Fortnite adds competitive Solo Showdown mode for limited time

Fortnite adds competitive Solo Showdown mode for limited time

Today, Epic Games announced Solo Showdown, a new game mode that is the latest Limited Time event to hit Fortnite Battle Royale. You'll also get a unique spray just for taking part.

Here's more from Epic Games, who confirm: "Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode". FI also added, "The lack of "Playlist_Comp_Duos" and "Playlist_Comp_Squads" files suggests that it'd only be available for Solo play, though this may be done as a way to test things out before rolling it out to Duos and Squads at a later date".

(Epic Games)What is Solo Showdown and how do you win? That means you're more likely to run into more experienced and more skillful opponents. Queue up for the Solo Showdown mode for a hotly contested Battle Royale experience.

You'll need to play 50 matches to complete the event, and your placement in each one will be tracked to determine your rewards at the end.

Salman Khan and Bobby Deol are seen shirtless in the film - and Bobby Deol's chiseled body stands out. If the deal goes through then Race 3 will become the costliest Bollywood film ever for broadcasters.

The standings will be continually updated throughout the duration of the event on the blog. It lets you really put your skills to the test with prizes on the line.

If you're a frequent window shopper of the Fortnite in-game store, you'll know that those V-Bucks will go a long way in customizing characters with skins, emotes, back blings and more.

The developers say that Solo Showdown is "a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players", and are promising, "a major announcement about competitive play next week". Epic is teasing a big competitive announcement for next week. Don't get too excited, though: remember, this is a ranking of everyone that plays at least 50 matches in the mode. Instead, Fortnite Solo Showdown will keep track of a player's performance during 50 rounds.

(Epic Games)When does Solo Showdown end and are you eligible? You can play your matches on console, PC, and iOS.
