Fortnite Introduces Competitive Solo Showdown

Fortnite Introduces Competitive Solo Showdown

The gameplay remains the same in the solo battle-royale styled game, with the only difference being the point system.

This mode sounds as if it's truly for the best of the best. The prizes for the rest of the top 100 aren't anything to stick your nose up at, either: 2nd-4th place will get 25,000 V-Bucks, 5th-50th will get 13,500, and 51st-100th will get 7,500. For the next few days, players across PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile will be able to take part in the Solo Showdown, a limited-time competition to determine the best Battle Royale player. Finishing first in a match will earn you a full 100 point, which drops all the way down to just 25 points for places 76 to 100.

The players who have competed in 50 matches will unlock a unique spray.

There are some pretty substantial prizes to those that can place themselves in the top 100. Second place gets 94 points, and third place receives 91 points. V-Bucks is basically the in-game currency in Fortnite, which allows players to buy things like skins and emotes. Earning V-Bucks, rather than purchasing them with real money, has never netted much of a return.

Laurent Koscielny was another French player set to miss out on World Cup following his Achilles injury. He went off injured in Marseille's Europa League final defeat to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.

All the standard rules and match regulations of Solo mode apply here.

The Solo Showdown mode will be playable through 7am PDT / 10 am EDT / 3 pm BST on Monday, May 21st. Instead, Fortnite Solo Showdown will keep track of a player's performance during 50 rounds. Eastern, 7:00 a.m. Pacific.

At the conclusion of their post detailing the Solo Showdown Limited Time Mode, the developer teases that they "have a major announcement about competitive play next week". Epic Games hasn't confirmed anything about this so far which means that we'll have to wait in order to find out whether or not Fortnite is actually getting a competitive mode.
