Epic has released the patch notes for Content Update v4.4 featuring Stink Bombs, the new ‘Final Fight’ LTM and more. Here’s everything you need to know about today’s release:
This new addition is nothing to sniff at, one whiff and they’ll be sprinting for fresh air.
Limited Time Mode: Final Fight: Teams of 20
Survive the countdown! The Storm Circles give players more room to hunt down opponents. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Victory Royale!
- Final Fight plays similar to standard Battle Royale, but instead of the Storm circles closing all the way, the Storm stops after the 3rd circle.
- When the circles have finished closing in, the final countdown timer will begin.
- The remaining teams will battle it out until the timer expires.
- The team with the most players remaining at the end of the timer wins!
- In the event of a tie, the two (or more) teams tied for the lead win the match.
