New Mode Starts On December 13 For Everyone
Starting December 13th, access to Fortnite’s Creative Mode will be extended to everyone so all users can try their hand at this mode. The feature has been available only to the ones who purchased Season 7 Battle Pass.
Build Your Own Islands
Each player will have 4 islands on which to build their dream creation. These islands will be a blank slate and building progress will be saved so you won’t need to worry about the time limit.
Let Your Imagination Run Wild
Creative gives you access to a variety of tools via the phone which allow you to build and manipulate structures and items. You can even set your own rules on how your creation should be played!
Recommended Gameplay On Creative
Build Practice With Infinite Building Materials
Creative is the ideal place to practice for building battles as you can have infinite building materials so you won’t need to waste time gathering them.
Practice Build Battles
Create an ideal practice situation by using prefabricated buildings and building your way out of situations you’ve had trouble getting out of in the Battle Royale game modes.
Play With Special Prefabs
Some unique structures like stadiums have been added to prefabs so you can immediately enjoy them without needing to make them from the ground up.
Get Featured On The Block
Epic will be on the lookout for exceptional player creations shared via social media with the hashtag #FortniteBlockParty to feature on The Block!
A New 5th Island Features The Block
Aside from the original 4 islands each player receives to build on, a 5th island will be provided featuring The Block so that players can make sure their creations can fit the space!
Each player will get 4 blank islands on which to build on accessible via a Golden Rift from the Creative hub.
Featured Islands can be accessed via special Rifts. These will allow you to access created islands currently featured and play them according to the rules set by the creator.
Island Codes System
The Island Codes system will allow you to access player-created islands that have been shared to the system. To load these, use the “Enter Code” option at the Featured Rift.
What Can You Do In Your Islands?
“My Island” Menu
The “My Island” Menu offers a variety of options that will allow you to customize the island and set the rules for how a game on your island will be played.
Starting Health Can Be Invincible
This will prevent players from getting damaged while they are on your island.
Building Damage in Game
Disable this option so the buildings you’ve placed will be invincible, but will not apply to player-built structures. Enable this option to allow buildings to be destroyed normally.
Disabling this will allow you to move props through each other but not under terrain. This will make arranging elements easier when creating your island.
Use Fly For Movement
Double-tapping Jump even while using your Glider will allow you to use the Fly option. This will allow you to quickly move through the map and even place objects in midair!
Prefabs – Ready-Made Structures
If you don’t fancy building from scratch, use Prefabs to customize your island. These range from classic Battle Royale structures to special challenge structures ready to use!
The Obstacle Course prefab set includes Floors, Walls, Roofs, Stairs and Parts. This will allow you to easily create your own Obstacle Course using structures and props!
The items included here will allow you to strategically place objects that cannot be destroyed by weapons in the game.
Devices are a mix of items that can be interacted with. These include the classic Battle Royale Trap items to timers, scoreboards, etc.
This device will spawn a pre-set item one at a time during games on the island where it’s located.
Player Checkpoint Plate
Behaves similar to a save point, players that run across this device will change their spawn point to its location when they die during a game.
Team Play Features
All On One Team When Entering A Server
Similar to Playgrounds, all players will be on the same team when they initially join the server for the island.
Jump Into An Active Session In Team 1
Players who join a session that’s currently in progress will be on Team 1 by default.
Team Spawns Spread Evenly Across Spawn Points
Whenever possible, players on the same team will spawn across different team spawn points for even distribution.
Team Identifiers Enabled
Players on the same team will now be able to see team identifiers to easily tell apart players on the opposite team.
