There's a lot to do in Fortnite: scavenge, manage your inventory, build bases, manage your inventory, defend bases, manage your inventory ... the list is endless.

One thing you can't do, however, is battle against other players in PvP. That's about to change, though, as Epic Games today announced a new Battle Royale mode coming soon to Fortnite. It's a 100-player killfest. You start with just a pickax and, as in the regular game, you can scavenge for building materials, weapons, and traps, to create defenses or lay waste to your enemies.

The public test for Fortnite's Battle Royale is live now, with rolling invites going out to early access players. The full mode will be on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Sept. 26. You can learn more about the mode on the Fortnite site.

But you do not have to play the new mode, you have the option to play the original mode of the game as it used to, but if there are people who enjoy this new mode that hardly makes these people play it at Fortnite?

And now every developer and their Grannies will have a Battle royale game or gamemode.
