Fortnite’s Chapter 2/Black Hole Event has the Internet Losing Its Mind! (Nerdist Newsl)


– Fortnite’s Chapter 2/Black Hole event has the internet losing it’s mind. Fans of the Battle Royale
Fortnite have been wondering how Fortnite Season 10’s
finale was gonna top itself. And it turns out, the
answer was for Epic Games to simply shut down the whole dang game. Over the weekend, Fortnite players found the entire game collapsing
into a singularity as the Battle Royale island
was sucked into a black hole. Ever since that moment, players
trying to sign into the game have been stuck watching
this black hole for hours. Which has lead to millions
of views on Twitch and YouTube of a swirling blue circle, while occasionally numbers would appear. And while this has lead fans to speculate if these numbers are some sort of code or Easter egg, one
confirmed hidden surprise is that if fans enter
the classic konami code up up down down left
right left right b a start it gives them a mini game to play. Of course, many believe
that this is all a precursor to something even bigger, and based on some of the leaks popping up, which we will break down in a few moments, it could be the launch of
season one of chapter two. However in the meantime, fans have taken to social media to express their thoughts and frustrations about
the #FortniteBlackout. First off, official
Playstation support weighed in, saying please be assured
that your inventory items and V-Bucks are secure
during the Fortnite blackout. For any other Fortnite
questions, please visit help.epicgames.com. Well that’s certainly got to
be a relief for some people, but that certainly didn’t
put everyone’s fears at ease, like streamer @CouRageJD
who said, Fortnite is gone, Twitch isn’t loading, I’m terribly scared I
might have to go outside. Some people were trying
to figure out exactly what caused this and
@Friskkmkay might have figured the whole thing
out and the culprit is a certain naughty goose
from another viral game. OMG, I know what happened
to @Fornite game. It’s certainly as good
an explanation as any, but figuring out what
the strange numbers mean became an internet
obsession, like @timthetatman who tweeted everyone trying to figure out what the Fortnite numbers mean. And even Esports team got
in on the speculation, like @teamsecret who tweeted
what do the numbers mean? 11, the average age of a
hashtag Fortnite player 146, the amount of hours
you will have to wait for season 11. 15, the amount of days until
you get bored of season 11. 62, the amount of Skittles we have eaten since the black hole started. Okay, well we don’t know about you but 62 Skittles seems on the low end. There. All right, others took
to Twitter to express their frustrations like
@MedySignoret who said nice. Fortnite is still down,
now I have no excuse to not do my homeworks and go outside, GG. We will give ten to one odds that schools will see test scores rise
as a result next week. @SypherPK turned the
knife a bit more tweeting. Imagine your parents
said finish your homework and do all your chores and
you can play Fortnite all day. You finish all of it and then epic said. Even Satan himself got in
on the viral tweeting action torturing Fortnite fans
with Fortnite is dead, just like your hopes and dreams. Yeah Satan we live in 2019, we know. But some people found the silver
lining to this whole thing like @LilTreProd who said Fortnite ended a couple hours ago and I
finally went downstairs to speak to my family, they
actually pretty cool people. And ZexRow from TSM who
said Who knew the best thing for Fortnite’s viewership on Twitch was to take away the gameplay. It’s the age old adage give the
people what they don’t want. But maybe the most sobering
tweet of them all was from the unofficial Fortnite
news outlet @FortniteBR. I think the fact that we
actually cannot handle Fortnite being offline for 12 hours kind
of tells you that addiction really is a thing. We bet some people feel like
they were being attd with that. But what does all of this mean? Well as we mentioned, based on
some of the leaks popping up, it appears that all of this is a precursor to chapter two season one. Now, as always these should
be taken with a grain of salt, but it’s fair to say
these leaks do feel real, so we will still throw up
a quick spoiler warning in case you care about that sort of thing. According to Leaks, we
will be getting a new map as well as new features,
like hiding in barrels, and carrying down teammates. There will also be new cosmetic changes as well as the addition
of boats and pogo sticks. But it’s no surprise that
Fortnite’s actual creator, Epic Games, has been
mom on what will happen when the game comes back,
or if it will at all. At the end of the day, the internet is continuing
to do it’s thing, but when can players expect
to sign back into Fortnite? Rumors are now swirling that
fans could see something as early as Tuesday. But we will see. What do you folks think? Are you pissed you couldn’t
play Fortnite this weekend? Did you just switch to Apex Legends? And what do you think will happen once Fortnite comes back
online, let’s discuss. Thanks for watching, if
