Have something pretty freaking cool you want to show your friends and the rest of the gaming community enjoying Fortnite? The Block features player-created content and folks can vote on their favorites on rotation. According to Epic Games, The Block is a feature that will “improve and evolve over time,” so they’ll need your help to get the ball rolling and report any bugs that pop up! Other than that, creativity is fair game! There’s even a few guidelines they’ve provided the community to get started.
- 25×25 tile area on a flat section of your island. It’s very important that your creations can fit nicely on The Block.
- Try to keep your ‘Memory Used’ less than 50,000. Efficiency is just as important as creativity!
- Chests, floor loot and vehicle spawns will be determined by Epic. No need to include these.
Of course, other than the rules listed above, Epic Games asks that players adhere by their “Creative code of conduct.” Make sure to be on your A-game because the developers will be on the look out for for candidates! As a matter of fact, The Block is available to try out now!
