Fortnite Battle Royale is arguably the biggest game in the market right now and it just keeps getting bigger.
Fortnite publisher Epic Games says that player placements and performances 'will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event'. While this doesn't necessarily change any of the core gameplay mechanics that fans of the original Solo mode are used to, it does have a pretty major difference, so let's run you through what you need to know about it. Not bad! But it's not exactly free money, because you will have to put in some decent hours to complete 50 matches in under five days. 1st place will get you 100 points, 2nd 94 points, 3rd 91 and so on.
The new mode plays just like any other standard solo match, 100 players drop onto their location of choice in the map, gather supplies, kill everyone else while trying not to get killed themselves, rinse and repeat until they're either dead or the only one left standing. Second to fourth places will earn 25,000 V-Bucks each. Get out there and prove your skills, get on the ladder, and earn some valuable V-Bucks. "To thank you for participating, play 50 games and get a unique spray".

Aside from Jetpacks, the aforementioned datamine also possibly uncovered even more content to come to Fortnite during Season 4, with a Competitive Mode on the way, as well as a slew of new skins, pickaxes, and gliders. Rather than changing up the way you play the game with new additions, like Thanos, or different squad sizes, like the 50v50 mode, the latest way to play Fortnite changes the rules by not changing the rules, rather by changing the rewards offered.
