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.

Epic GamesWhat you can make in Fortnite Creative is on limited by your imagination, and the Code of Conduct.

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!”

Epic GamesFortnite Creative is going to be insane, but the developers wants a fair and friendly sort of insanity.

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.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
