It’s been just about eight months since Fortnite‘s Battle Royale mode launched, and in that time, plenty of players have become astoundingly good at the game.
Fortnite doesn’t offer anything like a ranked ladder for people who are looking to try hard in a competitive mode, but that all changes this week (at least temporarily).
Epic today announced the next limited-time game mode for Fortnite, and it’s called Solo Showdown.
As you can probably guess from the name, Solo Showdown will be an every-man-for-himself mode that’s inaccessible to players queuing as duos or squads.
Gameplay for Solo Showdown will be identical to the standard solo mode, which means that there won’t any of the tweaks to drops or new rules we typically see in other limited-time game modes.
You’ll want to be on your game if you’re going to enter Solo Showdown, because you’ll be scored on your performance in each game you play.
