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.

Epic GamesFortnite’s creative mode allows players to create crazy structures and buildings that can be shared.

What is Fortnite creative mode?

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.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
