Fortnite's latest limited time mode, Solo Showdown, doesn't actually change any of the battle royale shooter's rules, unlike all the other temporary modes we've seen.

At the conclusion of the event, Epic Games has outlined what the top players will receive, based on their overall position on the global ladder. Rather, it's an ongoing contest against other self-selected players in what Epic calls "the ultimate test of survival".

Sofia Declaration: The Future of the Western Balkans is European
At the EU-West Balkans Summit, state leaders will hold talks on common interest themes like connectivity, security and migration. The declaration says, in part: "the EU reaffirms its unequivocal support for the European perspective of the Western Balkans".

Fortnite game files include folders for each of the game's modes. Considering Solo Showdown is only available from today, May 17, until May 21, that doesn't give you all that much time to squeeze in 50 matches.

Epic also reveals that there will be some huge prizes for those who do well in Solo Showdown, with prizes to be rewarded after the event has finished.

GOP fights over crucial farm bill as lawmakers demand immigration vote first
During a party-wide meeting Wednesday morning, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy , R-Calif., dressed down the moderate rebels. Meadows said there's not an impending deadline, since the previous bill isn't due to expire until the fall.

The new folder only has a solo variant which might mean that Epic Games could only release a competitive solo first before expanding it to duos and squads.

When it comes to the scoring system, finishing first place within a match will award you 100 points while finishing 20th place within a match will award you 50 points. Players compete to earn a spot on the standings, and those with a high enough score by the end of the competition will be rewarded with a huge prize of V-Bucks.

Skull and Bones delayed until at least April 2019
Alongside The Division 2 and The Crew 2 , another unannounced AAA title will be published during this fiscal year. Two of Ubisoft's major triple-A launches significantly contributed to those numbers.

For the competitor to get 1st place, 50,000 V-Bucks awaits. 2nd to 4th place yields 25,000 of the in-game currency, while 5th to 50th get 13,500. Claiming Victory Royale in a qualifying Solo Showdown match will earn you 100 placement points, second place will get you 94, and the points steadily drop down to a minimum of 25 points for players 76 through 100. The developer also teases that it has a "major announcement about competitive play" sometime next week, although it hasn't hinted at what that could be.
