After a leak courtesy of an early video on YouTube, Epic Games has officially confirmed Fortnite's Creative Mode.

"As a developer ourselves, we have always wanted a platform with great economics that connects us directly with our players", said Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney.

Launching the new mode will set players up with their own island where games can be designed, race tracks can be crafted, and battles against your friends can be customized to your liking. It will be available to premium players Thursday and everyone on December 13.

Right now, Fortnite is the most popular game in the world, so it makes flawless sense to keep pushing it. Similar to Battle Royal, Epic says it's committed to updating the feature and making it "bigger and better over time".


Access to Fortnite Creative will be available in two tiers. Everything will be saved on a private version of the battle royale mode's island, which should allow players to experiment with pretty much anything they want to without affecting the game's existing play modes.

We look forward to exploring this new mode when it launches. Because it's a different mode from Battle Royale, it's likely that this variant will not be available on Android or iOS.

Here's the official announcement video with some footage of the new mode.

Like many Fortnite emotes, the dance later appeared in the game as a purchasable emote and was renamed to "Swipe It". Like past Fortnite Seasons, Fortnite Season 7 will bring with it new gear, challenges, and of course, changes to the game's map.
