Fortnite is offline - reduced to gaping black hole

Fortnite's gaming universe has been replaced by a gaping black hole, leaving the user-base effectively locked out from playing the game after a massive meteorite detonated the map. This event marks the end of Season 10, which online players witnessed as a streaming of meteors into the map before it was annihilated. Since the astral collapse, Fortnite has deleted all of its past Tweets, while live streaming a video of the black hole.

Players had been predicting such an end to the season since August, which Epic Games - the owners of Fortnite, had confirmed would happen on Sunday, October 13. Many of the fans who've actively engaged in Fortnite have been ardently expressing their shock withdrawals from not having access to the game.
