The Big Robot-Monster Showdown Fight Is Over; Here's What Happened

In the run-up to the Fortnite World Cup finals, Epic Games is setting up an arsenal of exclusive event content. This means that theoretically any good fortnite player could rise to the top without having to learn a markedly different game, given time, dedication and talent.

The reason for the riot relates to the latest iOS update, which can now be installed on iPhone or iPad devices. They were unable to load into battle royale after installing Fortnite v9.40.1. Some say they encounter a "file corruption" error - others just experience crashes.

Epic's tweet states, "The countdown is almost over, and preparations are underway!"

Epic Games have announced an exclusive partnership with video service platform YouTube.

According to tech site PiunikaWeb, the version of Fortnite that is now available for download in the App Store is v9.40.2.

What's new in Fortnite 9.40? This is why users have been asked to reinstall the game. In Season 7, we saw a countdown on TVs dotted around the map.

"After further investigation, iOS players can delete the app and reinstall in order to resolve the update error", Epic said.

'Fortnite's Pressure Plant Mech was completed following this week's 9.40 update.

The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle was brought into the game, but now its suppressed variant moved to the Vault. The Storm Scout can store six rounds in each clip, tops out at 85 damage per shot, and has a reload speed of 2.7 seconds. There are a bunch of weapons and chests to get to, though, which is nice.

"Game Jam Hollywood tells the story of a secret Fortnite event in Hollywood, California". Some of the rifle's potential attributes have also been made available.

Playing Fortnite on the iOS 13 beta continues to be a nightmare for players, who have been complaining about performance issues and app crashes. If you enjoyed this article, why not share it on social media. The event will be taking place this afternoon (more on that below), but a big change has already happened: Epic just disabled the portals in Creative Mode and Playground, making it impossible to play either mode.

"We're aware of stability concerns on the iOS 13 beta for Fortnite Mobile. We therefore recommend not to use the beta version of iOS 13 at this time".

Apple will release the full version of iOS 13 later this year.
