Do you think that you are the best at surviving in an environment where a) everyone wants to kill you, and b) they are all reality-changing architecture managers? Well, soon you will have a chance to prove it. Epic is finally adding a contest mode this fall Fortnite .
Epic announced the announcement at a developmental stage today.
"We are aware of the strong desire of competitive players for more opportunities to compete directly within a game," wrote the developer. "Development has recently started for a robust competitive system that allows all players to compete and be recognized for their achievements."
Players expect ranked matches, but the exact form of the mode is still in flux. However, Epic's Bambi-like (when Bambi had millions of dollars to give twitch streamers) is getting first steps in Fortnite 's competitive scene. The Summer Skirmish series has proven to be a valuable testing ground for competing formats, Epic said.
"We've learned a lot from experiments with scoring schemes and formats and tried to strike the best balance between simplicity, entertainment, server performance and competitive integrity," said Epic. "Expect that we will continue and lead competitions after the summer bout is over, as we move on to the official Fortnite World Championship next year."
