The mode contains 50% extra building resources, only rare or better weapons, and no mobility-focused items outside of the new grappler. It'll be interesting to see how many Fortnite players will like that.

The Getaway LTM is an entirely new experience for Fortnite, being part of a larger event that Epic is calling High Stakes.

High Stakes also adds one new outfit and four new masks inspired by the classic masked heist look. So, while it appears that you'll only need to capture one jewel in order to win, it doesn't sound like these matches are going to end quickly. Epic Games has made a decision to get in on the action with a new High Stakes event launched today and introducing a new game mode, cosmetic items and in-game utility to Fortnite with a heist-inspired aesthetic. Getaways will be completed by reaching a van located on the map. That brings the total up to $25 if you buy the 2,500 V-Bucks bundle with 300 free V-Bucks. When its plunger hits something, it pulls the shooter in that direction.

You'll find the epic rarity Grappler in Vending Machines, as floor loot, and in Treasure Chests, Supply Drops, and Supply Llamas, and its use is limited to 15 charges. "Some items have been removed or modified to better reflect their effectiveness", read the patch notes.

The report says the student was told by Yale professor Jed Rubenfeld that Judge Kavanaugh "hires women with a certain look". Dean Heather Gerken called him a "long-time friend" and a "mentor" to students.


In a follow-up tweet, Epic Games added: "This also means that Challenge unlocks will be pushed back a day from Thursday 9/6 to Friday 9/7".

Fortnite's 5.40 patch has just started rolling out to servers, and it marks the start of the High Stakes event.

Simply play ten matches of the new mode as soon as it goes live and get a neat XP boots, what's not to love?
