If anyone has been playing Fortnite and thought “it’s fun, but could use a little bit more variety”, this should be music to your ears: the Survive the Storm update will be available from Tuesday August 29th.
The update will include the new Survive the Storm mode, which appears to be more in line with the game’s original intention. You gather resources during the day so that you can survive the storm at night. Not only that, but there’s also the threat of mutant storms, which can throw challenges like limited health your way.
The mode appears to available for a limited time only, though whether it’ll be a monthly thing like Destiny’s Iron Banner is unclear at the moment. Of course, there’s exclusive loot to be earned as an incentive for players to engage with the new mode. You can also earn tickets to purchase the new high impact Hydraulic Weapons by defeating those mutant storms.
Along with the new heroes and defenders, this update looks to shake things up significantly for Fortnite. Have you been trying to Survive the Storm so far? What do you think of this update? Let us know in the comments!
