Epic’s Fortnite will receive its next big update mode with the “Horde Bash Update” releasing on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac on October 5.
The new update will deliver an all-new “Challenge the Horde” gameplay mode, a new in-game event, new heroes, weapons, and more.
Challenge The Horde Mode
It all starts in a staging area. You’ll have unlimited time, but limited resources to build a portable horde fort. Once you’ve designed the perfect fort, exit the staging area and party with up to three friends. Your forts will be ready for action when your team hits the ground. As you survive, you’ll receive more resources and more rewards to Challenge The Horde.
With the new update comes a new event llama. The Scavenger Llamas holds four new Heroes, nine weapons, two new Defenders. Earn the Scavenger currency by completing quests and playing the new Challenge The Horde mode. The Scavenger weapon set is delicate, but they’re all cheap to craft.
Introducing Scavenger Heroes with new, never-before-seen perks.
- Raider Soldier – Loves the shotgun and close encounters.
- Ammo Harvest Outlander – If you need ammo, this is your Hero.
- Trap Specialist Constructor – Get a damage boost & durability boost.
- Energy Thief Ninja – Generates and leeches energy from melee combat.
