Fortnite is the game that’s gotten everyone talking (and battling) and it’s not difficult to see why.
The easy-to-master and insanely rewarding gameplay and mechanics have enthralled the whole world.
And it’s definitely quite a feat to pull off a game that’s suitable for almost every skill level.
Kids, pro-gamers and even rapper Drake are getting onto the Fortnite hype, and now that season five is well underway, fans are gagging for any more information on what’s coming and when.
Luckily for those who are currently eating, sleeping and breathing Fortnite, some clever fans have trawled through the game files in the hopes of finding some clues as to what might be coming in the future.
From what’s been unearthed in the season five files, it seems like players can expect a Limited Time Mode called Tactics Showdown, though it’s not known when that might be coming.
Tactics Showdown was first teased back in season four and hopefully it’ll be landing sooner rather than later.
Epic Games said on the new LTM: “This mode encourages tactical combat and building by putting a cap on the amount of resources and ammunition players can carry.
“Player-built structures also start off with less health than normal, and when players are eliminated they will drop fewer resources than normal.”
Alongside the tidbits from Epic Games, players have also gleaned quite a lot of information from the Loading Screen.
It reads: “Focus on the Fight – Winning in Tactics Showdown requires careful aim and thoughtful use of building materials.
“Build Smart –Try using natural cover in order to conserve resources!
“Don’t Spray & Spray – The cap on how much ammo can be carried is lower in this mode – make every shot count!”
From the sounds of it, it looks like matches will be getting a lot more tense, so this might be a mode for the pros.
It’s being speculated that the Limited Time Mode will be launching alongside the next update for the Battle Royale game, but there’s no actual date been confirmed as of yet.
Fortnite has seen its fair share of controversy, and it always in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The game has come under fire from parents and teachers who have deemed the game to be too addictive to be suitable for children.
Recently a 15-year-old British boy became the first in the UK to be recognised as having a gaming addiction by the NHS.
The diagnosis was issued after it emerged the boy had missed a whole year of school to stay at home and play games, which included Fortnite.
The game has won a whole host of awards since its launch back in 2017, and is now available on pretty much every platform you can think of.
From iOS to Android, from PC to Nintendo Switch, if it plays games, it’s guaranteed you can play Fortnight on it.
The Fortnite train is showing no signs of slowing down, and its loyal fanbase just seems to be getting bigger and bigger.
