FORT­NITE

There’s snow game like Epic’s shooter, and now you can build your own game

XBox: The Official Magazine - - START / CONTENTS -

Sea­son 7 has ar­rived on Fort­nite is­land in a lit­eral flurry of cool new up­dates. As be­fits the time of year, the en­tire south­west corner of the map has had a mas­sive dump of snow all over it.

New cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions in­clude weapon and ve­hi­cle skins, and new char­ac­ter skins, with more than one out­fit up­grade­able. Plus there’s a con­tro­ver­sially pow­er­ful Mythic-tier weapon called the In­fin­ity Blade, with which play­ers have been wreak­ing havoc. There’s also now a five-seater bi-plane, with easy ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity al­low­ing for some very cool stunts.

The lat­est build

The most in­no­va­tive new ad­di­tion is Creative Mode, which will ap­pear as an­other top-level op­tion along­side Bat­tle Royale and Save The World. It gives you ac­cess to a pri­vate is­land on which you can build with in­fi­nite re­sources, us­ing ba­sic ma­te­ri­als or pre­fab struc­tures. Once you’ve built your own Fort­nite sand­box, you can run your own cus­tom matches, ob­sta­cle cour­ses and more, with your prob­a­bly half-de­stroyed is­land re­vert­ing to its saved form at the end of each match.

Epic’s creative di­rec­tor Don­ald Mus­tard tweeted, “Fort­nite Creative is su­per early and rough. But it’s a great start… ex­pect rapid it­er­a­tion and up­dates as we re­fine and add and build for years to come.” In other words, as with the rest of the game – which is still in Beta – it’s a work-in-progress as the com­pany look to iron out any prob­lems play­ers may ex­pe­ri­ence.

RIGHT The gilders are get­ting ever more in­sane, This one’s a dragon…

Fort­nite Sea­son 7 is now live, along­side Creative Mode.
