Fortnite players have been trying to recreate a number of different classic Call of Duty maps on the Epic Games title since the arrival of Creative mode, the latest a Favela inspired design.

Whether or not it looks like the original map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is up for discussion, but it does look to be the inspiration for this ‘Fancy Favelas’ fan build. 

Stacking building upon building like the real favelas of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, its creator Stab_Mixer uploaded their design to YouTube in order to give other Fortnite players a taste of what it would be like to enter a favela in battle royale. 

Those who have watched the video have been posting further design suggestions to help bring this design closer to a real favela, too, with one YouTube user david 15 requesting for more red or orange bricks to be added in the future. 

This isn’t the only Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map to be remade using Fortnite’s Creative mode, with the game’s most popular 1v1 sniper map Rust being brought to the game after Team Creativity’s ‘Risky Rust’ design was revealed in December and surged in popularity. 

Infinity WardRust, another Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map brought to Fortnite by players using Creative mode.

It’s not just MW2 maps being created in Fortnite, either, as a number of different designs have been  pulling on the heartstrings of gamers. 

Some famous destinations from Call of Duty, The Walking Dead and even Pokémon have been built so far, and we’re sure that there will be many more inspired designs posted by the game’s community in the coming months – just like ‘Fancy Favelas’.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
