Fortnite goes Minecraft
It was announced recently of a new platform launch by Epic Games for the hit game Fortnite. I think it’s important to tell you about it as it has made the game a lot safer for young people and children who enjoy the game.
I will now explain my reasons as Fortnite has entered into the Minecraft way of doing things with its very own Creative Mode which launches today 6th December 2018!
This new creative mode within Fortnite will allow players to develop and construct their very own worlds, this will allow them to play without getting attacked by other players.
I think this is a really good addition to this growing game as it allows for younger players and also less experienced players to learn the game and to develop their skills in a peaceful zone under their own steam without interruptions. The way the hit video game that is owned by Epic games has designed this is for players who use the Creative mode, having their own islands for them to design and play on.
This is a massive addition to the franchise as, the new creative mode will enable players to fly freely around their very own environment and placing scenic elements while designing their own mini-games to play with friends in their own worlds. This is a good safety feature as well as there are always dangers to be awar of when playing in an open multiplayer world, especially for young players.
Epic Games will be launching the new option, on the 6th December under the name Fortnite Creative, which is a new approach by the creators as Fortnite has always been known for free online multiplayer modes and Battle Royales rather than providing build your own safe havens. However, these islands not only offer security but also a place for new players to hone their skills.
Battle Royales are free for alls involving in a 100 players that land on an island and have a mass shoot out, targetting each other each other until only one player remains, for these reasons Fortnite has become one of the most successful video games of this decade the 2010’s!
Fortnite currently operates with over 200 million players globally creating a turnover $300m a month for its developer. The majority of this revenue is generated by purchases made within the game such as players buying skins and emotes to name but a few,
Fortnite Creative is due to be set as available via the main Fortnite menu but in addition to the current modes which are Save the World and Battle Royale.
The Creative mode will give players the choice of deciding on the shape of their island prior to giving them access to their own private landscape.
This is operated by simply using a drag and drop interface function and from this they will be able to populate the landscape with a variety of pre-made buildings and scenic objects allowing for every player to cater to there own needs and choices.
Once this has been created by a player they then have the choice to set up a range of mini-games, such as deathmatch shoot-outs and obstacle courses that can be played with friends that the owner of the island invites to his or her server. This is great for privacy and being able to have fun with your own friends without it being spoilt or disrupted by nuisance players that do pop up in any online game.
Save your Worlds
It is also possible for you to save your worlds and also share them, with friends. You can also visit a hub and see worlds built by fellow members from the community.
There are similar aspects to the creative mode that you find in the Minecraft as players can create their own buildings and landscapes without worrying about being attacked. There has been criticism from parents that Fortnite focuses too heavily on killing other players at a time when there is so much violence in the world already.
It could be argued that violent video games may influence young people who commit violence,
For the first week, only those players who purchase a Season Seven Battle pass be able to have access to the new mode prior to it being available to everyone from 13th December 2018 so get ready as it likely be a will be free for all epic games have warned!

I certainly do not think that Fortnite creative or Minecraft have many similarities with regards to with regards to there creative modes as one is basically a shooting game in effect and the other is a building game. Fortnite I think has created a safer place for children to play this game and in that effect, I will say in my opinion that is a good thing.
There are too many online games where children can interact with adults and we all know the kind I’m talking about. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to safeguard 100% online as people can lie on the sign-up form can’t they!
If there is a mode where a player has his own world and a stranger or player they know, cannot enter without an invite then the control is back with us parents!
I hope you enjoyed my article and I look forward to bringing you more news when it is announced!
