Fortnite: Battle Royale and Save the World players will be getting a little bonus as an apology for the 14-hour downtime that hit the game last week.

On the Battle Royale side of things, players will be gifted 20 Battle Pass stars—enough to go up two tiers—as an apology for daily challenges that were missed during the downtime. The Battle Pass is available to purchase for V-Bucks (the game’s real-money currency) and can be leveled up by playing the game to unlock new cosmetic items, such as skins, emotes, and icons.

While Save the World players will be getting 1600 Seasonal Gold, which can be used in the Event Store to purchase a number of items.

Both the Battle Royale and Save the World compensation will be delivered alongside the release of update 2.4.0, which is expected to go live later this week.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
