Fortnite Creative Lets Players Design Games

Players who get early access through a Battle Pass purchase will still be able to invite their friends into Creative sessions. To top it off all engines are indeed welcome, so it's not like developers will be forced to use the Unreal Engine to create and list games on the marketplace. In other words, the "Epic Games Store Tax" on developers is just 12 per cent. After being leaked online by a YouTuber, Epic Games has officially unveiled Fortnite Creative, a sandbox mode allowing players to build their own maps and match types.

Fortnite Creative launches on December 6 as part of Season 7 for Battle Pass owners (general availability happens a week later on December 13).

The first tease for Fortnite Season 7 was released on Twitter at 3pm BST on Monday, December 3, followed by a second teaser at roughly 4pm on Tuesday. It may be added to the game alongside the Fortnite Season 7 update. It will open up in early 2019 with a set of curated games that run on PC and Mac, with it opening up to Android and other open platforms later on in the year. A cut of revenue and the UE 4 licensing fees being waived are sure to be good incentives and for players, you have things like a 14-day no-questions-asked refund policy being enacted.

And in the case of both posters, we can assume that the figures who are showing will be some form of skin for the games upcoming Season 7 Battle Pass. "Fortnite Creative is new and exciting, but not final", Epic wrote in todays announcement. "It's all happening on your own private island where everything you make is saved", writes Epic in a recent blog post.

It is nearly certain that Epic's store won't have games from Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Blizzard, and other game developers or publishers that operate their own Store.

Details are still fairly slim, but we'll find out more very soon.

As Eurogamer reports, Creative mode will enable Fortnite players to arrange a number of pre-constructed assets onto the map, to form obstacle courses, forts, out-of-town shopping villages, whatever takes your fancy (and works best with your imagination).
