Update, 12:15 PM EST, January 31: Replay functionality has now been fully restored, as Epic Games have completed the necessary maintenance.

If you’ve noticed some of your games not showing up in the replay catalogue in Fortnite Battle Royale, don’t panic, as Epic Games deliberately disabled the feature.

The replay functionality was one of the most requested features when the battle royale mode first rose to popularity, but it can put serious strain on both your hardware and the Fortnite servers.

As such, it requires constant maintenance, and Epic Games selected January 30 as the day to perform some of the necessary upkeep.

Although they haven’t gone into specifics about the issue which was occurring, they explained that there was a problem with the feature which needed some attention.

Some players noticed that Marshmello’s music – which will be played at the Festivus event on February 2 – was audible while in replay mode, so this could be why Epic are being secretive about the issue.

While they investigated, the ability to view replays was been turned off – but it’s not all bad news.

If you do manage to have a remarkable game you want to watch back later, Epic has confirmed that any matches played during the downtime will be saved and watchable now that everything is back up and running.

Of course, you can also always use your devices’ own capturing equipment, if you are playing on PS4, Xbox One or PC, you will be able to record your gameplay with the inbuilt technology – although it’s not as powerful as the full functionality of replay mode of course.


Fortnite leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
