Fortnite is expected to come back tomorrow after Epic Games pulls one of the greatest gaming trolls of all time. During the Fortnite Sunday event, all of the players and the entire map was sucked into a black hole and the game became unplayable. Many gamers were left confused as to what was happening. Epic Games gave no heads up, deleted all of their Fortnite posts, and have been livestreaming nothing but the black hole since the event happened. Fans of the game have been freaking out since. Personally, this gave me a good chance to catch up on some other titles that I have been neglecting.
Ninja and Daequan are excited:
After watching @LiquidChap s rewind videos I am more confident then ever that Fortnite Chapter 2 will be the most successful if there are a lot of changes. We all need to experience learning new Fortnite mechanics again and new weapons and of course the new map. CANNOT WAIT!— Ninja (@Ninja) October 12, 2019

As of now, the Fortnite blackout is still happening. Only a game with such a loyal fanbase could have the confidence to pull a PR stunt like this off. Thousands of players literally sat there watching nothing but a black hole for hours waiting for Fortnite to return. One very cool thing that Epic did is make a Durr Burger Galactica type of mini game if you entered the Konami Code while watching the black hole. The Twitter comments and memes have been great as always:

Season 10 finally came to a close on Sunday with expectations of a new map for Fortnite Chapter 2. Loyal Fornite players have been waiting for a new map for a long time, so Blerd is excited to see what is next (see below for a teaser trailer of Fornite Chapter 2).
