Fortnite have announced a new mode dropping tomorrow called “Reload” and have released the above trailer showcasing the mode as well as many popular Fortnite content creators.

What is the Reload mode exactly? While full details haven’t been shared yet it seems to be a game mode that returns to the more classic gameplay of Fortnite’s early days with a smaller map consisting of familiar locales. You can get a small taste of the new map and returning locales in the post below

Fortnite as a game has changed quite a bit since it started back in 2017 and this mode seems to be a solution for lapsed fans who miss the classic set-up. Fortnite Reload launches tomorrow June 22nd, 2024 after 2pm ET, we’ll keep you posted on any new details that Fortnite may announce for the mode.

UPDATE: We now have the full details on this new mode, and you can read the complete breakdown below.

New Map. New Mode. Welcome to Fortnite Reload, a new action-packed mode for Battle Royale and Zero Build with classic weapons, classic locations, and classic vibes for you and your squad launching Saturday, June 22, shortly after the 2 PM ET concert!

Taking place on a tighter map, featuring familiar locations like Tilted Towers and Retail Row, Fortnite Reload is a 40-player Squads experience where if eliminated, you can reboot… so long as one member of your four-person team remains! The Storm moves faster in Fortnite Reload and a full team wipe means Game Over. Check out the trailer for Fortnite Reload here.


When eliminated, you can opt to start your reboot timer instead of waiting for a revive.

Reboot timers begin at 30 seconds and scale up to 40 seconds later in the match. Remaining teammates can reduce timers by downing or eliminating an opponent, or by wiping an opposing squad.

At the end of the timer, you’ll reboot!

Towards the end of the match, reboots will stop, meaning eliminated teammates can no longer return.


Fortnite Reload has intro Quests rewarding 20,000 XP each. Complete three to unlock the Digital Dogfight Contrail, six for the Pool Cubes Wrap, and nine to get the NaNa Bath Back Bling! If you bag a Victory Royale, you’ll snag The Rezzbrella Glider!
