Epic Games has revealed it is working on a way for Fortnite players to stage Mini Battle Royales within Creative Mode.
Season 7 of Fortnite brought with it a lot of changes. One of the biggest additions to the Fortnite experience was the introduction of Creative Mode, which provided players with the ability to create their own maps and points of interest. Some people got incredibly creative with it and even saw their creations featured in Battle Royale mode as part of The Block.
What fans of the Creative Mode now want to know is where that particular branch of Fortnite is going next. During a Fortnite Creative AMA on Reddit, Epic was asked whether it would soon introduce simulated storm circles. That way, players can set the parameters themselves and practice strategies for when competitive rounds are coming to an end.
Not only did Epic's answer reveal that this is a feature that is currently being worked on, but it also divulged that there could soon be a customizable Mini Battle Royale Mode in Creative. "Our goal is for you to be able to run 'mini-BR' games on your island, with configurable storms, bus, etc," Epic explained.
However, there are some technical and logistical hurdles Epic needs to clear before it can put this into practice.
"The reason it's tricky is because of how Creative allows for many games to run at the same time on the same server," Epic went on to explain. However, it did sign off by writing that it will figure that out. All of this means that we might soon be able to not only create our own maps, but also gather our friends together and have our very own Battle Royales on that island, complete with Battle Bus and customizable Fortnite storm.
When it comes to timeframes on Fortnite's upcoming features and modes, it is something that is extremely hard to predict. Sometimes we hear something and then it is introduced to the game days later, whereas in other cases it can take months. Take the current Floor Is Lava LTM, for example. Epic hinted at that last year, yet we are only just getting to play it for the first time now. So don't go planning any Mini Battle Royale parties with your Fortnite friends just yet.
