It wasn’t long ago that we first heard about a new mode in Fortnite called Party Royale, a mode that is designed to be a peaceful social place to hang out with friends instead of killing each other. In an interveiw with Polygon, Epic described the mode in an interesting way: “Party Royale is a new experimental and evolving space. Leave your weapons and mats behind.” And, now that the mode is officially live, it is exactly that.
From what I gathered, Party Royale is literally just a place to chill out and do things with others. Theres challenges you can do, there's areas to explore, it's really cool! pic.twitter.com/Px6FTo5IIo— I Talk Fortnite (@ITalkFortnite) April 29, 2020

Countless players have confirmed Party Roayale’s existience and, as you can see from the tweets embeded above, it’s quite a bit different from the Fortnite you’ve known so far. There’s a different map, new areas to explore, and it is – quite literally – a place to chill and hangout.

If not, it could end up disappearing just as quickly as it appeared. Stay tuned for updates! Be sure to check out the least on Chapter 2 Season 3:
