You play solo matches with exactly the same rules, weapons, and equipment.

Fortnite has introduced a new limited time mode called "Solo Showdown", which adds a new competitive play experience to the battle royale side - and the developers are also teasing "a major announcement about competitive play" for next week. Instead of manipulating the core game, the Solo Showdown event is a test for esports that will send ripples into Fortnite's future. Once the limited time mode ends, the top 100 players will receive a prize. Standings will be posted to the Epic blog "regularly", so you'll be able to keep track of your progress and the competition there.

If you're a frequent window shopper of the Fortnite in-game store, you'll know that those V-Bucks will go a long way in customizing characters with skins, emotes, back blings and more. It would cost you almost $400 to purchase 50,000 V-Bucks yourself, or nearly $200 to purchase 25,000.

But the prizes aren't the most exciting thing about Solo Showdown.

We'll be using the Solo Showdown as a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players. They feel that a competitive mode is in the pipeline over at Epic Games. You'll need to be 16 or over to take part, and you'll need to play all 50 matches to be eligible for a prize. Epic Games hasn't confirmed anything about this so far which means that we'll have to wait in order to find out whether or not Fortnite is actually getting a competitive mode. The event starts today and ends on May 21 at 10 a.m. ET.

Your first 50 matches in the Solo Showdown LTM will be counted towards your Score.
