That's right, the players who top the leaderboards by the end of the event will get a share of a big prize pot.
Epic Games have revealed their new Limited Time Mode today, which should keep fans pretty busy for the next week. Epic Games explains that this new mode will allow players to take part in a "hotly contested" experience, as players will be facing off against other "self selected competitors" which presumably means anyone who has queued up to play.
Place between 50 and 5 and you'll get 13,500 V-bucks, while fourth, third and second place get 25,000 and the victor gets a whopping 50,000. That means you're more likely to run into more experienced and more skillful opponents.
Unlike the game's previous limited time modes, such as the recent introduction of Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War crossover event, Solo Showdown does not change the core Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay.
The Fortnite team will frequently update this blog with the Solo Showdown standings.
Solo Showdown has just been launched on Fortnite and it has made the game even more competitive. It lets you really put your skills to the test with prizes on the line.
