Epic Games has teased that "a new way to grab the Victory Royale is coming" to Fortnite.

Whilst the announcement is pretty taciturn, the developer posed a single question - "will you rise through the ranks?" - and shared a 20-second teaser that looks to be taking us through the icons that will presumably be associated with each rank. 

Perhaps it's no surprise, then, that the community thinks a Fortnite Ranked mode is finally on the way – check out the announcement for yourself in the tweet below:

The news has been met with thousands of responses from Fortnite fans, most of whom have expressed their delight at the announcement.

"Oh, this could be a BIG update," said one, whilst another just exclaimed: "IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!!"

Don't forget, Doctor Who may be on the way to Fortnite, complete with "two skins, two Pickaxes, one Glider, and one Emote" in the Item Shop.

ICYMI, Fortnite Creative 2.0 has added the Unreal Editor for Fortnite. This public beta allows players to make greater changes in Fortnite Creative mode by editing with a new version of the Unreal Engine toolkit, as part of Fortnite's transition to the Unreal 5 engine.
