Dev Tracker

Heya,

We've been seeing some confusion around "Corrupted Replays" today so I figured I'd drop in and clarify some things.

As of now any replays that were saved in a previous update will not work once a new one is released.

Example:

  • A replay saved in v3.5 will not be watchable in v3.5.1

However, in the future, we are working towards making replays work for the entirety of each major patch. This means that your replays would work until we have another major patch, which is usually every two weeks.

Example:

  • A replay saved in v3.5 will work in every v3.5 version (v3.5.1, v3.5.2, etc) but will be unwatchable once v3.6 releases.

So for the time being keep this in mind when planning your editing sessions and keep creating and sending us your Epic Fortnite submissions to the #ReplayRoyale contest!

Looks like we missed it in the hotfix guys, sorry about that - we will have it sorted out and added to the mode shortly.

Update, should be live now.

We’re investigating an increased rate of server crashes since the release of v3.5.2.

We’ll provide an update once we have more information.

Note: Just to clarify, you're still able to log in and find matches. However, we're looking into crashes that are causing players to lose connections to games they've already connected to.

Not at the moment but we'll provide one once we're ready to send it to our Mobile players. :)

Battle Royale 50v50 on Mobile

50v50 not being available on mobile was unintended and you should now be able to connect on your iOS device.

Hey there!

This is an issue we're aware of and we have a fix going in once v3.6 arrives next week.

I hope they add it, there doesn't seem to be a reason why they wouldn't.

Update: Soooo, while the LMG was supposed to be in 50v50 it turns out it wasn't in there. We're getting that solved right now so you should soon be able to find it. Feel free to shame me in the comments below! #Awkward :)

You just need to find it. :)

It's out there...waiting for you.

Thanks, friend! :)

While it was pretty funny to watch, it actually looks like you lost connection to the server which is what caused this. You can tell since you didn't lose any health in the storm.

So with the Battle Pass stars for free...will we be able to get them for season 4 if we're already maxed out?

No, these stars will only affect the Season 3 Battle Pass.

I just spent 4 hours yesterday sorting through all my replays, deleting and saving them accordingly so I could later record clips for my next video project, and now out of the blue, just cause there was a small update, apparently I cannot access any of the replay at all and I can only delete them, what the actual f , someone explain to me why the f is this a thing, I need these replays, I can't spend another week playing the game to be able to work on this, and many other creators can't either, seriously, fix this shit.

After each update, any videos recorded in a previous update will not be playable anymore.

This means if you saved updates in v3.5.1 and then v3.5.2 releases then any videos from the previous version will not be compatible with the new one.

In the future we're going to be working towards making that for every major update instead of minor one. Meaning all replays made in v3.5 will work for all v3.5 versions, but when v3.6 releases then only replays saved in versions of v3.6 will be available.

Hope this helps!

You'd be doing me a big favor if you posted that on your Twitter so we can possibly retweet later. :)

Thanks, we're aware of that and investigating it now. If you'd like you can monitor its progress on our Issue Tracker here.

Hey there! Just wanted to drop in and mention that we're looking into this and you can follow it's status on our Issues Tracker here.

As a temporary workaround just avoid searching for a game while in the "home" screen while playing.
