Fortnite 'High Stakes' Event: Limited-Time 'Getaway' Mode, New Outfit and Grappler Tool

Epic Games detailed Fortnite’s newly-announced ‘High Stakes’ event on Sunday, which includes a limited-time mode called Getaway, a new outfit known as Wild Card, and several challenges.

Fortnite’s High Stakes event was unveiled Friday on Twitter, with a promotional image showing the Wild Card outfit: a full-body suit, gloves, a face mask and a briefcase. In a separate tweet, Epic Games said fans would be able to get “first look at High Stakes gameplay” during its live-stream from PAX West in Seattle, Washington over the weekend.

On Sunday evening, the Fortnite developer showed the new Getaway mode, where players will team up with others to find a ‘jewel’ that’s stored in a safe somewhere on the map. Once they pick it up, they must get to a van – and get away – to finish the job, while battling opponents who are tasked with stopping them.

Meanwhile, the Wild Card outfit – which we previously described – has four different face masks, one for each member of the getaway team. The briefcase in question is a back bling, and there’s also a new glider made up of a bank vault, bags of cash, and gold bars and coins.

The upcoming event will also bring a new tool in the ‘Grappler’, which will allow Fortnite players to cover distances faster.
