A special novelty Fortnite The game mode was leaked ahead of its expected announcement next week, and it features a philanthropic theme. His name is “Liferun” and he seems to have a very nice message to go with him.
ShiinaBR, a leaker in the Fortnite community, has announced that the move will be announced to PAX South, which begins Jan. 17. According to ShiinaBR, players will take on the role of a Red Cross worker who “races to save the lives of characters in four different missions.” Screenshots show the Red Cross worker snowboarding and running.
“Liferun” seems like a pun on the creative “Deathrun” fashions that have become popular over the past year, and partnering with the Red Cross seems like as good an idea as any.
There’s a good chance this event will be a limited-time mode. And with the Red Cross partnership, don’t be surprised if it includes cosmetics to go with it. Hopefully some, if not all, of the proceeds from the purchase will also go to the organization itself.
Hope we learn more about Liferun next weekend at PAX South.
