Fortnite players have been pretty miffed the past 24 hours or so, with server issues pulling the massively popular shooter offline for many. Developer Epic Games is only too well aware of this, and has decided to make amends by offering a number of freebies.

First up, the Battle Royale version of Fortnite will be offering plays the chance to pick up a free Back Bling gift this weekend. Meanwhile, Save the World players can hit up the loot tab for a free Troll Stash Llama.

In addition, Epic Games also revealed that it will release a pack of Battle Stars for Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold for Save the World gamers next week.

In case you missed it, Canadian warbler Drake recently threatened to include Fortnite lyrics in a new song, but only if Epic Games releases a Hotline Bling emote for the game. This comes not long after it was revealed he's actually a big fan of the shooter after turning up in a live stream.
