“Welcome to Party Royale! All chill, no sweat. Leave your weapons and mats behind and hang out with friends, play games, perfect your skydive, and more. The party’s just getting started,” the announcement for the game reads provided. Even more, popular influencers were also contacted on the matter to advertise the new addition.

However, unlike previously undisclosed announcement, it looks the latest update is the first not requiring social media personalities to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). “Party Royale. All chill, no sweat,” the subtitle for the new mode reads in the email.
The official debut of the mode is suggested to go live this coming Friday according to the email, but the port of entry for Party Royale shows to already be open.
