Epic Games announced today the “Horde Bash Update” for Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE mode on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Available on 5th October, the mode delivers an all new “Challenge the Horde” gameplay mode, a new in-game event, new heroes, weapons, questions, and more!
There’s a trailer and more info to be found below.
Challenge The Horde Mode
It all starts in a staging area. You’ll have unlimited time, but limited resources to build a portable horde fort. Once you’ve designed the perfect fort, exit the staging area and party with up to three friends. Your forts will be ready for action when your team hits the ground. As you survive, you’ll receive more resources and more rewards to Challenge The Horde.
With the new update comes a new event llama. The Scavenger Llamas holds four new Heroes, nine weapons, two new Defenders. Earn the Scavenger currency by completing quests and playing the new Challenge The Horde mode. The Scavenger weapon set is delicate, but they’re all cheap to craft.
Introducing Scavenger Heroes with new, never-before-seen perks.
Raider Soldier – Loves the shotgun and close encounters.
Ammo Harvest Outlander – If you need ammo, this is your Hero.
Trap Specialist Constructor – Get a damage boost & durability boost.
Energy Thief Ninja – Generates and leeches energy from melee combat.
Along with modes, weapons, defenders and Heroes … the update includes over 25 new progressions quests with rewards that range from Scavenger tickets to Legendary items!
