Epic Games has just announced the first competitive Limited Time Mode: Solo Showdown. Starting today, contestants will have the opportunity to battle it out and win prizes. Here’s the official announcement:
Today we’re revealing our new Limited Time Mode: Solo Showdown.
Trying to prove yourself on the battlefield? Queue up for the Solo Showdown mode for a hotly contested Battle Royale experience. Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode. Instead, you will be placed against other self-selected competitors making this the ultimate test of survival.
The Fortnite team will frequently update this blog with the Solo Showdown standings. Top performers will be rewarded at the conclusion of this competition.*
1st Place: 50,000 V-Bucks
2nd – 4th Place: 25,000 V-Bucks
5th – 50th Place: 13,500 V-Bucks
51st – 100th Place: 7,500 V-Bucks
You can see the full rules here.
We’ll be using the Solo Showdown as a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players. If you crave testing and improving your own skills, give it a try and let us know what you think. To thank you for participating, play 50 games and get a unique spray.
Stay tuned. We have a major announcement about competitive play next week!
The event will end on May 21st. You can find the official standings on the announcement page.
