Grimy Greens, a location designed by ‘kaancitak’, will be the first fan-made area added to the Fortnite map, the developers have confirmed.
Grimy Greens was designed as a submission piece for ‘The Block’ - an area of the map reserved for fan-made content from the Creative mode where Risky Reels used to be.
Players around the world have been submitting their work every since The Block was announced, but kaancitak’s creation will be the first to go live in the standard version of the game for all players around the world to explore.
Unfortunately, the developers at Epic Games have revealed that the new location won’t be going live just yet due to a delay, but anyone that wants to check it out can do so by visiting the Creative island using the code 8641-0487-1161.
The release of the first the Block content by kaancitak will be delayed and will go live at a later date. Until then visit the island by using code 8641-0487-1161. https://t.co/a6j48ZKlfZ

The designer describes Grimy Greens as: “A secret Vindertech facility disguised as a botanical garden established during season 3, Grimy Greens has a mysterious history.
“The facility is rumored to have ties to the production of stink grenades and has been abandoned ever since the rift closing up.”
The music and atmosphere of the Grimy Greens video makes us feel like we’re exploring the post-apocalyptic world of The Last of Us rather than Fortnite, but that’s what makes it so special!
It will be interesting to see how popular the abandoned facility will be once it goes live in the main game.
December 18 also marked the release of the v7.10 patch which introduced the ‘14 Days of Fortnite’ limited time event, various weapon and Stormwing balancing changes, and even revealed more of castle under Polar Peak.
