Epic Games Launcher has become one of the busiest servers in the world in the last few hours. You might not be aware Epic Games is the creator of Fortnite, one of the biggest multiplayer games to come out ever. Although, Fortnite’s audience is vast and all around the world, they’re not the ones causing this massive server crash.
It is the fans of the Grand Theft Auto, that are lining up to play the biggest title in the series. GTA V released back on 17 September 2013, so why the sudden jump in players now?
GTA V is now free to play on the Epic Games Launcher and this has led the server to crash all around the world. Gamers from all around the world have lined up at home, ready to play this game. A huge amount of traffic has been put on lower bandwidth so that there is enough space for all potential new users. The server has been intermittently facing downtime as well.
The open world of Grand Theft Auto is now open to all who can get this game working on their PCs. The game itself provides an exuberant story with the freedom to do just about anything. The smash-hit title provides for hundreds of in-game hours of exciting and fun missions to go through as you follow the saga.
The immediate demand for this game is so massive that it caused equally massive worries for people working at Epic, struggling to keep their servers up and running. They announced that the users might face an Error 500 message while logging onto the page and trying to download the game. They also asked the gamers to be patient as they might also experience server crashes and launcher failures too.
Even Fortnite players have complained that this had caused some troubles for them as they logon to play their favourite online shooter game.
