Fortnite Battle Royale just got a mode 50 vs. 50 that's all I ever wanted to be a neighborhood game of cops and robbers. Fosters a hive mind approach to a battle royale game that works surprisingly well.
Fortnite is a game about building forts, shooting zombies and fighting the apocalypse. In September, the developer Epic Games released a royale battle mode for the game that looks a lot like PlayerUnknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds . As the storm approaches, 100 players collect weapons and ducan to be the last standing. Fortnite The Battle Royale variation on the subject is its incredible fortification construction mechanics. When bullets come down, players can build shelters with the materials they have collected.
Millions of players have joined Fortnite Battle Royale partly because it's free, and partly because it's a more fluid battle royale experience than, uh, that other game.
The new mode 50 vs. 50 of the game changes the dynamics of a real battle. Instead of moving in groups of two or three players, the new mode inspires a swashbuckling style of play. Players descend in cities like termites, scraping buildings for wood and trucks for metal. Small groups of seven or 10 meet with other groups of teammates as the playable area closes, and finally consolidate into larger and more intimidating mbades. It's easy to get caught up in what other players are doing. No leaders Although almost nobody communicates by voice chat, he feels very uneasy.
I played half a dozen rounds this morning. Each time, it took us a while to find a large army of enemy players. At that point, we would be fully armed. Teammates threw pistols and bandages at each other. After we were stocked, we would find some good place. Moments after seeing two or three enemies reach our territory before the pack, we set to work to build a strong castle type, dividing the duties between snipers and designing our refuge. Then, we would bathe them with bullets. When the roles were reversed, and we were the ones who infiltrated, some teammates rushed to cover themselves while others tried to surprise the defensive line of the opponents.
The new mode 50 vs. 50 made me more comfortable changing roles I did not normally take in a game Fortnite Battle Royale. With so many close friends, I felt better when trying new strength-building strategies or trying my luck in a sneak attack. I knew I would have coverage. And I was not always paranoid about a good shot that knocked me unconscious because the enemies were not so stupid as to shoot at my swarm of solo teammates. That gave me the opportunity to remain friendly and help them with whatever they were doing.
If you play Fortnite Battle Royale in squad mode of four people made you feel part of a small machine, 50 vs. 50 is like being part of a group of mercenaries instead of a coalition of soldiers. There is power in numbers.
Although this mode is good, Epic does not promise to keep it forever. The company says it will only be available until December 17. But as we have seen in other online multiplayer games, Overwatch for example, these "limited time" modes have a way back.
