“Power-Leveling-Event” as compensation for server failure


On December 29, 2021, the servers of the battle royale shooter Fortnite (from 26,82€ at buy) unavailable for several hours. At first it started with disconnections and long queues, later a login was no longer possible at all. The Epic Games team had already announced compensation for this failure, and the specific details have now been published via Twitter.

Accordingly, a so-called “Power Leveling Event” will take place shortly, where you can earn additional experience points. The team did not reveal how big this bonus is, but did not reveal any other basic data: “As a thank you for your patience during the December login problems, the starting signal for a power leveling will be given on January 8, 2022 at 1:00 am German time Weekend. This runs until January 10th at 1:00 pm. In addition, everyone who has logged in during the Winter Festival will receive a new Crescent Shroom Pickaxe before it appears in the shop. ”

If you had planned to level your current Fortnite Battle Pass anyway, you should definitely keep this weekend free. Thanks to the XP boost, you should certainly be able to unlock one or the other additional level – including the respective rewards. Last updated video: Chapter 3 Season 1 Flipped overview trailer
