Unlike the game's previous limited time modes, such as the recent introduction of Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War crossover event, Solo Showdown does not change the core Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay.
The Fortnite Solo Showdown limited time event has been revealed, giving skilled players an arena to show off their shooting and building prowess against other capable users.
Earlier this week, some very committed fans of Fortnite Battle Royale dug into the game's files and uncovered content that seemed to suggest that a competitive game mode is on the way. Second to fourth places will earn 25,000 V-Bucks each.
This could mean that the best players are removed from the standard run of the game, making for a different experience lower down.
The Fortnite team will frequently update this blog with the Solo Showdown standings.
Players will compete in a version of the solo Battle Royale mode that will see them fight for a spot on the leaderboard, with the top 100 players receiving a prize. It lets you really put your skills to the test with prizes on the line. And even if you don't win, you'll get an exclusive spray just for taking part (so long as you complete 50 matches).
"We'll be using the Solo Showdown as a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players", Epic Games adds. They feel that a competitive mode is in the pipeline over at Epic Games.
The event could help shape Fortnite competitive play, which is coming soon.
Your first 50 matches in the Solo Showdown LTM will be counted towards your Score. The contest starts today and ends on May 21, 2018, at 10:00 AM ET.
You must be over 16 with a registered Fortnite account and need to play at least 50 Solo Showdown matches.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
