Today we're revealing our new Limited Time Mode: Solo Showdown. You'll also get a unique spray just for taking part.

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.

Here's more from Epic Games, who confirm: "Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode". That's right, the players who top the leaderboards by the end of the event will get a share of a big prize pot.

What's different is that instead of being paired with random competitors, all of the opponents you come up against will be fighting for the same prize.

Fornite Solo Showdown Limited Time Mode has been announced, with more news on competitive play coming next week.

The standings will be continually updated throughout the duration of the event on the blog. If you crave testing and improving your own skills, give it a try and let us know what you think. It would cost you almost $400 to purchase 50,000 V-Bucks yourself, or nearly $200 to purchase 25,000.

The other teams under consideration included the Broncos, Chargers, Ravens, Redskins, and 49ers. According to Schefter, the official announcement will be made at some point on Thursday.


Curiously, Epic says that the Solo Showdown mode is just a "one-off stepping stone", as it figures out how to create more events that work for "all types of players". Epic is teasing a big competitive announcement for next week.

Your first 50 matches in the Solo Showdown LTM will be counted towards your Score. Get some practice knocked out in the standard solo queue in Fortnite Battle Royale, but make sure you get your 50 placement matches done before the end date.

The new mode is going on from now until May 21st at 10 AM ET.

You must use an Epic account registered on or before May 15 to be eligible for the event.

Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
