A new limited-time mode is coming to Fortnite, according to some leaks. A seventeen-year-old self-proclaimed data miner and "Fortnite leaker" claims to have found codes that hint at a new game mode that will be available for a limited time.
The game mode can be played in a single-player mode, duo, three-player mode, or squads. Each player will have five lives each, and every time a player respawns, the rarity of their loot increases. Additionally, players will benefit from a life-drain of sorts in which they can earn health every time they kill an enemy player. Supply Drops also give players more health in this game mode.
Although no official release date has been, Fortnite developers are still working on Patch version 15.40. According to the data miner, Epic Games was testing the update sometime on Feb. 9, 2021 and was going to release it "within the upcoming week(s)" (a statement that was proven to be true).
While Fortnite players can currently enjoy playing the "Air Royale" game mode, it is unknown when exactly "Comeback" will be live on servers or what game mode it might even replace. For the time being, players also have teasers of the Season 5 finale to look forward to as well as a virtual film festival hosted by Fortnite.
