After a disheartening delay, Fortnite Battle Royale’s 50v50 mode is finally back in action.

The second version of the 50v50 mode was originally intended to launch in April, but was delayed due to service issues. The time has come for the mode to make its grand return, however, as developer Epic announced on Twitter that 50v50 v2 is live for the game right now.

50v50 was first playable in the game for a few weeks last December, but it has been on hiatus ever since. The mode benches the game’s conventional every-player-for-themselves format by splitting the 100-player lobby into two competing teams, but during its time off, it has undergone a few changes. The main change is that the mode now features two buses- instead of one- traveling in opposite directions along the same path, more effectively dividing the two teams at the start.

This will be the first time Fortnite Battle Royale has hosted two simultaneous limited-time modes, with the game’s Avengers: Infinity War mash-up still going on. The Infinity War event allows one lucky player to take on the role of Thanos and wreak havoc on the map, but the character was so powerful that he needed a number of reworks.
