Fortnite has given its players a unique approach to battle royales with its building system, but the developers always spice up the game with Limited Time Modes (LTM) and a new concept would take the game to mythical heights.

LTMs have proven to be a haven for players that are interested in experiencing their favorite game with insane changes that completely revamps the Fortnite formula, so bringing Role-Playing elements to the shooter might be a welcomed change for many.

Reddit user Zach-317 suggested incorporating “Fortnite Myth Royale,” a mode that would take classes typically seen in an RPG that would grant players different abilities based on various pickups in the mode.

Epic GamesProposed mode isn’t too far off from previous LTM’s that give players wacky abilities.

The user proposed different items that upon pickup would unlock different class abilities based on the item acquired.

Zach likened the idea to the Infinity Blade’s buff effect on pickup, however the items would be far more attainable in the proposed mode than the vaulted mythical weapon.

The Reddit user refers to the transforming Legendary items as “cloaks.”

Game mode idea: Myth Royale- You can obtain legendary items called “cloaks”, that let you “transform” like the infinity blade. These “cloaks could include – mage (can shoot orbs), Druid (turns into animals), Hunter (gets bow and arrow), or maybe warrior (sword and shield). Tell me your opinions from r/FortNiteBR

Proposed classes upon picking up a cloak include a mage that shoots orbs, a druid that would have animal transforming abilities, a hunter who would have a bow and arrow, and a warrior class who would wield a sword and shield.

Commenters immediately linked the idea to a different battle royale title, Realm Royale, and the similarities are striking. However, with added care to balancing and class abilities along with Fortnite’s signature building elements, the mode could fit in nicely with the archive of insane LTMs currently in the game.

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
