Epic Games is working to introduce a new Party Royale LTM to Fortnite which will be the first non-combat game mode in Fortnite. This mode will essentially focus on chilling and having a good time with your friends.
In an update that was recently sent out to select members of the Fortnite media, it was revealed that Party Royale is a new experimental and evolving space that will allow fans to leave their weapons and mats behind. The update further stated that they are actually planning to run some tests on Friday at 9 PM EST, which is subject to change. However, the developers have urged the community to feel free and check it out.
And while there aren't enough details, it is learnt that the new mode will be based around chilling and having fun with friends, where building and the use of weapons will be reportedly unavailable. It is also clear that you will be able to try out the first-ever Party Royale this coming Friday at 9 PM EST unless there is a delay.
Fortunately, for the fans, data miners have been actively working to get more details on the new mode. For instance, one of the leaks suggests that the Party Royale won’t be taking place on the standard map. Here’s what the Party Royale map looks like:

The map features a number of icons which are quite smaller as compared to the standard map. This is indicative of the different mini-games like races or glider courses. Check out some more pictures of the island:
