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.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
