Fortnite adds competitive Solo Showdown mode for limited time

Fortnite's first competitive mode is Solo Showdown

Fortnite Competitive Mode Possibly Being Developed

Fortnite has introduced a new limited time mode called "Solo Showdown", which adds a new competitive play experience to the battle royale side - and the developers are also teasing "a major announcement about competitive play" for next week. Instead of manipulating the core game, the Solo Showdown event is a test for esports that will send ripples into Fortnite's future. Buying 1,000 V-Bucks costs $10, so the prizes are nothing to sniff at.

The new mode is very different from others though as Epic Games are looking to really experiment with the usual solo gameplay. If you're placed 51 through 100, you'll get 7,500, which will normally set you back $60.

In order to be eligible for ranking, players must participate in at least 50 Solo Showdown matches.

The maximum score that a player can achieve is 5,000, but that would mean finishing in first place for all 50 of your Solo Showdown matches. It claims that Epic Games is developing a competitive mode for Fortnite. As with any good ranked mode, there will be a leaderboard players can check to see how they stack up against the competition, and once the game mode ends next week, Epic will hand out rewards to the top 100 players. Considering Solo Showdown is only available from today, May 17, until May 21, that doesn't give you all that much time to squeeze in 50 matches.

First place will net a whopping 50,000 V-Bucks, which is enough to buy quite a few skins from Fortnite's shop.

Curiously, Epic says that the Solo Showdown mode is just a "one-off stepping stone", as it figures out how to create more events that work for "all types of players".

There's no skill-based matchmaking here, and you might find yourself battling with top Fortnite streamers like Ninja, Myth, and DrLupo, who'll surely seek bragging rights in the mode.
