Blitz is a faster-paced version of Battle Royale. The match begins with the storm moving towards the island, and the delay between each circle is shorter than normal, creating matches that are 15 minutes long or less. The map also has extra loot and resources. Profile Stats count in this mode, so fight hard for the Victory Royale!

Mode Details

  • The storm is already moving in at the beginning of the match, choose your landing spot carefully!
  • Wait time between storms is significantly shorter than usual; maximum match length is 15 minutes.
  • Increased chances of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%.

Pleasant Park

The soccer field in Pleasant Park has now been changed into a football field. This was expected as Epic Games announced partnership news with the NFL and was perfectly timed with the release of the NFL skins mentioned above.

Greasy Grove

A favorite among many Fortnite gamers, Durr Burger has shuttered it’s doors.  Really not sure if Epic Games is making over Durr Burger or closing it permanently.  Could this be an early sign that popular Greasy Grove may be replaced soon? Keep in mind, there is a corrupted area very close to Greasy so something big could occur in this area.  Pure speculation on our end.

Retail Row

The “Boo” Halloween store is now vacant and boarded up.  I’m guessing it will be occupied shortly with a Christmas Holiday themed store which would make perfect sense.
