"Fortnite" Battle Royale has recently reached 30 million players, which is not surprising at all. It is one of the fastest growing games, and Epic Games, the game developer, has done a fantastic job with it. The PvP mode for "Fortnite" was released in late September, yet the game has attracted so many players and it keeps growing rapidly.

The video game has received numerous updates since its release. The game developer made sure that players stay entertained with the game with big weekly updates, new items, bug fixes, and performance improvements.

A week ago, Epic Games announced they would reveal a new Game Mode for "Fortnite" Battle Royale, and that is what they did yesterday. Once again, the game developer listened to the player base as this mode is the mode players wanted to see.

The new 'Fortnite' game mode

The new mode will keep the battle-royale style of gameplay, but instead of players grouping into squads or going into a fight all alone, they will be put into a 50-player team. "Fortnite" Battle Royale has finally received a 50v50 game mode, and players are loving it!

This mode is much different from any other mode as players have 49 other teammates. While the mode has its advantages and disadvantages, it is extremely fun and it's something new and refreshing.

Before the 50v50 game mode, players were able to group into 4-player squads, duos, or just go all alone against 99 other players in a free-for-all mode.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a limited-time game mode. "Fortnite" players will be able to play it until December 17, so make sure you grab your teammates and join this huge team battle.

Special rules

The 50v50 "Fortnite" Battle Royale game mode has a few special rules. These rules are exclusive to the mode and they are not applied to the other modes.

The first rule is that friendly fire is turned off, meaning that you won't be able to deal damage to your teammates. Considering that friendly fire has been a big issue in squads, this is a welcome change.

Secondly, players will be able to use voice chat only with the squads they join the lobby with, not with the entire 50-player team. However, they will be able to revive any teammate.

At the end, there will be a limited visibility of non-squad teammates and players won't be able to see them until they land. This might make things a bit more complicated, but it will definitely make this game mode more exciting and more fun.
