Fortnite Takes On Red Dead Redemption With Upcoming Game Mode

Fortnite‘s fanbase has only gotten bigger and bigger since the game first launched last year, but the release of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has had fans choosing the cowboy lifestyle over a Victory Royale.

Although Fortnite is still pulling in insane numbers of players per month (around the 8 million mark now), Red Dead Redemption 2 is definitely capturing a lot of hearts right now, and it seems the team behind Fortnite has taken note.

According to the dataminers at @FNBRLeaks on Twitter, Epic is planning to release some wild wild West-themed goodies into its game.

The tweet reads: “[LEAK] The “Wild West” LTM Limited Weapon Info:

“- This mode has no automatic weapons, rocket launchers or traps.

“- Check supply drops for slurp juice. Regular shields pots have been removed from this mode.

“- Dynamite Is the only explosive found in Wild West.”

The upcoming Limited Time Mode, known as the Wild West LTM, will have you battle against friends and foes using only set weapons. They include revolvers, rifles, shotguns and – excitingly – dynamite.

Whether or not the LTM will actually draw players in or not is a different story, as lots of people seem to be favouring the adventures of Arthur Morgan over anything else.
