Fortnite gets 'The Getaway' heist mode tomorrow

Fortnite is a free-to-play third-person shooter which features building mechanics and even a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds-like mode. The title has garnered incredible popularity over the past few months due to the developer's aggressive post-launch support and its addictive nature. Fortnite supports cross-play between Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, Mac, and mobile devices. As expected, Sony continues to block the feature on its platform due to the company's significant sales advantage.

The introduction of new game modes keeps players coming back for more. Fortnite wasn't this popular before Epic Games added the battle royale mode. However, new content is required to keep the "hype train" going. According to The Verge, Fortnite is getting "The Getaway" mode tomorrow. Just like any other heist mode, you have to work together as a team to crack a safe and carry a huge gem to a van. If you're able to do so without the enemy team ruining your plans, you win.

The outlet also confirmed that a new weapon called the "Grappler" was making its way to the game. It allows you to shoot a plunger-like projectile onto any surface and rappel up there. This will allow gamers to traverse the map in new ways, finding ways to surprise their opponents.

Are you interested in The Getaway? Let us know. What modes do you want Epic Games to add to Fortnite? The fact that so many Twitch streamers focus on Fortnite has also contributed to its success.

  • The children will love it!
  • This game continues to amaze me. Not because I play it, but because it seems to be listening to players. Everyone of my nephews and nieces and children their age seems to love this game. From the building to the dancing and the little side activities. The artistic styling may be off putting to some, but these are the same players that loved Minecraft so much. At least, that is the case with my nephews and nieces and their friends. Graphic fidelity and realism is nice, but it doesn't define or make a game successful. Look at Warcraft in the MMO space. As for the constant comparisons to PUBG.. I haven't seen a recent version of it, but what I did see (I bought it for the kids a few months ago), it is a terrible glitchy unpolished pile of nearly unplayable rubbish (on both an XBOX One and XBOX One X). I worked in the video game business (MMO) operations side and that is just an opinion from an avid gamer.
  • Thanks for the insight!
  • @RayWp7 I know what you mean. What I'm not too eager about is kids getting their parents to purchase character skins and parents enabling them.
