Fortnite celebrates St. Patrick's Day with its new Time Limited Mode "Going Green." It may not be a major holiday like Halloween or Christmas, but for Fortnite, it started with a rainbow appearing all over the map.

The rainbow starts at one end of the map and stretches all the way to the other side. Tempting as it may be to check if there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, players are unable to reach the ends. Like with a real rainbow, as players go to one end, it simply spins around them. It would have been a nice addition to the game and the TLM if they allowed for a treasure, even at one end.

Players shouldn’t expect too much from the new TLM. For starters, one change appears to be that normal loot has been upgraded to common type. Basically, the items will be green. Treasure maps have their spawn rate increased as well. Green Clover Gear, Firewalker Gear, Lucky Wrap, and Tri-Star Pickaxe are included in the Going Green event. There is no word as to when the Going Green TLM will end.

Aside from the St. Patrick's Day-theme TLM, Fornite will be temporarily featuring the Disco Domination LTM to replace the Team Rumble LTM.

Fortnite also revealed that it will be offering a Configurable Scoreboard for Fortnite Creative. This allows the creation to be scored. New building options have also been added.

Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite offers players three game modes. The first is Fortnite: Save the World, where a maximum of four players can play cooperatively fighting creatures and defending objects. The second is Fortnite Creative, which grants players the ability to create not only battle arenas, but entire worlds. Third is Fortnite Battle Royale, which is a battle royale game that sees 100 players fight it out to see who the last one standing is. It is this third mode that has given Epic Games massive success, drawing in 125 million players in less than a year since its release. Fortnite has been nominated for various awards and won, among others, the Choice Videogame award from the 2018 Teen Choice Awards, Best Ongoing Game during the Game Awards 2018, and Favorite Battle Royale Game at the 2018 Gamer's Choice Awards.
