What Is The Fortnite Power Leveling Weekend?
During the final days of December, Fortnite servers began experiencing some matchmaking issues which prevented players from logging into the game. The problems persisted for well over 6 hours and even reappeared briefly the following day.
As a way to apologise for the server downtime, Epic Games has announced the brand new Power Leveling Weekend. Starting at 7PM ET on Friday, January 7th until 7AM ET on Monday, January 10th, players will be able to earn double XP whilst playing.
So this weekend is the best time to jump into Fortnite and grind out some levels. Plus, players will also be able to get their hands on the brand new Crescent Shroom Pickaxe.
