Fortnite Teases a Heist-themed LTM and Slick Crime Skin to Go Along With It

Get in the van!

Fortnite is at PAX West this weekend and Epic Games is teasing some new high-stakes challenges, a heist-themed limited-time mode, and a new skin to go with it. All will be revealed in the official Fortnite PAX Stream scheduled for 6pm PT/9pm ET tonight on Twitch.

The new LTM is called Getaway, and the corresponding Wild Card skin suggests that this will be a heist-themed event. The skin even has a Payday 2 look to it, though it trades in clowns for a card-themed aesthetic. You can see a teaser for the skin in the official tweet below.

The new mystery in Fortnite for the past week has been a mysterious purple cube, which so far doesn't appear to contain anything. With the new LTM teased, we'll all probably be focused on trying to earn the Wild Card skin, which admittedly looks sweet.
