Fortnite's Battle Royale PvP mode just got a brand new mode that allows massive team of 50 vs 50 to battle it out in huge last-team-standing matches. According to the trailer and press release this is a limited-time feature, and I'm not exactly sure why. Fortnite has a lot of good ideas but it lacks central focus, and its evolution from early access to free-to-play with in-game purchases doesn't seem as wise a move in a post-Battlefront II market. A giant PvP mode might just be the thing to unify the game's base-building, tower defense and extensive upgrade trees into a cohesive gameplay format. Check out the trailer below for some of the hijinks you can get up to in 50 v 50 matches.
December 8, 2017 - Last night at the Game Awards in Los Angeles, Epic Games announced the availability of a new, limited time "50 versus 50" game mode for Fortnite Battle Royale. This limited time mode pits two teams of 50 against one another in a massive, last-team standing battle.
A trailer showing off the mode in action can be found here:
Epic Games has also announced that Fortnite continues to see quick growth, with more than 30 million players since the game’s July launch. This past weekend, the game also hit a new milestone, peaking at 1.3 million concurrent users.
Fortnite Battle Royale is available now for free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. The limited time 50 versus 50 mode will be available through Sunday, December 17, with additional unique game modes and content planned for the future.
