Free Fortnite content offered by Epic as an apology for downtime


Epic is sorry.

Fornite Battle Royale and Save the World players will receive free content as an apology for its recent downtime, Epic has confirmed.

“It’s been no secret that over the past 24 hours we’ve been experiencing issues with our services that have prevented many of you from playing Battle Royale and Save the World,” Epic wrote in a recent post. “We’re sorry. We know how frustrating this has been.”

The free content that players can redeem over this weekend is as follows:

  • For Battle Royale players, this weekend we’ll be offering a Back Bling gift that you can pick up in the store for free.
  • For our Save the World folks, this weekend we will be offering a Troll Stash Llama in the loot tab for free.

Moreover, Epic “will be granting a pack of Battle Stars to our Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold to the Save the World players” next week as part of the game’s regularly-scheduled maintenance.

Fortnite and Fortnite: Battle Royale are available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and iOS.
