Epic Games are aiming to develop a miniature version of Fortnite Battle Royale for players to enjoy with their friends in creative mode, using a smaller starting circle.
Fortnite is currently unrivalled in terms of popularity thanks to the constant updates pushed out by Epic Games to keep the gaming experience fresh for its large user base. However, Epic have been eager to cater to more casual players in their latest update, which has sparked controversy in the Fortnite community, by removing the siphon mechanic that was widely loved.
There has been no communication that the change will be reverted anytime soon, but Epic have confirmed that they are developing a system in creative mode that would allow players to simulate a mini battle royale game among their friends.
Creative mode was introduced to Fortnite in Season 7, allowing players to create their own islands that can be shared with friends.
Players were able to produce amazing creative worlds such as one user who perfectly recreated Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s Shipment map and players who used Fortnite’s music blocks to construct courses that would play music from artists like Drake.
More recently, creative users have managed to create a version of the storm that would eliminate players on impact.
Now, a developer at Epic Games has revealed that they are working to add moving storm circles as an option for players to enable which has previously been difficult to implement.
Epic also confirmed that the long-term goal would be to allow players to run a “mini-BR” game where the bus route, storm and other factors could be pre-determined – allowing for lots of fun among friends.
Players would be able to hone their Fortnite skills from the comfort of creative before testing their skills in the default playlists or newly added arena mode.
Having moving storm circles in creative would also be well received in the Fortnite competitive community as players would be able to consistently practice hectic end-game scenarios commonly seen at LAN events.
