Fortnite V3.5 is up and running. The update's biggest prize is the new 50v50 V2 Battle Royale, which pits two teams of 50 against each other. The new light machine gun is also exciting news. Just be sure not to overlook one more exciting announcement: From today (April 19) through Sunday, April 22, you'll get double experience in Battle Royale.
Double experience is a tantalizing reason to play Fortnite ceaselessly, and you can be forgiven for pumping the entirety of your weekend into farming for those sweet numbers. There's just one problem: The new update is causing some issues with Fortnite crashing. Epic is looking into the problem, so hopefully it won't take a bite out of your weekend plans to build forts and shoot people from the safety of those forts.
