Today, Epic Games has some exciting news: on September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will be free for everyone on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Mac. This PvP mode puts 100-players on a giant map with destructible environments, where they’ll combine their Fortnite building and combat skills to be the last one standing.
Epic Games has also released an all-new gameplay trailer for Fortnite Battle Royale.
Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE campaign remains in paid Early Access, with a lot of great updates in the works, including new game modes and some spooky October content.
What’s Fortnite Battle Royale?
It’s a 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite that will be free for everybody on Sept. 26. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.
So, what’s the catch?
No catch. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and we will not sell items that give a competitive advantage. At some point in the future we will sell other things including cosmetics or compendium-like content.
Squads are Coming!
On September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will introduce squads. Also, we’re working to improve the feel of combat, controls, weapons, movement and inventory.
How Can I Play?
On September 26, Battle Royale will be available as a free download on the Epic Games PC launcher, PlayStation Store and Xbox Store.
