If you use Fortnite as a way to socialize and relax with friends, Epic Games is working on what could be the perfect palate cleanser after a couple of battle royale rounds. Based on evidence found by Fornite's data mining community, the studio plans to add a new non-competitive mode that will allow you to hang out with your friends without worrying about winning.

Much of the credit for the discovery goes to Lucas7yoshi, one of Fortnite's more prolific data miners. Looking through the game's code, they found an image of a a new map called Papaya (above) linked to an upcoming limited-time gameplay mode called Party Royale. Additional details suggest the mode won't involve any shooting and that you may be able to play minigames with other players.
