Today Epic Games is launching a new mode on Fortnite, that lets players design, construct, and just hang out in their own environments, without the threat of being attacked. So basically, they’re edging into Minecraft territory.
The new option is called Fortnite Creative, and it’s set to be available from the main menu alongside the current modes, Save the World and Battle Royale.
In Creative mode, players choose from a selection of island shapes and are granted access to their own private landscape where they can roam freely.
You can go for an architectural flex and populate the land with an arrangement of pre-made buildings and scenic objects, but you can also create your own mini-games like deathmatch shoot-outs and obstacle courses, to play with friends.
If you buy the Season 7 Battle Pass you get early access to your private island playground, so let the next stage of the ever-growing Fortnite empire begin.
