Fortnite gets exciting new game mode in special High Stakes event


Epic Games aren't shy when it comes to experimentation in Fortnite. Interesting special events, like 50 v 50 and fighting against Thanos have been shaking things up now and again, and the brand new Fortnite event, High Stakes, is no different.



The Getaway is a whole new mode which does away with a single team winning and instead allows the opportunity of having four winners at the end of the game. There are four safes that can be found throughout the entire map, all of which have a precious jewel in them.

You have to find a safe, bust it open, grab the valuable and dive off in your van before anyone else, while at the same time being on the lookout for enemy teams that might foil your heist.

But of course it wouldn't be Fortnite without costumes and cosmetic items. You can buy the stylish Wildcard outfit for 2,000 V-bucks and choose to wear one of four different masks, each with a different card suit on it. You can also buy the Ace Pack and get access to the Ace Outfit, Swag Bag Back Bling and 600 V-Bucks. However, there are also challenges to complete that will get you some sweet rewards.



Playing 10 matches of The Getaway will get you 5,000 XP, doing 500 damage to an opponent who is carrying a Jewel will unlock the Suited Up Spray, if you pick up a Jewel in 5 different matches of The Getaway you'll be rewarded with the Cash Flow Contrail, and if you complete all three of those challenges you'll have the Crowbar Pickaxe in your possession.

The High Stakes event is live right now so hop on the battle bus and get searching for those safes. You can download Fortnite for free on the Switch and iOS, and you can sign up for the Android beta on Epic's website.
