Upcoming Fortnite mode pits five teams of 20 players against each other

The next Fortnite special event will be the Fortnite Teams of 20 Limited Time Mode, according to the latest in-game notification. The addition of building mechanics was enough differentiate it at first, but Epic has been taking it one step further with the introduction of limited time game modes.

Fortnite Battle Royale gets a new Teams Of 20 mode starting tomorrow. It doesn't show any gameplay of the Teams Of 20 mode in action, but it offers Battle Royale fans a sneak peek at what to expect when the mode goes live. Breaking each round up into five teams should significantly change how people play, especially if large groups of players are able to organize into 20 person teams with voice chat and squad tactics.

The battle royale genre is, without a shadow of a doubt, the hottest property in video games at the moment, with the likes of Fortnite and PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) topping just about every statistic that matters.

The Fortnite Teams of 20 Limited Time Mode will likely play similarly to the 50v50 mode, which we saw a few rotations back.

Facebook Messenger Lite adds video chat
The social media giant has noticed that video chats are extremely popular among users of the standard Messenger client. It said that during 2017, there were 17 billion video chats in Messenger, which is up nearly two-fold since 2016.

The timing as unpleasant for the developers of Bluehole, however, who tried to sue Epic Games.

Fortnite is in early access across PS4, Xbox One and PC.

As it is, Fortnite is leading the battle royale trend on consoles and for good reason. Teams of 20 will be no different, bringing old and new players alike to the arena.
