Fans of online multiplayer game Fortnite have been left unable to play the game, which has been replaced by a black hole.
Fortnite allows up to 100 players to fight individually or as part of a team to be the last standing on a virtual battlefield.
On Sunday, the island in which the gamers play was destroyed by an asteroid.
Fans had been predicting a dramatic finale of season 10 which kicked off in August.
Epic Games – which owns Fortnite – had confirmed “The End” event would take place on Sunday 13 October.
A countdown timer appeared in the game, above the rocket at Dusty Depot.
Fortnite also deleted all of its tweets and is running a livestream of said black hole both on Twitter and game-streaming platform Twitch, which around 40,000-60,000 people are currently watching. According to some reports, the total number of viewers across all platforms is more than six million.
