New Fortnite: Battle Royale 20v20 Limited-Time Mode Announced, And It Starts Very Soon
Five Teams of 20 mode is on the way.
The Solid Gold limited-time mode may now be over, but Fortnite players don't have to wait very long to take part in the game's next special event. Epic is kicking off another limited-time mode for Battle Royale on PS4, Xbox One, and PC today, March 8, and this one promises to be one of the most competitive yet.
Battle Royale's next limited-time mode is called Teams of 20. As you could probably gather from its name, this new game mode still features 100 players total, similar to a typical match in Battle Royale, but this time they're divided up into five teams of 20. You can watch the brief announcement trailer for the new game mode above.
Teams of 20 is one of roughly five limited-time modes Epic teased would be coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale "in the next month or so." The developer had said it was planning to introduce game types that feature team sizes in between 50v50 and squads (which features four-player groups). Other limited-time modes that players can expect in the near future include a modified version of December's 50v50 event, as well as a Blitz Mode that features shorter match times than normal.
Teams of 20 marks the second limited-time mode of Fortnite: Battle Royale's Season 3, following the Solid Gold event that ran last week. Season 3 kicked off in February with the release of Fortnite's 3.0.0 patch and the new Battle Pass, which features 30 more rewards tiers than previous Battle Passes; you can take a look at all of the Season 3 Battle Pass rewards in our gallery. Among the new weapons Epic plans to introduce to Battle Royale this season are jetpacks, although those were temporarily delayed due to a "last minute design issue."
