The in-game message of the day has updated for the March 25th Item Shop reset. Included was an announcement of a new LTM, The Floor Is Lava!
Epic Games has teased a promotional image and description for the new The Floor Is Lava Limited Time Mode which will be coming soon to Fortnite.
As the title implies and the image shows, the entire ground-level of the Fortnite Battle Royale map has turned into lava. The goal of the LTM is to stay off of the ground- and of course, be the last team standing.
The Floor Is Lava LTM
Get to high ground or build above the lava that’s overtaking the island.
It’s not yet known if this was a submission for the Fortnite Creative LTM Contest, which was announced on Thursday, March 21st. It’s likely this was an original creation by Epic Games due to the little amount of time between the announcement and the complexities involved.
Epic Games appears to have teased The Floor Is Lava in February of 2018 in the Fortnite Battle Royale State of Development v4 blog post.
From there, we want to make internal improvements so we can introduce more involved LTMs (e.g. “floor is lava”).
A release date for The Floor Is Lava has not been announced at the time of writing. It is expected to release in the v8.20 update next week. What are your thoughts on an LTM based which revolves around staying off the ground, as The Floor Is Lava implies?
