The Future of Fortnite may be outside of the base game entirely. Epic Games have called for players to take full advantage of the Creative Mode tools to make brand-new video games.
For a long time, Epic Games have been subtly promoting Creative Mode as the game’s future.
This is particularly ironic because many players who left the game cite Creative as one of the reasons they did so. In their view, the practice it provided made the average player too good.
Creative Mode isn’t only for Realistic 1v1s and Boxfighting. We already see some fan-made creations expand outside of the base Fortnite game. The best example is the “Spy Within” mode, a player-created Among Us clone in Fortnite.
In a blog post released on December 17, Epic called out creators in the Fortnite community to put the Creative Mode tools to work. They specifically mentioned that they wanted to see survival, open-world RPG, social simulation, action-adventure, and many more game modes come to Fortnite.
Submissions for these modes will be open until January 18. You can take a look at the full list of details here.
Such game modes mirror the lifecycle of Arma 3 – a game that modders made into a completely different experience. For those who don’t know, DayZ and PUBG began as Arma 3 mods.
We could see something similar happen to Fortnite in the coming years, especially with support from Epic Games.
Fortnite may not last forever, but its Creative tools give players the ability to develop entirely new games without ever leaving. Who knows, we may see the next big survival game come out of Fortnite – fleshed-out into a standalone title.

Want to try out some of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps? Take a look at these five options here.
Zone Wars is one of the most popular Creative Mode map genres in Fortnite – so much so that Epic included a Zone Wars playlist during Chapter 2.
We probably won’t see another official Zone Wars lineup while Chapter 2 is still fresh, but here are five updated map codes for some of the best Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps for your Playground Fill matches.
Make sure to get to the Hub as fast as you can so you can avoid the Red vs. Blue battle.
Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1): 1234-0621-9943
Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1) by Prettyboy may not have “zone wars” in the name, but it is an authentic competitive experience that can get intense quickly. Two to 16 players spawn in random locations across various well-crafted maps. With randomized loadouts, players race to be the last one standing.
Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888
Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic. Some of the buildings have invisible barriers at the top, and the storm always pushes to the center of the map. Regardless, it’s a ton of fun to be the last player standing in Nuke Town.
Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739
Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.
Area 51 Alien Zone Wars: 9843-7754-8806
Area 51 Zone Wars by Dropnite is one of the most aesthetically pleasing zone wars maps available. From the way it spawns players in to all of the decorative pieces, it really makes you feel like you’re in Area 51. It also offers a fantastic competitive experience that’s sure to get players ready for the final moments of FNCS tournaments.
50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710
50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.
Leave us some codes in the comments if we missed your favorite Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps!
How to earn free Creative Mayhem cosmetics in Fortnite
Fortnite has launched the Creative Mayhem competition, and participants can easily earn two free cosmetic items.
A new creative competition has launched in Fortnite called Creative Mayhem. Players who sign in and participate in the challenge will earn the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
Every so often, Fortnite will launch a special creative event. These challenges pit players against one another but not in the same way that the Battle Royale does. Previous creative events have featured community-made obstacle courses and team game modes.
Creative game modes aren’t always favored by the community, so Fortnite throws in a few free cosmetic items to draw players in. These are earned by spending time in the featured game modes, finding hidden objects, and completing challenges.
Unlocking the free Creative Mayhem cosmetics
There are two cosmetic items that players can earn during the Fortnite Creative Mayhem event. The Golden Flopper Spray is earned by visiting creativemayhem.fortnite.com and signing in to your Epic Games account. The spray will be given to the player the next time they launch Fortnite.
Next, players will need to spend 30 minutes on the Creative Mayhem Regional Qualifier map. The code for the map is 1994-6642-9073. After 30 minutes, return to the lobby and you will be rewarded with Piranhas Pickaxe.
The Creative Mayhem map is a parkour obstacle course that times players as they run through it. Players can upload and submit their best runs to the Creative Mayhem website for a chance to move on to the next round. There are also monetary prizes for those who place high enough throughout each round of the competition.
For most players though, free cosmetics will be enough. The Golden Flopper spray is a reminder of the elusive fish, and the dual-wielded pickaxe is a nice addition to any collection. Participating in the event is also a great way for players to learn more about how their characters move and interact with objects.
If this event doesn’t seem too interesting, Fortnite is always cooking up something new for players. The basketball themed event should be here sometime next week. But in the meantime, players should make sure to claim their free Creative Mayhem cosmetics.
Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion
Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.
Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.
Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.
Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.
Fortnite Creative beta
Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.
A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.
After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.
Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.
The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.
Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.
Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.
