Fortnite's Horde Bash update introduces a new game mode, weapons, and heroes


The update arrives October 5

Epic Games has announced via a blog post the next update for Fortnite's PvE mode. Dubbed the Horde Bash update, it's launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac this Thursday, October 5.

The update will include the brand new "Challenge the Horde" mode along with new heroes, weapons, and even a new in-game event.

Challenge the Horde mode is all about building a portable fort. Players have no time restrictions, but limited resources during the building process. Once your fort is finished the party can exit the staging area. The longer you survive, the more resources and rewards you'll get.

On top of the new mode, an event llama packed with new loot is here. The Scavenger Llama has nine new scavenger weapons that break easily but are cheap to craft, two new defenders, and four new heroes:

  • Raider Solider
  • Ammo Harvester Outlander
  • Trap Specialist Constructor
  • Energy thief Ninja
