Fortnite Fan Concepts of the Week – August 10

Published

on

One of the most popular places to chat about everything and anything Fortnite related is the FortniteBR subreddit which also includes fan concepts, artistic drawings, and more. Here are our favorites from August 3 – 10.

Over 25 million fans are a part of the Fortnite community, and tons of them enjoy showing off their artistic renditions that are driven by their passion for Victory Royales.

There are over 1 million fans subscribed to the FortniteBR subreddit, which is the main subreddit dedicated to everything and anything Fortnite Battle Royale related. There are separate subreddits for Creative, Save the World, leaks, etc.

One of FortniteBR’s most popular flairs is the “artistic” label, which designates an artistic creation post. Even Epic Games employees pop into the subreddit to possibly brainstorm potential skin ideas.

Here are our favorite Fortnite fan concepts of the week!

BRUTE meme template

Memes are a consistent part of the internet and thanks to DriftsArm, we can combine the best of two worlds with this meme template.

Inspired after the original tri-framed meme where an employee is tossed out the top story of a building due to suggesting an overly logical solution to a problem.

Another Template For My Children from FortNiteBR

With this template, a Drift character is seen standing over the one-armed Pressure Plant mech from Season 9, a Demogorgon character from the Stranger Things promo, and a BRUTE mech. The Drift becomes enraged by the BRUTE and swiftly tosses him out the window.

The creator was nice enough to leave the template text-free, so people can add their own hilarious subtitles!

Pixel Tilted

Loading Screens were added back in Season 4 as unlockables through the Battle Pass. Once players completed all seven challenges for each week of the season, they would be rewarded with a special loading screen.

‘Pixel Tilted’ – An Animated Pixel Art Starting Soon Screen from FortNiteBR

OliTimpers posted their animated loading screen that has a retro pixel-style. The loading screen is based on Neo Tilted, which has since been replaced by Tilted Town.

Individual stars glimmer in the background as the holographic banner rotates high above the city. We would certainly like to see this unique style implemented into a loading screen.

Oui Oui concept skin

Fortnite skins are typically designed with bright colors and themes, but some players are interested in clean, simple looks.

One fan, laurenadamsdesign, took it into their own hands and created their own skin named “Oui Oui”.

Been dying for a simple, sleek skin like this with blonde hair so I made my own 👱🏻‍♀️ from FortNiteBR

The female skin has a blonde woman wearing a black beret along with a skin-tight block jumpsuit similar to Black Widow’s from the Avengers Endgame promotional event.

This skin might be simple, but those thigh-high boots make her look as intimidating as she does fashionable.

Dusty Depot hand painting

One of Fortnite’s original POI’s has undergone several changes since Season 1. With Season X, the location returned after previously being named Dusty Divot due to the crater crash in Season 4.

Even though the location may not be popular like Tilted or Pleasant Park, there are a few die-hard fans out there who love to show their dedication to one of Fortnite’s OG locations.

Now this is commitment from FortNiteBR

Pyv0x posted a hand painting that shows the original three blue, grey, and red warehouses.

Even if you aren’t a fan of Fortnite, this drawing looks to be created by a professional due to the artist’s unique stroke technique. Well done!

Jaws-inspired hand drawing

Movie fans young and old are familiar with the 1975 film “Jaws”, where a great white shark devastates a New Jersey beach town.

One fan, fijistudios, was able to create a rendition of the iconic movie poster by infusing different Fortnite-themed items.

Be careful in the waters this summer kids from FortNiteBR

The bottom half of the picture is occupied by a terrifying shark with all of its teeth displayed to its prey.

Above the shark is an unsuspecting Fortnite character wearing the Leviathan skin while wielding the Chomp Jr. pickaxe.

If you have a submission you would like to post in order to be considered for next week’s concept of the week list, be sure to tag our official Twitter @FortniteINTEL.

Fortnite fan creates amazing in-game Spotify player concept and players want it

An amazing concept between Fortnite and music streaming service Spotify has fans go crazy. Here’s more details on that.

Fortnite Spotify collab concept

Fortnite concept artists are always one step ahead of the ideas that the developers think of and bring popular fan requests to life with their art. Recent concept art shows a music player in the game linked to Spotify that has stirred a conversation amongst the player base.

Ever since Fortnite added new features to the game like Party Tags, the expectations of players have gone through the roof for developers to add more to the game. However, Epic does not usually make a major change to the game every month until the launch of a new season.

