Fortnite continues to gain in popularity as Epic Games announces that the game broke the 800,000 concurrent users mark over the weekend.
In a tweet, the developer apologized for the server issues that plagued the game over the weekend, blaming it on the amount of players. The developer went on to add that it is “working hard” to prevent the same issues form occurring.
We’re sorry for the trouble this weekend. The Battle Bus had 811K concurrent players on Sunday. We’re working hard to keep it in the air.

As well as announcing the new milestone, Epic Games revealed that a new update is going live for the game today that will make changes to both Battle Royale and Save the World modes.
The update will add the option to uncap the game’s framerate on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, make it so Slurp Juice can spawn on the floor, improves point light shadow rendering performance on consoles and PC, and optimizes player character animation to improve performance.
Finally, following the update, team members will be shown in a list next to the options menu with how many kills each member has and this list can be used to toggle voice chat for each member.
