The latest content update for Fortnite — the 9.01 patch — is out today, and with it comes the introduction of a brand new, John Wick-themed limited-time mode, as well as the addition of a new weapon and some minor fixes throughout the game.
Titled Wick's Bounty, the newest limited-time mode will drop players into a game with gold tokens similar to that of the assassins in the movie. Eliminating an enemy player pays out all of the tokens that they were carrying, and the first squad to reach a certain threshold wins.
You can check out the full list of changes to the Battle Royale portion of Fortnite below, and jump into a game now to check out the changes:
LIMITED TIME MODE: WICK'S BOUNTY
- Limited respawning: Each player has three lives.
- The more tokens a player is carrying, the more visible on the map they will be when moving or shooting.
