Fortnite adds Capture the Flag-style mode Getaway

Jewel be playing it today!

There's a new mode in Fortnite's 5.40 patch, which has just rolled out to the game's servers. It's called Getaway, and it's a little Capture the Flag-like.

You need to capture llama-shaped jewels found in supply drop safes then deposit them at flying getaway vans. Jewels will slow you down while carrying them, and vans will require building to reach. Securing a jewel will net you victory.

It won't be easy - other tweaks include supply drops with long-range weapons to help stop jewel-carriers from afar, while rifts and launchpads have been disabled to stop sneaky jewel deposits.

Patch 5.40 also adds in the previously-detailed Grappler item, which will have 15 charges. You use it to attach and pull yourself towards any other nearby object, and can chain shots together.

New rewards will drop from challenges associated with the mode. And there are, of course, new skins to spend your money on. Beardy strokey man here is my favourite.
