Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode in the Works

Battlefield 5 Battle Royale Mode Rumored Ahead of EA Play Reveal

Fortnite is a popular action-shooter video game that's now free to play and boasts more than 45 million players worldwide. Earlier this week the upcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" was reported to get a battle royale game mode.

The choice to run a double XP weekend and the 50v50 event is interesting as it competes directly with the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds free-to-play weekend on the Xbox One.

When today's maintenance ends, you'll find a new version of the 50v50 limited time mode.

Fortnite's content update 3.5 is now rolling out on all platforms as maintenance kicks off. We also don't know if Fortnite will be available on all platforms (console, PC, and mobile) in China.

Coli Outbreak Linked to Romaine Lettuce Expands to 16 States

No criminal charges to be filed over death of pop star Prince
Neither Prince's name, nor that of his drummer and assistant Kirk Johnson , appears in the civil settlement agreement. Oxycodone, the generic name for the active ingredient in OxyContin, was not listed as a cause of Prince's death.


Two teams with 50 players each face off to see who is the best.

Changes to the 50v50 from its debut appearance this past December include putting the teams on separate buses that approach the island from different directions.

Following last week's 11-hour maintenance outage, Epic has given players 20 Battle Pass Stars and 1,600 Seasonal Gold as a token of their appreciation. The Light Machine Gun however is a Battle Royale mode exclusive, and offers a fast rate of fire and a 100-round magazine. Players are given 10 minutes before the circle starts to shrink, then another 10 minutes as the circle begins to shrink to the new position.

With Season 3 nearly coming to a close in Fortnite Battle Royale, those who picked up the Battle Pass are likely getting real close to that Reaper skin (read John Wick) and those mysterious Tier 100 challenges. Because you have a huge team around you, you can practice building and figure out the ins and outs of the game without needing to worry too much about running into an enemy player. The Minigun is a bit controversial because of its long startup time, so I wouldn't be surprised if it gets vaulted at some point with this becoming the weapon of choice for assaulting bases and large crowds.
