Fortnite Broadcasts Mysterious Signal on TVs Across Map

Fortnite Comet

With the mainstream popularity Fortnite has, it should come as no surprise that when the game isn't working there are many people wondering what is going on.

Update: And just like, that Fortnite is back.

The Twitter page said an update would be made once the downtime has concluded.

Issues have appeared in the past and a recent one ended being an all day problem.

Epic Games announced the downtime at 5pm BST today and it has meant that all players are now unable to play Fortnite while the team works to fix the issue. One of these promised something was going to happen today, and this seems to be the emergency broadcasts.

He then went to his vehicle and killed himself, according to investigators. "It's inexplicable", State Attorney Bill Cervone said. When additional deputies responded to the scene, they found the suspect dead as well, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

More than that, Fortnite has become the entry point to video games for many young players - and even self-identified non-gamers- making it feel akin to nostalgic, widely recognizable games like Pac-Man or Super Mario Bros. There probably is a real problem but the timing of this issue has led players to believe the comet will hit today.

The cryptic feed is accompanied by the sound of an emergency siren and features perhaps the most head-scratching hint so far in this whole saga: an image of a llama, front and center. But there's something new we certainly didn't expect to see in the sky: UFO-shaped objects that look more than just a little mysterious. Amidst the mania caused by widespread comet sightings, players are speculating more than ever about potential catastrophe after a unusual emergency broadcast appeared on TVs across the map today.

Either way, Epic is clearly having fun with its fans: Earlier this week, it added some in-jokes to the top of Tilted Towers, poking fun at the super-fans who are trying to solve the mystery. Just what does it all mean?

The comet has been getting larger over time, and it could be about to drop.
