    Season 5 launched this morning, bringing with fortnite weapons a new battle pass plus a suite of changes both little and big. Developer Epic Games just announced it would be taking down servers to explore matchmaking and login problems that was cropping up over the course of the evening. As usual, there's no word on bandwidth, however you can keep track of the status .

    It is a big drawback for a day which was going fairly well for Epic Games, even if a few server problems over at PlayStation Network happen to be giving PS4 users some difficulties. It doesn't seem to be a terrific day on the technical side of things overall.

    Fortnite has had some intermittent technical problems recently, most notably some matchmaking issues that caused the developer to postpone the much-anticipated Playground style for weekly. But it's been some time since it saw extended unplanned downtime, and so we hope that isn't what we are looking at here.

    Fortnite has one of the most aggressive update schedules in the business, and it is apparent that upgrading a match so frequently can cause all kinds of unanticipated problems to develop.

    Last extended downtime was caused by errors that caused a crippling number of database queries, and Epic went into a fairly intense detail describing exactly what was going on. The company has a custom of a specific amount of transparency, so expect lots of upgrades if this goes on much longer.
