Creative - Mode - Fortnite

Fortnite Creative is a new game mode for Fortnite: Battle Royale where players can control the creation of their own private islands for others to experience. All the features and tweaks players put into the island can be saved for later use. This became available to all players starting December 13th, 2018.

Battle Pass owners had access to the private island for the first week of Battle Pass Season 7. During this early access week Battle Pass owners could invite their friends to play on their island.

The Block

The most exciting and imaginative islands built in Creative will be featured on the “The Block” in the Battle Royale map. Below are a few guidelines:

  • 25x25 tile area on a flat section of your island. It’s very important that your creations can fit nicely on The Block.
  • Originality matters. Create something new, don’t copy other people’s ideas.
  • Try to keep your ‘Memory Used’ less than 50,000. Efficiency is just as important as creativity!
  • There’s no height requirement, but please try to scale your creations to be a similar to other POIs in the Battle Royale map.
  • You can use any component available.
  • Chests, floor loot and vehicle spawns will be determined by Epic. No need to include these.
