Epic Games announced that Fortnite is getting a major new mode in Season 7. Dubbed Fortnite Creative, the mode lets players create their own custom maps using creation tools. Creative mode will be available for those with the Battle Pass starting December 6. After the early access period, all users will be able to dabble with the new sandbox mode December 13.
Epic asked some of the most popular Fortnite content creators to take the mode for a spin before it became available. So there’s plenty of footage to check out if you’re interested in getting a sneak peek before Season 7 starts.
Fortnite Creative works similarly to Minecraft‘s Creative mode and other sandbox toolkits. When you enter Creative, you’re transported to a small island filled with rifts that can send you to the maps you’ve made. The island will also serve as a hub to show off popular community creations. Once inside an open layout, you can do what you please. You can design buildings from the ground up or drop already assembled infrastructure onto the map.
