Fortnite Celebrates 1 Million Players With Survival Mode

The latest milestone signals the addition of a much-desired mode that will debut at the end of August.


Epic Games recently reached a Fortnite milestone with 500,000 players but it came and went without much fanfare. This time, Epic is celebrating the new achievement of one million players by rewarding those players with the much-desired Survival mode. The news comes by way of a tweet let loose from the official Fortnite Twitter account:

The game, currently in paid Early Access, already inspired a few comparisons to the zombie mode of Call of Duty and other similar survival experiences. Fortnite's standard gameplay mixes up the formula a bit, but players have been wanting a straight up Survival mode since they got their hands on it.

There are no details on what this Survival mode exactly entails when it comes to gameplay, but it will be available on August 29th. We'll certainly update when it goes live or when Epic reveals more information.

If you're already one of the million playing Fortnite or even if you're considering giving it a go during Early Access, be sure to head to our How To Play Fortnite hub where you'll find guides like How To Unlock Hero Classes and How To Increase Your Power Level.
