Fortnite’s High Stakes Event Brings Wild Card Skin And More

Epic Games’ upcoming High Stakes event was previously announced during the PAX West livestream and Fortnite is getting a new limited time mode called ‘The Getaway’.

In Getaway, teams will battle over four safes dropped at different locations across the map. The first team that manages to secure the jewel inside a van will win the match. There’ll be three challenges for players to finish throughout the event, and all of them will need to be completed in the brand new ‘The Getaway’ Limited Time Mode. Players will get a prize after finishing each challenge, and will be given the new crowbar upon completion of all three.
