Fortnite Players To Get Up To 1,000 Free V-Bucks For Server Downtime

Epic Games will most likely reward Fortnite players with some free V-Bucks due to the extended server downtime that happened earlier this week.

As many players are aware, Epic shut down servers on Monday, October 3. This was not originally intended and it happened due to unknown issues with Fortnite servers.

On Tuesday, October 4, Fortnite players received the v22.10 update, which was the first major update of Chapter 3 – Season 4. The update added a lot of new content to the game and Epic finally brought servers back.

In total, the servers were down for around 12 hours and it appears that Fortnite players will receive some free V-Bucks as compensation for this.

While having a free wrap is nice, there is no doubt that many Fortnite Battle Royale players would prefer to get free V-Bucks. However, we will have to wait and see when this happens.

The next Fortnite update is on Tuesday, October 18, and will bring a lot of new stuff to the game. The Fortnite Halloween event will start with this update and players will most likely get some more gameplay and map changes with it.
