Fortnite Competitive Mode Possibly Being Developed

Fortnite Solo Showdown game mode

Take part in Solo Showdown to win up to 50,000 V-Bucks

If you're a frequent window shopper of the Fortnite in-game store, you'll know that those V-Bucks will go a long way in customizing characters with skins, emotes, back blings and more. Yeah, Fortnite always tracked your performance across matches, but now it's putting its V-Bucks where its stats are.

Epic has announced that things are about to get real in Fortnite Battle Royale. Cumulative scores will then be generated from across the player's' 50 matches.

Insanely popular battle royale title Fortnite could be getting a competitive mode if a new report is to be believed.

The folder only contains a solo variant, which either means this is what the mode is going to be, or that Epic Games will simply roll out competitive solo first before it expands it to duos and squads. They feel that a competitive mode is in the pipeline over at Epic Games. 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. Earning V-Bucks, rather than purchasing them with real money, has never netted much of a return. The Solo Showdown will be running from today through May 21st with players able to earn up to 50,000 V-Bucks and the top 100 players recognized for their achievement. You must play 50 Solo Showdown LTM matches to be eligible for a prize.

Gabi said the 27-year-old's team-mates had already tried to convince Griezmann to stay and he hopes the trophy helps. But the France global is linked with a move to Barcelona in the close-season despite being contracted until 2022.


However, the ability to earn these V-Bucks (in this large of a sum) is a welcome change to the current meta.

The Solo Showdown mode will be playable through 7am PDT / 10 am EDT / 3 pm BST on Monday, May 21st.

Epic Games will also have a huge presence at this year's E3, with even a huge "celebrity driven" party to bring players all over the world together in one room.
