AMD has launched a brand new multiplayer map of Fortnite Creative Islands, the AMD Battle Arena, to “celebrate AMD gaming’s future.”
Developed in partnership with Fortnite Creative Island modder MAKAMAKES, the the AMD Battle Arena offers Fortnite’s 350 million gamers three different game modes: Boxfight, Capture the Flag and Free for All.
The first is a five-round battle in which gamers claim victory by eliminating all other players, while the second, as its name implies, will see players fighting it out to capture the enemy flag and return to their base.
In Free for All, guns spawn across the map randomly and the first player to make 30 eliminations wins.
AMD Battle Arena center can be accessed via code ‘8651-9841-1639,’ which allows access to every matchmaking mode. Individual map keys will be displayed in the hub for gamers to setup private matches.
AMD has also joined hands with Maingear to provide a chance for AMD Battle Arena Fortnite players to win a high-performance Maingear Turbo gaming PC fuelled by an AMD Ryzen 7 processor and a Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card.
For a chance of winning, you need to capture “epic gaming moments” from AMD Battle arena before September 30, and post it on social media.
