This is the error I get when attempting to run fortnite: Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Driver Load Error (1053).
Fortnite/battleeye does not support Linux. And it likely never will according to Epic Games.
Is there anything I can do to get Fortnite running?
Also sorry for my terrible response time.
Play it from a supported platform.
Unfortunately I don’t have much experience, could you maybe specify a little bit more? Should I like launch it from a different launcher?
Idk why but I cant reply to you.
@Strit has been perfectly clear: Fortnite can not run on Linux.
But he said that I just need a different platform?
Sorry my bad just googled the meaning.
Yes, a platform that Epic officially allows Fortnite to run on. Windows, OS X… but not Linux.
While it is technically possible to run it with anti-cheat battleye, you risk to be banned forever, because fortnite does NOT ALLOW this on Linux because of reasons.
