Fortnite brings 50v50 to life for a limited time
Epic Games has announced that Fortnite is updating, giving players the chance to participate in 50V50 matches, for a limited time.
50v50 is available to play right now, and in this new version, each team has a bus that approaches from opposite directions of the map. On the map, the friendly bus has a blue outline, and the enemy has red.
The final storm circle is visible on the mini-map from the start, and players are given 10 minutes to loot the map as the storm closes in on the circle, then 5 minutes to fight, and another 5 minutes as the storm shrinks to the end. Supply drops come in batches of 3-6, fall every two minutes, and only land in the final storm circle.
A dotted line has been added to the map to indicate “battle lines” between the two teams. While players can cross the line, this will make running into enemies more likely! Other tweaks have been made, including increases to resource gathering, item spawns, ammo, and more.
For all the details about the V3.5 update that released with this news, check out the official site.
