Epic Games unveiled its High Stakes event for Fortnite Battle Royale during PAX West.

The event will include a new limited-time mode, new challenges, a new skin, and more. The new limited-time mode is called “Getaway” and tasks players with locating safes littered around the map, retrieving the jewel that is inside, and reaching a van to extract with it. The first four teams to secure a jewel and escape win.

There will be a number of challenges available during the event, including playing 10 Getaway matches, dealing 500 damage to players who are carrying the jewel, and picking up the jewel in five different matches. Players who complete these challenges will earn themselves 5,000 XP, a new spray, a new trail, and the crowbar pickaxe.

Finally, this new event will see the debut of the Grappler, a new grappling hook item that lets players quickly get out of sticky situations or close the gap on their opponent.

Epic Games recently announced that it will be changing the storm in the late-game so that it deals damage to player structures.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
