A new format to the Battle Royale game by ESL

While Fortnite is a Battle Royale game, the tournament series started by ESL has been catching the eyes of many. The games are played in an arena shooter style with game modes like Capture the Flag and Hardpoint with levels designed using Unreal Editor for Fortnite.

Furthermore, the Esports World Cup will also see a new Search & Destroy game mode in the mix. The format was very well received by Fortnite Fans during the DreamHack Dallas. It was hard to imagine an arena shooter tournament in a Battle Royale game. Although, it certainly wouldn’t have been possible with the features like the Unreal Editor.
