Fortnite: Battle Royale also received a hotfix patch Thursday morning to fix a handful of issues introduced with the 3.5 update released Tuesday. And while the game was down on all the platforms, the PC servers were the first to recover and PlayStation servers took a while longer.

Regardless, Fornite: Battle Royale players are going to receive a free Back Bling item which can be redeemed in the game's store. Distributing these will require a little more downtime, but Epic says it'll be "including it as part of [its] planned update next week" to avoid fans completely losing their heads. For fans of the game's "Save the World" mode - the tower defense-style foundation of "Fortnite" - there's a "Troll Stash Llama" waiting in the loot tab this weekend.

The most notable of the bunch is one that asks you to dance on different Dance Floors. If the 50 v 50, or any mode, becomes popular we can certainly consider it as a permanent edition. We've seen that story before and that language suggests it was security related, with server maintenance typically scheduled to minimise impact to users. Epic Games is in the process of carrying out major upgrades to its database systems, but there's no word on when Fortnite will be playable again.

The company detailed the upcoming mode in its v3.5 patch notes in recent days, shedding light on everything players can expect.
