Fortnite's PUBG-style Battle Royale mode will launch next week

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

The best part? It's free.

Fortnite will be releasing a new Battle Royale mode à la PUBG on September 26 for free.

The new mode will pit 100 players against each other and developer Epic has been keen to stress that the game will have microtransactions but these won’t include any items that give a competitive advantage. Purchasables will be restricted to cosmetic items and external content. A squads mode will also be included, allowing you to face off with friends.
