Five big Fortnite streamers – SypherPK, Ninja, CouRageJD, NICKMERCS and TimTheTatman – collaborated to create a highly immersive experience in Epic Games’ metaverse, named Project V.

Fortnite’s player base and map designers have reached a new level of creativity when Epic Games introduced UEFN (also known as Creative 2.0). The Fortnite player base is loving the new features, which include returning islands from Chapter 1 and maps inspired by other games (such as Mario Kart).

Players are flocking to Fortnite in droves now that UEFN-made maps may be used for XP farming. These maps are created by amateur designers, but five professional Fortnite players have developed an idea that will permanently alter the way UEFN maps are created.

The streamers, SypherPK, Ninja, CourageJD, Nickmercs, and TimTheTatman, have pooled the resources of UEFN to build the games of the future for the Battle Royale genre. All the details of the forthcoming Project V are laid out here.

Over the course of the next year, the project’s five partners will pool their respective creative resources to guide the initiative, which will feature a staff of Fortnite Creative devs from Oni Studios. In addition, the studio will open a Discord channel just for subscribers, invite fans to frequent virtual town halls for project updates, and encourage community-based voting on the game’s artistic direction.
