Epic unveils new Fortnite Creative mode focused on building

Epic Games has revealed Fortnite Creative. You can even adjust gravity, how much damage the pick axe does, whether or not players drop loot when they die, and toggle things like infinite ammo and resources.

Creative Mode brings Fortnite closer to Minecraft in that players will be able to run their own server with their own rules.

It's great to see that Epic Games is supporting Fortnite to this degree. Thanks to him, we have a pretty good idea of how Creative will work once it goes live. Any weapon or consumable can be spawned and up to 16 players can enter your island. Each player will get four "islands" on which to create. Once your chosen island has loaded, your character can freely levitate and fly around to facilitate the building process. Create a map layout you like, and then select how it will be played from a list of dozens of unique options. The Creative mode will arrive Thursday for Battle Pass owners, who will get early access to their private islands and can invite friends. "Fortnite Creative is new and exciting, but not final", the official Fornite blog post reads.


Season 7 of Fortnite is set to launch tomorrow and Epic has detailed the release date and time for the start of downtime. This won't be the first project that Epic Games has pivoted away from this year though, the studio also shut down Paragon back in April in order to double down its focus on Fortnite.

Fortnite is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Teases for Season 7 began earlier this week with winter themed hints.
