Fortnite's Creative platform is going to become so much more
There has been a lot of talk in recent months about Epic Game’s next big update to Fortnite‘s Creative map creator. Players have dubbed the update that plans to change everything about Fortnite creative “Creative 2.0.” Now, thanks to data miners, fans have a better idea of some of the functions that will be available to creators.
According to Twitter user InTheShade, players will have complete creative control over their island in Fortnite‘s Creative mode when this update releases. They list various features in an extensive Twitter thread that goes through different code found in the game’s files. According to this user, the new Creative mode will work using a new scripting language in Fortnite called Verse.
Some of the more impressive features listed in the thread include the ability to create models, giving NPCs a new level of complexity, and a variety of audio/visual tools. Another Twitter user, HYPEX, describes a “Verse NPC,” a scripted AI that the creator can fully customize. Whether moving around the map or emoting, this will add a new level of depth to these maps.
According to the data miner, they barely scratched the surface of what this game will let Creative players do in terms of creating new games and maps to play on. In some ways, it seems that the new Creative platform inside Fortnite will be similar to games like Roblox, where the best part about the game is that it hosts so many interesting experiences.
There’s no set release date, but leakers pointed to later this summer or next season. While players wait, there are still plenty of Creative maps that players can use to earn battle pass experience.
