Fortnite Player Turns Retail Row into a Giant Indoor Mall

A Fortnite player has used the new Playground Mode to build a roof over the normally outdoor Retail Row.

Playground mode is almost like a private server, allowing players to load into the map by themselves.

The storm will not begin to shrink for 55 minutes so players can do whatever they’d like. One player decided to use the free time to build a shopping mall.

In a post on reddit, user kudoplay posted a video of their creation – Retail Row entirely closed in. They even created a separate roof for the basketball court, though it still isn’t possible to play basketball in the storm.

The video features the relaxing Mii Channel theme music, as well as added in mall ambience to make kudoplay’s creation seem less vacant.

Unfortunately, it must have taken around 55 minutes to gather all the materials and construct the giant mall because the video ends with the storm closing in, not leaving much time for shopping.

Those who want to build their own creations in Playground will have to work quickly as Epic Games is pulling the mode down on July 12th.

Playground will return at a date to be determined, with improved features and added functionality.

In the meantime, check out kudoplay’s mall in the video below:

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
