One of the biggest and most popular games in the world has been down for hours - and stunned gamers are using memes to cope with the blackout. According to Daily Mail, 5.5 million gamers were left dumbfounded on Sunday as the 10th season of Fortnite went out with a bang.
The Fortnite YouTube channel had a livestream of the event that shows the explosion which blew up the landscape in the game and dragged all of the players into a black hole. More than 5.5 million people watched the event, titled "The End", on YouTube and Amazon's Twitch video-game platform.
It is believed that Fortnite will return with a rebooted version featuring a brand new map. But as for now, the black hole is the only thing players can see right now, along with a big red exit button. Take a look at some of the memes that Fortnite blackout has inspired:
