Fortnite will soon launch its Creative 2.0 and the details are interesting.
Fortnite is constantly evolving itself, and it will be doing that again when its new creative suite comes out for players to use. The current creative feature is pretty in-depth but Fortnite apparently wants to expand on it, and make it more controllable, while also making it far more accessible.
That’s part of the reason why they’re creating a brand new creative outlet for fans to use. This new version of the creative function will be far more expansive and will allow for new and deeper control over the environment.
That’s at least what one leaker is saying. Details of the new creative option have been leaked by Twitter users InTheShade, and the general gist is that this is going to be a wild departure from what fans are used to.
Fortnite’s creative is getting immersive
Fortnite is apparently overhauling a lot of what you can do. Fortnite News compiled a list of all the new features that were leaked, and some of them are incredible.

If you’re a fan of the creative function on Fortnite, you may find some of these changes to be a bit daunting but they should provide a full new challenge to conquer and a far deeper experience for creators to explore and utilize.
