Who will be featured next?
A new area named The Block has been added to the Fortnite Battle Royale map and will feature user created structures and creations.
Creative Director Donald Mustard shared the news on stage during today’s Game Awards presentation. The Block will feature player maps made in Creative, the brand new mode where players can build and customize their own private island. Epic will ultimately pick which creations are featured.
Not every private island will be eligible for The Block. User creations must fit neatly into a 25×25 tile area within the flat section of the island. Memory usage must be kept below 50,000 and chest, floor loot, and vehicle spawns will be added by Epic.
The named location Risky Reels disappeared in-game shortly before the announcement. It’s unclear if any lucky players in the area at the time of the change were able to see the giant concrete slab slam down onto Risky Reels as there was no prior announcement. Two billboards were also added with the words “The Block” written on each one.
Fortnite Season 7 launched this morning and added a snowy terrain, planes, and weapon skins. Check out our map changes and comparison page here, a look at all the new Battle Pass skins here, and a guide for the Week 1 Challenges.
