In celebration of Epic’s unveiling of Fortnite: Creative 2.0. One independent company has rebuilt the 2017 map using the updated capabilities.
Atlas Creative is the Twitter account that shows us how to make this map. From the moment the video begins, we get flashes of familiar places like Tilted Towers and Greasy Grove. A deeper dive into the development process utilizing the Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). And a compilation of Atlas Creative’s other Fortnite Creative efforts, from cyberpunk-style towns to Toy Story-inspired maps, follow.
While the map isn’t currently available in-game, you can keep up with development on the project’s Twitter account (@AtlasOGBR). According to the crew, the map is presently being published, therefore a promotional code will be made available shortly.
The PC version of Fortnite now has a new expansion pack called Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). For “creating, producing, and releasing games and experiences straight inside Fortnite.” Epic Games says the app may be used in tandem with the game’s current set of Fortnite creative 2.0 tools. One of the new features in UEFN is a scripting language called “Verse.” Which Epic describes as having “strong customization capabilities.” Such as the ability to manipulate or connect together devices and the ability to simply design new game logic.
However, this isn’t the first time someone’s tried to draw the same map from scratch. Fortnite content producer The Boy Dilly recreated the Chapter 1 Season 2 map in 2021. However, the significant difference between this version and the most current is that this one was developed using Creative 1.0.
