Fortnite's hotly-anticipated season five launched yesterday across its myriad platforms - including Nintendo Switch, naturally - but the sheer influx of players and the usual update bugs coalesced to create an evening of downed servers and consistent glitches.

For those players that managed to get in a game, matches were peppered with players frozen still with lag, assets failed to render properly and some elements of the map completely refusing to load. It made for a very frustrating launch - check out the tweet below for a taster of what it's been like so far.

Epic Games briefly took the servers down in the early hours of this morning, but they're back up now and (at least for the time being), Fortnite seems to be back up and running.
