Fortnite Floor Is Lava LTM And 8.20 Update Coming Tomorrow

Wooooooooaaaaaaoooohhhh--the floor is on fire.


Fortnite will soon gain a new limited-time mode. According to its in-game News feed, a new LTM called The Floor is Lava is "coming soon" to the battle royale game--presumably as part of this week's 8.20 update, which developer Epic has confirmed will roll out for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile tomorrow, March 27.

Not much more is known about the LTM as yet. The mode's description states, "Get to high ground or build above the lava that's overtaking the island," while an attached label says the mode is "coming soon," but there's no more clues as to precisely when you'll be able to play it.

It's possible the mode will launch with the upcoming v8.20 update. The most recent update, v8.11, added the Flint-Knock Pistol, One Shot LTM, and more--here's hoping the next patch is similarly bountiful.

Fortnite recently hit another huge milestone in player numbers--the game has now amassed over 250 million players in total, with a record concurrent player count of 10.8 million. Elsewhere, Fortnite studio Epic announced at GDC that it's created a $100 million fund for developers that was made possible thanks to the success of its battle royale phenomenon. What's more, Epic announced that Quantic Dream's PlayStation-exclusive titles including Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human are coming to the Epic Games Store this year.
