Whilst Player Unknown Battlegrounds continues to be the new hotness, other online service-based games continue to evolve and add new modes that could take inspiration from the PC behemoth! After the Mob Wars update to GTA Online, Epic Games have released a new mode for Fortnite called Battle Royale.
So, arriving to Fortnite players on September 26th is Fortnite Battle Royale. 100 players. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last commander standing wins.
But what did Epic Games say about this new mode? “We made a PvP mode for Fortnite. We love Battle Royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version. A few months ago Epic’s Unreal Tournament team began experimenting with the mode while the original Fortnite team kept updating the core game. The new Battle Royale mode was so much fun we decided to share it with everyone to get feedback. To maintain game balance we kept the PvP mode completely separate from the PvE mode.”
Fortnite was a popular game on its release here at TiX. The release of Destiny 2 has put a dent in my Fortnite playing time, but this mode looks insane and I can’t wait to check it out!
