Creative Mode comes to Fortnite on December 6
Fortnite's brand new creative mode has now been officially announced and will appear in-game on December 6. Available to Season 7 Battle Pass holders, the gamemode will give you your own private island to enjoy with friends.
"It’s a brand new way to experience the world of Fortnite, available on December 6. Design games, race around the island, battle your friends in new ways and build your dream Fortnite. It’s all happening on your own private island where everything you make is saved.
Battle Pass owners will have access to a private island for the first week of Season 7. During this early access week Battle Pass owners can invite their friends to play on their island. Starting December 13, all players will have access to a private island for free. Watch the video below for all the details."
