Brand-New Fortnite Game Mode Is Finally Here

Fortnite has finally introduced the game mode we’ve all been asking for – Playground.

Basically, a mode where you can explore and experiment without having to worry about the competitive aspects of matchmaking.

Epic Games representative NeuronBasher posted the following statement on Reddit: “You have no idea how excited we all are to see the crazy amazing things folks do with this mode. We’re going to be paying very close attention and learning as much as we can so please make sure to share your thoughts and experiences as you try it out.”

Survive the countdown! The Storm Circles give players more room to hunt down opponents. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Victory Royale!

Mode Details

  • Final Fight plays similar to standard Battle Royale, but instead of the Storm circles closing all the way, the Storm stops after the 3rd circle.
  • When the circles have finished closing in, the final countdown timer will begin.
  • The remaining teams will battle it out until the timer expires.
  • The team with the most players remaining at the end of the timer wins!
  • In the event of a tie, the two (or more) teams tied for the lead win the match.

When it comes to weapons…
