‘Fortnite’ Is Introducing A Third Gameplay Mode, Creative

The new Unreal Tournament was announced back in 2014, with the studio taking a stance against "free to play" trends by making the game completely free without microtransactions. Set to launch alongside Season 7 tomorrow, Fortnite Creative will enable players to design and build their own games, battle friends in new ways and create nearly anything in a Fortnite sandbox. Load in on your own or with friends and you'll get access to a private island where you can fly around and build with infinite resources using basic materials or prefab structures, limited only by your imagination... and a "memory used" meter.

Season 7 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is also due to start on December 6, but for anyone in the United Kingdom that will presumably also be Friday - unless you're an insomniac super fan. "It's all happening on your own private island where everything you make is saved", writes Epic in a recent blog post. That'd be enough to keep most busy but not Epic; the company also teased a Fortnite world premiere for The Game Awards tomorrow. Epic takes 12%. And if you're using Unreal Engine, Epic will cover the 5% engine royalty for sales on the Epic Games store, out of Epic's 12%. "3 days to Season 7", the official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted. The original goal of Playground was to help players get a feel for Battle Royale. On their announcement page, they also have a bundle of links to YouTubers who have been poking around Fortnite Creative early, giving some tips for the first wave of creators. Software on the Epic Games Store will initially be made available for the PC and Mac, with Android users being catered for later on in 2019.

Opponents believe the advice will reveal Attorney General Geoffrey Cox's misgivings about the Brexit agreement. It means MPs will debate and vote on Tuesday on whether or not to refer the case to the Standards Committee.

Season 6 is drawing to a close and players are wondering when Season 7 is due to begin in Fortnite. We also expect to find out more about season seven itself.

Epic Games, the company behind the wildly successful Fortnite, today revealed it's opening its own digital game storefront. It's truly heartwarming to see the Fortnite community come together to try and get this design brought to life.
