The new mode will allow players to build their own island with almost unlimited resources of tiles, blocks, pre-fabricated structures and gadgets such as scoreboards and timers. You will also be able to set special rulesets for mini-games ranging from simple deathmatches on maps of your own creation, or complex, Rube Goldberg-esque contraptions.
Once built, you can then save your creations and invite your friends to play on your personal server. Epic will also be provided developer-made builds and will highlight particularly creative constructions from the community.
What is the Fortnite story so far?
Despite Fortnite’s simplicity in its core mechanics –drop onto an island, find weapons, survive until the end– Epic have built an intriguing brand of environmental and even real-world narrative of colliding parallel worlds into its game.
Back in July a rocket launched across its map, creating a giant crack in the sky. Rifts then started appearing around Fortnite’s map, changing locations significantly as the game’s world and the real world collided. A sign for Durr Burger in Fortnite, sucked out of the game, appeared in the real-world California desert.
