Amazon Web Service servers will soon be implemented across the Middle East region which might solve issues with connection and ping troubles in Fortnite.
Fortnite players across the Middle East have been begging Epic Games to add servers in their region in order to lower their ping rates.
For players who are unfamiliar with the term, ping is a connection to another server. For instance, players in America might see pings vary from 5-30 while Middle Eastern players have to play with nearly 1,000 ping.
Thankfully, Amazon plans to add their Amazon Web Service (AWS) into the Middle East region which would certainly help Fortnite players earn more Victory Royales.
AWS in the Middle East
According to Amazon’s press release, AWS will be expanding by opening servers in the Middle East region which will bring cloud technologies that will allow users to have more freedom in what they do online.
With Amazon servers being located in the Middle East, Fortnite players would see a significant drop in ping.
Middle Eastern players have been asking Epic to implement Fortnite servers in their area with the company offering to provide updates every few months.
We work with multiple cloud providers to supply the infrastructure for Fortnite servers globally. None of these providers yet have capacity available in the Middle East region, but we expect to have a solution in the next few months. We'll keep you updated as we learn more!— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) January 7, 2019
While there has been no official announcement of new Fortnite servers being added into the Middle East, this is a great first step.
Hopefully within the next couple of months Epic will add new servers thanks to AWS arriving in the Middle East, so Fortnite fans can fight for Victory Royales while experiencing minimal lag.
Will Fortnite actually get dedicated Middle East servers in Season X? It still remains unknown, and the developer has remained quiet on the issue. We will continue to keep you up-to-date with all the latest Middle East server news as it is made available.
