If you're finding it tough enough as it is to survive in Epic Game's third-person shooter / tower defence title Fortnite
, you may want to stay indoors for the upcoming Survive The Storm update that looks to test even the most skilled survivors of the world.
Once the storm rolls through Fortnite
's world, your mission is to simply survive. The update will include the new Survive The Storm mode where special mutant storms rip through the world and present unique challenges, rewards, new weapons, new heroes, new defenders and plenty more. The threat will only be here for a limited time so you can either steer clear of the storm or dive head first into it and try and come out of the other side with some exclusive loot.
Here's a summary of all that's to come:
Survive The Storm Mode
This limited-time mode will test even the most prepared Commander. Gather resources during the day while battling increasingly more difficult threats every night.
These limited-time Storms have modifiers like enraged husks or limited health. Survive these Storms and you can earn some special loot.
