New Fortnite Mode, Solo Showdown, Available Now For A Limited Time


Fortnite Battle Royale often adds new wacky game modes, like 50 vs 50 or the much-memed Thanos game type made in conjunction with Marvel for Avengers: Infinity War.

This mode sounds as if it's truly for the best of the best. As an added incentive to participate in the contest, everyone who plays at least 50 matches will receive a unique spray, regardless of if they place in the top 100. Get some practice knocked out in the standard solo queue in Fortnite Battle Royale, but make sure you get your 50 placement matches done before the end date.

"In the Solo Showdown LTM you will be placed against other self-selected competitors making this the ultimate test of survival".

Cardi B Is Helping YouTube Launch Its Revamped Music Streaming Service
YouTube's latest push into paid music streaming faces stiff competition from rivals that already command massive audiences. The service will launch May 22 and include features such as personalized playlists based on a user's YouTube history.

There are some pretty substantial prizes to those that can place themselves in the top 100. There's 50,000 V-Bucks in store for first place, 25,000 V-Bucks for those ranked second through fourth, 13,500 V-Bucks for fifth to 50th, and 7,500 V-Bucks for the rest. Yeah, Fortnite always tracked your performance across matches, but now it's putting its V-Bucks where its stats are.

But instead of only getting a bland victory banner and some bragging rights for their troubles, Solo Showdown winners can get the chance to win some V-Bucks, Fortnite's in-game currency that is used to buy a range of cosmetics.

In order to qualify, you'll need to play 50 Solo Showdown matches. Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode. Eastern, 7:00 a.m. Pacific.
