Fortnite Battle Royale Mode To Release As Standalone For Free Next Week


Last week, Epic released a brand new play mode for its Early Access game Fortnite, out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you're craving for some intense action but have yet to purchase the game, you will be able to enjoy the Battle Royale mode for free starting next week.

A few hours ago, Epic Games confirmed that the Battle Royale mode will be released as standalone for free on all formats on September 26th. A new trailer showcasing the PvP mode has also been released, and you can check it out below.

Download Fortnite Battle Royale for free on Sept. 26 on PC, PS4, Xbox and Mac. 100 players. One giant map. Last one standing wins.

The Fortnite Battle Royale mode has been developed following the huge success of PLAYERUNKNOWN's BATTLEGROUNDS, with the team finding that the game's experience could be a great foundation for a similar massive PvP mode.

We love Battle Royale games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 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 balance, we kept the PvP mode separate from the PvE mode and the new Battle Royale mode turned out to be so much fun we decided to share it with everyone to gather feedback.

Fortnite is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Battle Royale standalone release will launch on September 26th.
