A New Mode to Fortnite Will Allow You to Win V-Bucks

Epic Games has revealed the new mode Solo Showdown, which is currently in Fortnite‘s Limited Time Mode very soon. But a new detail just popped up today that will probably make the game very popular in a hurry for people who like to buy things.

Today the developers announced a system in which people will be rewarded with V-Bucks in the game for where they placed after everything is over. So now the game has an extra little wrinkle in it where you’ll be rewarded for performance from now until May 21st when the mode ends. Below is the complete payout system and how it will work toward an overall total for the entire community. Good luck to all your pros!
