Fortnite Creative Mode Gets A New Island, More Tools, Bug Fixes, And More

Fortnite Creative Mode

Players have been having a ton of fun with the Creative Mode that was recently added to Fortnite. This gives everyone the ability to create whatever type of course they’d like, as well as have a change to have it featured on The Block, which is on the big stage of Battle Royale.

That said, the latest update for Fortnite has brought on many changes for Creative Mode, including the addition of new goodies. A fresh island, dubbed the Frosty Fortress, has been added. In addition to this, the new Farmstead themed Prefabs will help players build their dream home away from the chaos.

Plenty of new gameplay options have also been added to make Creative Mode even more expansive in Fortnite. Whether you’re looking to construct a deathrun of your own, or maybe even recreate something else entirely, Epic Games is making it easier than ever to do so with new tools, devices, bug fixes, and so much more.

Fortnite is currently available on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, Android, and iOS devices. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
