Epic has been kind of tight-lipped about the details of the mode, but finally released some details about the mode in a new blog post today.

According to the official release, the mode starts the player off in the staging area.

Challenge The Horde is a brand new mode that'll have players each creating their own portable horde fort. Players will have unlimited time to do this, but limited resources to work with. Once you've designed the ideal fort, exit the staging area and party with up to three friends. Your forts will be ready for action when your team hits the ground. As you survive waves of zombie enemies, you'll receive more resources to continually improve your fort along with rewards for future use.

The update, titled Horde Bash, adds a slew of new content. The Scavenger Llamas holds four new Heroes, nine weapons, two new Defenders. Complete quests, play Challenge the Horde and more to earn Llamas. In a press release announcing the release of the PvE update, it mentions quality level of the new weapons saying, "the Scavenger weapon set is delicate, but they're all cheap to craft".

Some images of the new weapons can be seen at the end of the announcement trailer above. The title is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The new heroes added in this update includes the Raider Soldier who loves the shotgun for close encounters, the Ammo Harvest Outlander for ammo supply, the Trap Specialist Constructor with damage and durability boost, and the Energy Thief Ninja which leeches energy for melee combat.
