Fortnite is turning into a massive action game (or MAG) with the introduction of a mode that will enable two teams of 50 players to fight against one another in its Battle Royale game type. This will set Fortnite apart from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which has capped its team size at 8 in custom matches.
During The Game Awards, Epic announced the new mode and revealed that it is launching tonight. You can boot up the shooter and try it now.
Here’s the trailer of the 50-on-50 mode in action:
Fortnite: Battle Royale is free on PC and consoles. You can separately buy into its wave-based defense mode, but that is not necessary to experience the online competitive action.
