Fortnite's one-year anniversary to be celebrated with in-game events

In brief: It's no secret that Fortnite: Battle Royale has been a phenomenal success since it launched in September past year, but is the free-to-play title making the kind of cash that reflects its popularity? As it turns out, Fortnite actually had the server capacity to handle all of the people looking to create Playground matches - where it failed was in the matchmaking service itself.

But Epic Games hasn't forgotten that, and it's celebrating the one-year anniversary of the game with special quests and challenges for its players, which also give some unique rewards. It was a few days later that Playground mode returned to Fortnite, and now Epic has delivered an update on just went wrong with that launch.

Also of note, SuperData announced that the Battle Royale genre is the most popular video game genre in the world right now (of no surprise to anyone) with an estimated 700 million hours of related content watched online, only expected to grow throughout 2019.

The Battle Royale Mode has to match up 100 players to duke it out.

As the postmortem details, every node in the matchmaking group has a list of dedicated, available servers.

Starting on July 24, new in-game challenges will be available.

To fix playground mode, the matchmaking service was separated into its own service cluster.

It's a particularly impressive number considering the game is free to play and has been out for about a year.

The glitch was only recently discovered today, so it's likely that Epic Games won't be able to fix it for a good while, unless they think it's amusing enough that it would be better to just leave it in.
