Fortnite Patch References New Open-World LTM Daybreak

Get ready for a whole new way to play Fortnite, as it looks like Epic Games is closer than ever to revealing a new open-world mode to the third-person shooter. While Fortnite was originally born as a PvE idea, the addition of Battle Royale overtook the original mode and led to this being rebranded as Save the World. Sadly, as Battle Royale has continued to soar, Save the World been left in the dust, with questions over what Epic will do with it next.

Rumours of a new open-world mode are nothing new, which would definitely give some much-needed love to Save the World. You might remember Epic toyed with the idea of a PvE boss fight a few years ago with the Storm King. Now, a new limited-time mode called Daybreak could be just around the corner to capitalise on the success of the Storm King and give us something new to try out. 

 

What is the Fortnite Daybreak LTM?

As spotted by Eurogamer, the latest 16.40 patch references an "open world simulation sandbox". This comes after noted leaker HYPEX shared images of a new map and props that inadvertently came out during the Apple vs. Epic trial. Putting all the pieces together, this looks to be our first real proof that Daybreak is on the way. Similar to the popular Call of Duty Zombies, the aim of the game is to survive waves of hostile NPCs, complete objectives, and then make it to safety. Here, you have to find different parts and fixed a down helicopter before taking off from the island.

This being Fortnite, there's also the typical twist of an encroaching storm circle that makes your arena increasingly small. The description reads, "You wake up alone and unarmed along the coast of an island, with no memory of how you arrived. Quickly search for weapons and ammunition before night falls and creatures begin to roam the hillsides, hunting for prey. Keep an eye out for other stranded people, [as] they may prove to be invaluable allies in your fight to stay alive on the increasingly hostile island". It all sounds pretty standard, but will hopefully give Fortnite fans another reason to play.

 

What else do we know about the Fortnite Daybreak LTM?

It's important to remember Epic is yet to officially confirm Daybreak, however, that hasn't stopped players from getting pumped. If you want to know what the incentive of playing is, HYPEX showed of a new Umbrella that you'll apparently earn for successfully making it out of Daybreak. The Umbrella features some crude caveman drawings running away from dinosaurs, once again confirming Daybreak will be connected to the ongoing Primal Chapter 2 Season 6.

The description of Daybreak also explains how squads will be split up - leading to the added challenge of finding your friends on the new map. It all sounds pretty fun, but how long for? Still, there are questions about what the continued incentive to play would be. Will Daybreak be connected to the Battle Pass and allow players to level up through playing multiple rounds? Could a separate Battle Pass with Daybreak skins also be added to the mix? Finally, we want to know just how limited this LTM will really be. As with all things Fortnite, the leakers got there first.
