Epic Games' decision to ape PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds seems to be paying off, because Fortnite Battle Royale pulled in more than 800,000 concurrent users this past weekend.
That's according to the game's official Twitter account, which apologized for issues with the servers over the weekend and pointed to the new high watermark for player numbers as a reason for the technical challenges the game sometimes faces.
We’re sorry for the trouble this weekend. The Battle Bus had 811K concurrent players on Sunday. We're working hard to keep it in the air.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) October 30, 2017
Fortnite was also patched overnight, delivering a bunch of changes including the option to uncap the frame-rate on PS4 and PS4 Pro. VG247 has the full patch notes.
