Fortnite Getting “Battle Royale” 100 Player PVP Mode
Huh, I wasn’t really expecting something like this.
Fortnite, a co-op base-building horde mode shooter, has received a PVP mode called Battle Royale, which pits 100 players against each other on one giant map. As nuts as that sounds, it gets even crazier since the base-building aspects are still here. The devs sighted PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as a source of inspiration (if it wasn’t painfully obvious).
The mode is free and currently available in public beta (although they call it a public ‘test’), completely separate from the main PVE mode. Hopefully it’s better balanced than some other games that are trying out new mods (yes, I’m talking about you, Overwatch Team Deathmatch) There’s also a trailer in case you want to check out what Fortnite: Battle Royale looks like.
