For those who fancy reliving some earlier Epic Games magic, the return of The Getaway Limited Time mode has been followed by a collection of new rewards to unlock.
This effectively means that The High Stakes Challenges featured during Season 5 are now back.
For those who don’t remember or didn’t play Fortnite during Season 5, the High Stakes Challenges were unlocked by playing The Getaway LTM.
This special Limited-Time Mode plays with the usual Battle Royale formula by asking fans to team up, find a safe, and then bring the contents back to a van found on the map.
Here are the rules, as confirmed by Epic Games last year: “Four safes have been loaded into supply drops scattered around the island, each carrying a large jewel.
“You and your crew must locate a safe, pick up the prize inside and get away with the goods while battling enemies. The first four teams to make their way to a van with a jewel and getaway win.”
The good news is that there are new High Stakes Challenges to complete, as well as the return of the older collection.
This means that if you didn’t play during Season 5, you have another chance to unlock some of the old gear, including the Crystal Llama back bling, which now comes in different colours.
Fans only have until March 19 to complete all the new Challenges set by Epic Games, while the old Wild Card outfits are also available to purchase from the item store.
The updated High Stakes Challenge list includes:
- Complete The Getaway challenges (2)
- Win a match of The Getaway (1)
- Win matches of The Getaway (3)
- Win matches of The Getaway (5)
- Use a Grappler in different matches of The Getaway (5)
- Deal damage to Jewel-carrying opponents (200)
- Pick up a Jewel in different matches of The Getaway (3)
These new challenges should be available to all players regardless of it they have a Season 8 Battle Pass or not.
The good news for Battle Pass owners is that they complete these new tasks after finishing their weekly list of challenges.
Week 3 Challenges will remain available to complete until the end of Season 8, meaning it might be worth checking out The Getaway LTM to see if there are any items you fancy unlocking before March 19.
