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.
