Fortnite Adds a 100 Player Battle Royale Mode
Epic has announced that its early access co-op survival game, Fortnite, will be getting a new 100-player Battle Royale mode, and this is due to release on September 26. Battle Royale takes the game mode popularised by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and meshes it with the destructible environments of Fortnite.
The Battle Royale will be rolled out to early access players on September 26, although the players can get into the Battle Royale public test right now by simply selecting the mode at the opening menu. Epic warned that “the servers will probably break and there will be other crashes and bugs” during the test phase, so be prepared to hit the occasional snag. It also posted a code of conduct for all FBR players:
- Respect other players. Be graceful in victory and defeat. Discriminatory language, hate speech, threats, spam, and other forms of harassment or illegal behavior will not be tolerated.
- Play fairly and within the rules of the game. Don’t cheat, AFK, grief, exploit bugs or glitches, team up in groups larger than the game mode allows (e.g. in solo matches do not work with other players, respectfully kill them instead) or impersonate others.
- Keep account information safe and private. Giving access to your account puts you at risk. Do not share your account information or the account information of others.
- Good luck and have fun!
The Game is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Yeah, we made a PvP mode for Fortnite. We love Battle Royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version. A few months ago Epic’s Unreal Tournament team began experimenting with the mode while the original Fortnite team kept updating the core game. To maintain game balance we kept the PvP mode completely separate from the PvE mode. The new Battle Royale mode was so much fun we decided to share it with everyone to get feedback.
This is also a great time for new Fortnite players to jump in because for one week only we have a 25% discount on our Standard and Deluxe Edition Founder’s Packs. (Sale runs from Sept. 12-18.)
We are really excited about Fortnite Battle Royale and can’t wait for you to play it. This is just the first version of the mode, and we will update Battle Royale and the core Fortnite game throughout our Early Access period and into launch. We are excited to grow the game with you and thank you for joining us on the adventure.
