Currently, Epic Games is impacted by server issues. So if you try to connect to Fortnite, you can’t make it.
Servers are back to normal
In a tweet published yesterday in the evening, the official page of Fortnite France announced to have “fixed the problems of connections to the game”. A problem also solved on the Epic Games side since the publisher also indicated it on Twitter. To confirm the facts, it is possible to monitor the status of the live servers on the dedicated page: a fix was successfully implemented at 19:32, French time.

On Twitter , the official page of Fortnite France announced to investigate concerns about game connection for players. Indeed, it could be that error messages like “error 91, 502 bad gateway, invalid client” hit players when they try to connect to the Epic Game Store on PC or on the game directly. Fortnite’s publisher also reported being aware of malfunctions affecting users’ connection. An event that follows the authentication problems of Xbox One and Xbox Series players that took place on April 02.
BUG, OUTAGE, CONNECTION ISSUES?
This bug seems to impact most players The majority of them say they are the victim of an infinite load while others found that the servers were offline. In addition to connection problems, players are also facing a malfunction of their friends list: the latter did not display the players’ friends in their entirety. The problem is therefore on the side of Epic Games which specifies “to be aware of the problems of connections to Epic Games accounts” and “will indicate as soon as possible a return to normal”. There is nothing for the players to do to solve this problem.
We’re aware of an issue with logging into Epic Games accounts.
We will update you when this issue is resolved.

As a reminder, Fornite went to v.16.10 on March 30. It is entitled Primitive Instincts and constitutes the sixth season of chapter 2. And it takes advantage of a pitch to fall on the ground: civilization has returned to a stone age where technology no longer exists…. Agents will have to confront dinosaurs, boars and wolves to create their own resources.
