Ever since the PvP mode was released in late September past year, the #Game Developer worked hard to make the game more interesting for its playerbase. This blog post aims to share technical details about the challenges of rapidly scaling a game and its online services far beyond our wildest growth expectations'. It has only been a month and the game has crossed a 3.4 million mark with its concurrent players.

While players are happy with the updates they received, it's not a secret that Epic Games dealt with some major server issues.

In what can only be described as spectacular transparency, Epic fully outlined six separate issues that caused the server problems that arose on February 3 and 4 last weekend.

In addition, Epic Games added West Coast (USA) and Brazilian servers on Xbox to increase connection quality and decrease latency. "This 60 FPS mode is tuned for each console to maximize frame rate while minimizing loss of visual quality", Epic says.

While this concurrent player success for Fortnite is definitely worthy of celebration, it's important to note that this particular feat of surpassing a previous record set by PUBG is likely partially due to the fact that the Battle Royale portion of Epic Games title is free-to-play, while the latter title is not. And we also shipped v2.3.0 with significant bugs.

Beside gameplay changes, Epic Games will keep adding new cosmetic items to the game.

In other news, Epic has just dropped a patch, which includes a new crossbow and Valentine's Day skins for Fortnite Battle Royale, and tweaks for the Shooting Test limited-time mode.
