Announced at The Game Awards, Epic has revealed that their incredibly popular Battle Royale mode for Fortnite that pits teams of fifty people against each other, making it less of a battle royale and more of a war.

The new mode is only available for a limited time, from now until December 17, as the first in a planned series of unique content and modes set for the game. This time, two teams of fifty people each try to kill every single other person on the other team. It's a different dynamic to the same battle royale mode people already know.

Epic has also noted that Fortnite has exceeded thirty million accounts, with 1.3 million concurrent players last weekend.

You can watch a video of the new mode here. It runs through December 17, so get your time in now.
