Some PC Fortnite: Battle Royale player are experiencing major freezing on the game’s loading screens, and Epic has already addressed it.
Epic Games Community Coordinator Sean Hamilton posted a Reddit thread on the Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit Wednesday afternoon, saying there is an issue on PC that is causing players’ games to freeze while on the loading screen. Hamilton said Epic is working on a solution and that it would update fans via social media when they had fixed the issue.
Some commenters pointed out to Hamilton, though, that even console players are having issues with game freezes since the 7.30 update, a patch that has evidently caused the game several issues.
Several hours before the 7.30 update was set to go live earlier in the week, Epic’s servers went down. The game services, login, and store all experienced major outages Monday evening, and the outages lasted for roughly three hours before Epic announced its game servers were back online.
Hamilton’s original thread was posted more than three hours ago, and it appears there has been no fix yet. This article will be updated when Epic gives another update on the freezing.
