playlist is available from Dec. 8 to through Dec. 17, so make sure to grab your
friends and jump into the battle for a limited time.
How does it work?
Just load up Battle Royale and select the 50v50 playlist. You can jump into the
mode solo or with up to three friends. Once the Battle Bus gets flying, you’ll
see your squad on the map and communicate like a normal squad/duo match. You’ll
also see green markers on the map and above the heads of the remaining 50-player
team. The circle closes in. Last team standing wins.
Are there any special rules?

Due to popular demand, the hitching and second-long lags in PVE have been reintroduced. That super great feeling of missing headshots due to the game becoming unresponsive for quarter-second sections of time is back! Epic felt that their customers were making too many accurate shots or wall placements after "the smoothness" patch, and has brought back this unpredictable "feature". They've also added random disconnects from matches, and CTDs that haven't been around for a long time. Also, placing a trap may also place a random wall segment, often right in the path you intended to leave open!
Also, to address the annoying leeches who join matches and do nothing the entire time (but still get rewards at the end), Epic has introduced a feature called "you can't see your teammates on the map anymore". This will keep you from noticing who doesn't move for an entire match, lowering your personal frustration. Also, required objectives will occasionally not show up on the map anymore, making time-constrained matches even MORE exhilarating!
