In preparation of Fortnite Creative’s early access release on December 6, the developers have published a code of conduct that they want players to adhere to in order to ensure a fun and friendly environment for all.
Fortnite Creative is a new sandbox mode that will allow players to experiment, create, and share endless scenes and game types on their own private island.
In publishing the Fortnite Creative Code, Epic Games wants to put a preemptive stop to inappropriate or offensive content or behavior that might come out of the inventive mode.
The code of conduct has your typical do’s and don’ts, but the developers gave some of them a cultural spin that looks for players to “be an extension of the brand.”
The developers aren’t kidding either, some language in the code of conduct suggests that violations to the edict might be met with stringent consequences.
“The Fortnite Creative code is not final and will change over time, make sure you are checking back to stay up to date,” Fortnite’s latest post said. “‘But, I didn’t know…’ is not a valid excuse, and honestly a pretty bad one. We’re all here to have fun and enjoy the world of Fortnite!”
The Fortnite developers have seen just how imaginative their players can be, so they still want to provide what they market, which is a free and creative space.
Epic Games wants to provide as safe of an environment to its players while juggling all the new content from the beginning of Season 7 on December 6 to Fortnite Creative’s early access launch and subsequent public launch on December 13.
