocked across all Epic endpoints, including games, websites, and the Epic Games Launcher.”
“This is due to a database failure which we are working to resolve as quickly as possible.
“In a measure towards resolution, matchmaking will be blocked for a short period.
“Thank you for your patience!”
This latest outage has been ongoing for some players on PS4, Xbox One and PC for hours.
In that time many have been unable to get into a Battle Royale game, with no current ETA from Epic Games on when things may be fixed.
Fortnite does suffer from regular outages, although many do not last very long and are sorted in a short space of time.
Fans will be hoping that the latest problems do not carry on too long, as many Fortnite players will be eager to try out the new content added to the game today.
