Fortnite To Get Battle Royale Mode
This year has seen the rise of a new genre of games that could be called the battle royale genre. This has mainly been on the PC so far but it is now starting to find its way onto the Xbox One. The latest game to announce that it will be jumping on this bandwagon is Fortnite, the co-op sandbox survival game. (You can read our review of Fortnite here.)
Fortnite is currently in Early Access but has already had some updates, this latest one that will add the battle royale mode will arrive on September 26th. The game mode is set to see 100 players squaring off against each other in a fight to the death. Now survival is no longer your only concern.
The developers have explained that it is easy to get into the game, just open the game and select Battle Royale. They have also thrown out a note of caution. They are pretty optimistic that their servers will break, especially to begin with. Although this isn’t a great thing, it’s nice for a developer to be honest with us for once.
The developer has also released a code of conduct for the game which sadly seems to be more than necessary for a game like this. The rules they have released are as follows.
- Respect other players. Be graceful in victory and defeat. Discriminatory language, hate speech, threats, spam, and other forms of harassment or illegal behavior will not be tolerated.
- Play fairly and within the rules of the game. Don’t cheat, AFK, grief, exploit bugs or glitches, team up in groups larger than the game mode allows (e.g. in solo matches do not work with other players, respectfully kill them instead) or impersonate others.
- Keep account information safe and private. Giving access to your account puts you at risk. Do not share your account information or the account information of others.
- Good luck and have fun!
If you come across anyone breaking any of these rules then you can easily report the player using the report button provided.
If this isn’t enough to tempt you, until September 18th there is 25% off the Early Access version of Fortnite.
