Fortnite Battle Royale players will get to take part in the new High Stakes event which kicks off next week.
The official Fortnite Twitter account today revealed the Fortnite High Stakes event as well as the new Getaway LTM.
The Fortnite High Stakes event will bring with it the Wild Card outfit as well as the High Stakes challenges.
The Fortnite Twitter account posted: “Suit up… the High Stakes event begins next week and with it comes the new Getaway LTM, Wild Card outfit, and High Stakes Challenges!“
They also teased that the first gameplay for the Fortnite High Stakes event will be streamed via Twitch from PAX.
The Fortnite Twitter posted: “Get a first look at High Stakes gameplay and more during our PAX stream all weekend long http://www.twitch.tv/fortnite starting at 6PM PT”.
While the Fortnite Battle Royale Leaks Twitter account said the Fortnite High Stakes event should launch after the release of Fortnite update 5.40 on Tuesday.
The Twitch stream showcasing the Fortnite High Stakes gameplay will start at 9am eastern time today and 2am BST on Saturday September 1.
It remains to be seen whether the Fortnite High Stakes event will be linked to the ongoing Fortnite cube.
The Fortnite cube appeared on the Battle Royale map last Friday and has since been moving a step every one hour and 43 minutes.
At the time of writing the Fortnite cube can be found on square D8 in the Battle Royale map.
On Wednesday the Fortnite cube left a mysterious purple rune burnt into the ground after moving.
It’s expected to do this six more times before finally activating.
Once it activates the Fortnite cube is expected to bring about major map changes, with one of those the addition of the rumoured Crazy Castle point of interest.
