Battlefield 5 Battle Royale Mode Rumored Ahead of EA Play Reveal

PUBG: 9 Features It Needs To Compete With Fortnite

Yet, having seen "Fortnite" developer Epic Games hit gold after spinning off "Fortnite: Battle Royale" as a standalone free download, could EA greenlight a separate "Battlefield: Battle Royale" release, taking on the might of "PUBG" and "Fortnite" even more directly? Fortnite is already kicking it with their popularity but it skyrocketed when one day, famed YouTubers Ninja, Drake, JuJu Smith and Travis Scott played together.

The latest patch, v3.5, brings along a returning limited time game mode, new weapons, and a new questline for Save The World, amongst other gameplay improvements and bug fixes.

Players can also earn double the XP from Thursday, April 19 until Sunday, April 22.

Fornite Battle Royale 50v50 Mode is available now, with Double XP running this weekend.

Fortnite is out now for PC, PS4, Xbox One and iOS.

New missile attack reported in Syria
Earlier this month, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on Syria's T4 air base, also in Homs. Russia , meanwhile, is mustering an army of internet trolls to shift blame for the chemical weapons attack.

There are two Battle Buses filled with 50 players each, so choose your landing zone wisely.

As expected, a new content update for Fortnite version 3.5 went live in the wee hours of the morning. The 20 Battle Pass stars should really help out players who are in the home stretch for finishing out their Battle Pass. It's a quick-fire rated gun with medium ammo, found in both Rare and Epic rarities. The shrinking storm circle is visible on the map right from the beginning.

Players will have 10 minutes to scour the map for loot.

Fortnite: Battle Royale players can find the Light Machine Gun as part of the Floor Loot, Treasure Chests, and can be purchased from Vending Machines.

EA Dice implementation of a battle-royale mode in its "Battlefield" series, will seem quite interesting where two sides - or teams - of online players have been seen to battle it out with each other to complete objectives. Crossing this line will pretty much guarantee you'll be seeing enemy forces. The Minigun is a bit controversial because of its long startup time, so I wouldn't be surprised if it gets vaulted at some point with this becoming the weapon of choice for assaulting bases and large crowds.
