The new Battle Royale mode in Fortnite will pit 100 players against one another as they battle to see who is left standing. In terms of gameplay, Fortnite‘s Battle Royale promises that traditional Battle Royale experience with some of the building elements fans of Fortnite enjoy. How exactly the building dynamic will work in Fortnite‘s Battle Royale remains to be seen, but it appears you will be able to erect structures as well as set traps for unsuspecting enemies.

PvE and PvP will be kept separate from each other, as the Battle Royale mode will use different characters than the ones players have in the PvE. Other changes players will find in the new game mode include limited inventory space, crouching, and increased fall damage.
