Fortnite - Battle Royale: New lightning fast mode brings more action

With patch 3.3 for "Fortnite", Epic Games is also bringing new skins for PvE and PvP mode!

An average round in the battle royale shooter "Fortnite" lasts between 20 to 30 minutes. Admittedly, many players usually give up the spoon in the first few seconds of a game. With the update to version 3.3, developer Epic Games is now introducing a new mode that allows players to meet more quickly. In "lightning fast mode" the maximum fight time is only 15 minutes! In this case, however, it is not the players' fault.

Fortnite: a storm is brewing


There are three factors for the virtual demise in "Fortnite": enemy players, falls from deadly heights and of course the storm. And it is precisely this purple storm that is drawing in much faster, which creates extreme time pressure. This means that Epic Games also guarantees shorter rounds. The developers also made the following changes to the Battle Royale mode with Patch 3.3:
