Why does my Mac always crash when I am opening Fortnite?

My Mac crashes every time I open Fortnite.

I have the same problem. My MacBook Pro shuts off completely when I try to launch Fortnite. I have had my computer do this before when running heavy tasks, but have since gotten it fixed and have had no problems outside of this. I’m still unsure whether it is a returning issue of the computer or if it’s an issue with the game.
