Fornite has updated its Creative mode for following the v21.40 update.

Fortnite continues to update its Creative mode despite promises of Creative 2.0 supposedly in the works. The game is powered in part due to the Creative aspect of the game and so much of what it provides it offers via the mode. A lot of the better game modes were created in that mode. So it’s a very important aspect of the game.

That doesn’t mean that all the changes are welcomed. Some of the quick notes (a full list of everything that changed is below) that we see include a few bugs that were causing issues. Like emoting causes you to be eliminated from certain Creative game types.

One of the things that some fans won’t like is the sprinting meter being re-added, which negates the ability to sprint as much as you like in certain cases.
