Fortnite, the battle royale game that is available for Windows, Android, and consoles, has grown in popularity since it was first launched in 2017. The game has updated its core experience, the map and the storyline with the arrival of every new season, making it one of the most popular mobile games despite the game being removed from both iOS and Android app stores after developer Epic Games clashed with Apple and Google over in-app purchases. However, a new leak suggests that the game could receive a big update that could fundamentally change how the game works - with a new No Build game mode.

Unlike popular games that fall under the same battle royale category like Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) or Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite sets itself apart thanks to one useful feature - building. From walls, stairs (or ramps) and even roofs, gamers can quickly build structures in the game, to keep themselves safe from other players and gain the upper hand in each match. However, according to a leaker, it looks like Epic Games could be working on a No Build Game mode that could offer the same action-packed gameplay, minus the creativity of the building mode.

Spotted by VGR, a dataminer called GMatrixGames has shared an image for a Limited Time new game mode which suggests that the developer is currently working on the mode. If such a No Build game mode were to make its way to the game in the future, it could put experienced players (who are very quick at building structures) on equal footing with more casual gamers who might appreciate the No Build Mode. Unfortunately, at this point, there is very little information about the No Build Mode.

The report also points out that even if Epic were to bring such a mode to Fortnite, it would most likely remain a limited-time game mode. This means that gamers will be able to enjoy the mode (if it is launched) as long as it is one of the game modes offered by Epic. However, Epic has, in the past, turned game modes from limited-time game modes to permanent modes -- for example Team Rumble, which is now a regular fixture in the game. At the moment, we do not know if or when Fortnite will actually add this rumoured feature to the game, but gamers should stay tuned in the coming weeks to learn more about the upcoming season that is expected to land in December.
