50 vs. 50 Will Be Returning to Fortnite For a Limited Time

Prepare yourself for the absolute insanity of a massive team fighting against another massive team, as Epic Games have brought back the popular 50 vs. 50 mode back to Fortnite for a limited time. The news came down today along with a trailer to hype the event, which you can watch below. Starting today the game mode will be available to all players as you can join in and be randomly placed on one of two teams with 49 of your frenemies that you’ve most likely killed or been killed by to face off against another 50 on the other side. First team to completely eliminate the other side wins, no matter how many are left.

The mode comes with the latest 3.5 update that went into effect today, bringing with it the light machine gun, the Mercury LMG (it shoots lightning), and Cyberpunk Heroes costumes. You can read the full list of updates for the game below.
