Late last week, developer Epic Games published another hefty blog post about the future of Fortnite: Battle Royale. The free-to-play mode within the studio’s larger early access title, Fortnite, is getting a lot of attention from fans. They recently helped boost the game to over 3.4 million concurrent players. Now Epic is promising more limited-time modes to mix things up.
Iteration on Fortnite: Battle Royale began in December, when Epic announced its first limited-time mode, 50-versus-50. Instead of the last-man-standing format of the basic mode, the mode divided players into teams to work together on a much larger scale. The mode launched on Dec. 8 and ran through Dec. 17, only to return for the holidays.
The community must have reacted well, because Epic is planning to create more modes like it and rotate them out on a regular basis. The studio refers to limited-time modes with the acronym LTM.
“We’ve been using multiple data points (including your feedback) to iterate our existing LTM’s and to build brand new LTM’s,” Epic said. “We are planning to quickly spin up a dozen or so LTMs, some of [which] may be more straightforward (e.g. along the lines of Sniper Shootout, Sneaky Silencer etc.).
