Clearly, with a base game experience, Survive the Storm mode, and spin-off Battle Royale mode, what Fortnite needs is more game modes. So the PvE Challenge the Horde mode will be coming to live servers on Oct. 5 as part of the “Horde Bash” update, bringing with it new gameplay, new items, and new heroes.
The new game mode sounds like a classic survival/horde mode challenge, with the Fortnite-esque addition of being able to construct your own defenses. The longer you can hold out, the greater your rewards, including a new Scavenger Llama, which holds four new heroes, nine weapons, two new defenders. Earn it by completing quests and playing the new game mode.
Also, in a likely effort to combat some of the issues people had with slower progression at the later stages of the game, this update will include “over 25 new progressions quests with rewards that range from Scavenger tickets to Legendary items!” Check out everything in store for this update on the Fortnite site.
