Incredible Fortnite character creator would be awesome in Season 2

One avid Fortnite fan has designed an incredible ‘character creator’ concept that would be perfect for the upcoming second season of Chapter 2. 

It’s fair to say that a large portion of the Fortnite community feels the game is stagnant at the moment, as they await Season 2 of Chapter 2. 

Despite the significant changes made when Chapter 2 launched back in October, a number of content creators appear frustrated at the lack of innovation they are seeing. While player counts are hard to come by, Epic Games’ falling revenue is indicative of fewer players.

One feature that would inject some life into Fortnite Chapter 2 would be more freedom to design character skins.

While there are no confirmed plans to bring this to Fortnite anytime soon, one player has devised an awesome concept for how it could look in-game. 

Shared to Reddit on February 8, the concept goes into insane detail as to customization options players could have. 

Details up for selection include character gender, facial hair and headgear. While not exhaustive, the concept was widely praised, amassing nearly 10,000 upvotes at the time of writing.

By the end of the example video, the Jonesy default skin was barely recognizable as a Jonesy.

Blue hair and shiny grey arms were paired with a medieval knight like torso, allowing incredible creativity away from the designs made at Epic Games. 

One respondent raised an excellent point, however, floating the question of why Epic would enable a feature that would potentially lower the sales of skins they add to the game. 

We’ve already seen Epic receptive of fan designs, with player POI creations being implemented into the game over the course of its life.

Whether or not they would be equally open to a ‘character creator’ feature remains unclear, but it’s obvious that such a tool would be more than welcomed by the community, who are crying out for innovation to Fortnite Chapter 2.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
