Battle royale + casino = casino royale?
Details about High Stakes are light for the time being, but Epic noted the event will include the new Wild Card outfit (pictured below), a new limited-time mode called Getaway, and its own challenges. Eager Fortnite fans won’t have to wait long for more info, however. Epic will offer the first look at gameplay and more tonight at 6 p.m. PDT during a PAX West stream that will be broadcast on Fortnite’s Twitch channel.
The name High Stakes seems to be hinting at a casino/gambling theme for the event. This seems especially likely given that Epic’s announcement tweet also ended with the heart, club, diamond, and spade playing card emoji. Meanwhile, the Getaway mode and mask, gloves, and handcuffed briefcase in the image could potentially be a tease for some sort of casino heist content.
While Fortnite players wait for the full High Stakes reveal, they continue trying to solve the mystery of the giant purple cube, which now has a low-gravity dome around it.
