Score Royale Limited-Time Mode Give Fortnite: Battle Royale Players A Much Different Objective
Rack up a high score to earn a Victory Royale.
Epic has rolled out a new update for Fortnite. This week's patch introduces new items and other changes to the battle royale game across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile, and it also marks the start of another new limited-time mode: Score Royale. [Update: Epic has announced on Reddit that Duos has now replaced Solo in the new Score Royale limited-time mode.]
As its name suggests, the object of Score Royale isn't to be the last player or team remaining, but to be the first to achieve the designated high score. Throughout the match, you'll earn points by collecting coins, opening chests and other loot containers, consuming certain recovery items, and eliminating other players, and the first to surpass the target score will be the winner. You can see the score breakdown, courtesy of the Fortnite website, below.
- Winning Score (Solo) -- 2000

Additionally, the initial storm circles in Score Royale are larger and move more slowly than they do in a typical Battle Royale match, which Epic says gives players "more time to spread out and search for loot." However, later storms close in much more quickly, making the late-game an intense scramble to amass points.
On top of Score Royale, Fortnite's ongoing Playground mode has also been updated with more items. The sandbox-style mode now features "a couple dozen" more ATKs to pilot, additional ramps to jump off, and a few more Rifts interspersed among the map. You can read more details about each mode in Epic's patch notes.
Beyond the new LTM, update 5.30 added the recently teased Rift-to-Go to Battle Royale, which functions like a portable rift that you can activate to warp high into the air and skydive back down. The patch also made changes to controller sensitivity, although these have been poorly received by players and will be undone. Most importantly, the update added the ability to thank the bus driver, as a fan petition humorously requested.
