Fortnite Battle Royale is getting a new update tomorrow and with it, a brand new play mode which is going to be available for a limited time only.

The new play mode will pit five teams of 20 players against one another. A short trailer showcasing the new play mode has also been released, and you can check it out below.

The new Fortnite Battle Royale play mode is just one of the features Epic Games is planning to add to the game. Last month, the developer revealed that they are planning to introduce a Blitz Mode for shorter matches and a new iteration of the 50 vs 50 Mode which has been made available previously.

We’ve been hammering away at Limited Time Modes! Getting you multiple playlists (solo, duo and squads) during LTMs is at the top of the priority stack. We’ve been using multiple data points (including your feedback) to iterate our existing LTM’s and to build brand new LTM’s. We are planning to quickly spin up a dozen or so LTMs, some of these may be more straightforward (e.g. along the lines of Sniper Shootout, Sneaky Silencer etc.). We also use LTMs to test new Shooting Models.

From there, we want to make internal improvements so we can introduce more involved LTMs (e.g. “floor is lava”).

Modes we plan to run in the next month or so:
Blitz Mode (shorter matches!)
Drop into the first circle
Generally less time between circles
Team sizes in between 50v50 and squads
50v50 v2

Fortnite Battle Royale is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
