Do you think you are the very best to survive in an environment where a) everyone will kill you and b) they are all real-life architectural manners? Well soon you get the chance to prove it. Epic finally adds a competitive mode to Fortnite this fall.
Epic made the announcement in a state of development post today.
"We are aware of a strong desire from competing players for more opportunities to compete directly against each other within the same match," the developer wrote. "The development recently began for a robust competition system that allows all players to compete with each other and be recognized for their results."
Players expect to play, but the exact shape of the mode is still in flux. However, it will be informed by Epic's Bambi-like (if Bambi had millions of dollars giving to Twitch streamers) the first step into the Fortnite competitive scene. The Summer Skirmish series has proven to be a valuable test bed for competitive formats, explains Epic.
"We've learned a lot of experiments with scoring schemes and formats, trying to find the best balance between simplicity, entertainment, servery and competitive integrity," said Epic. "Expects us to continue to drive and support competitive events after the end of Summer Skirmish as we lead into next year's official Fortnite World Cup. "
