A new Fortnite Creative game mode titled “Liferun” is being debuted at PAX South, and will see Fortnite streamers DrLupo, Lachlan, and ONE_shot_GURL competing against each other – with a life-saving twist.

Pretty soon, Fortnite players will have a new game mode to get their hands on and it’s an interesting twist on the current format of the game.

Instead of coming away with the most eliminations, players will instead have to focus on saving the most lives as possible.

Epic GamesLiferun is about saving, not killing.

This mode is coming to Fortnite as part of a partnership with the International Red Cross. Players will race across the map in the ATK golf carts to save lives instead of taking them.

It’s definitely an interesting spin on the game that we’re excited to see play out in action later this month.

At PAX South, taking place Jan 17-19, the new Liferun mode is being debuted and will feature DrLupo, Lachlan, and ONE_shot_GURL. For those wanting to tune in, they’ll be able to do so on Sunday, Jan 19 at 11 am EST / 2 PM PST / 4 PM BST.

What we don’t know is exactly how the game mode will work. Other than the premise, there will have to be a lot of speculation until we officially see it all play out.

The mode comes from Team Evolve, the creators of the Zone Wars playlist as well as the Creative Showdown. With that kind of track record, we’re sure to get something good out of this.

It’s unclear how long the mode will remain in the game once it enters the LTM rotation, but we expect it to stick around for a few weeks at least.

With the end of the first season of Chapter 2 delayed until February, something will have to fill the void of emptiness, and it’s looking like this will be one of the ways the developers plan on doing so.

We’ll know what Epic have in store for the mode as we approach the release date later in the month.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
