Fortnite’s Valentine event isn’t launching today [Updated]
Hope you PvE folks didn’t have your Valentine hearts set on that Fortnite update that was supposed to roll out today because… it didn’t. As we’d previously reported, Save the World mode was supposed to be updated with a themed questline, but it’s apparently been delayed.
“The patch is not set to release tomorrow. We’ll keep you posted on when we do plan on bringing it out though. :)” an Epic rep wrote on Reddit.
On top of that, players were apparently told that gold would reset, so people went out and spent it. The reset also didn’t happen, further inflaming the playerbase, which was already grumbly over the lack of communication and the dramatic shift of the game from being a PvE-centric building sandbox into a battle royale-focused PvP game with Save the World tacked on.
The Valentine’s Day buyables, however, made it in today.