While certain gameplay features that were newly added, Sprint and Mantle have been quite famous among the Zero Build community, the Gyro and Flick Stick were not received well after their launch. As new players are joining the loop every day and getting themselves familiar with the game, Epic Games are trying its best to make the UI of the game simpler.

However, a recently surfaced concept art created by a Fortnite fan went quite viral as it shows an in-built music player linked to Spotify that would be a cool feature in the game if added. Here’s how the community reacted to it.

Spotify Player concept in Fortnite goes viral

Famous Fortnite leaker FNBRIntel recently tweeted a concept of a built-in Spotify music player in the game menu that can play any song the user desires. This would then eliminate the need for Lobby Tracks or Music Packs Fortnite provides its player base within their lockers.

Using this option would enable players and content creators to play copyrighted audio and their favorite songs in the game while they are queueing up in the lobby or playing a match with their friends, much like Rocket League has it. However, this would in turn cause major distractions to pros and sweats who even turn off radios in Fortnite vehicles.

Another player added a concept of a free Spotify-themed wrap that can be given out to those who link their Spotify accounts to Epic. Moreover, this would also increase the number of users on the streaming platform.

While PC players can play songs on Spotify using the multitasking feature, PlayStation players also enjoy the same with a built-in player on their PS menu. This allows them to play their favorite music while playing any game on their consoles.

As this concept would be a really cool feature for Epic to add, it would end the value of Lobby Tracks the game sells in the Item Shop or provides its players via the Battle Pass or certain limited events. Another major drawback would be to streamers and content creators who cannot use copyrighted audio on their streams to keep their content fair on a specific platform.

Subway Surfers officially reacts to crazy Fortnite collab concept

A handful of notable franchises are yet to collaborate with Fortnite including Subway Surfers. Here’s why this could finally happen.

Fortnite x Subway Surfers

Fortnite players love coming up with concepts, especially related to crossovers. A Subway Surfers concept went viral recently and it was good enough to catch the attention of the developers.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Subway Surfers is one of the most ground-breaking games in history. It popularized the endless runner genre and has been downloaded by literally billions of players.

Crossovers now define Fortnite, and here’s why a collaboration with Subway Surfers could be closer than ever.

Subway Surfers’ concept imagines Tricky as a Fortnite skin

Subway Surfers has introduced a wide range of characters since its launch, and fans love them all for unique reasons. As it turns out, Fortnite artist Anhel admires Tricky and accordingly, he turned her into a skin.

Anhel’s Fortnite x Subway Surfers bundle included these items:

  • Tricky’s outfit
  • Subway Surfers spray
  • 1500 V-Bucks
  • Subway Surfers’ Jetpack back bling
  • Subway Surfers’ theme song album

To be fair, this is a flawless bundle for any Subway Surfers fan. The mobile game has many elements that can be incorporated into Fortnite, and an official crossover is almost guaranteed to be a massive hit.

Subway Surfers’ official Twitter account reacted to the aforementioned concept and even tagged Fortnite asking about a collaboration. Naturally, this was enough to ignite the hopes of countless fans who love both franchises.

Subway Surfers’ policeman catches Jake with Fortnite’s builds in fan-made clip

It is evident that the Fortnite community is eagerly awaiting a Subway Surfers’ collab. Popular modder Brux uploaded a clip on YouTube that perfectly blended both the games and it already has over 250k views.

Brux somehow gave the policeman building and editing abilities who then used them to catch Jake within 10 seconds. To say the least, it was the perfect representation of a Fortnite sweat.

Brux is clearly one of the most talented modders out there. It is safe to assume that such content will become more common with Creative 2.0 which should be available before 2023.

Now that Subway Surfers has officially reacted to concepts, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the collaboration with Fortnite takes place soon. As of now, the Fall Guys collaboration has been leaked and loopers can look forward to completing Crown Clash challenges for free rewards.

Fortnite concept art reveals amazing scrapped ideas for Sanctuary, Mothership UFO, and more

Fortnite confirms the design of map locations after inspecting a ton of concepts, and here are some brilliant ones that didn’t make the cut.

Fortnite could have been an entirely different game if Epic Games had approved some awe-inspiring concepts by Gervasio Canda for POIs like Sanctuary, Zero Point desert, Primal Village, and Coliseum, among others.

Artstation is a platform that lets users view countless artworks by some of the most talented artists in the world. Fortnite concept artist Gervasio Canda, who is a senior concept artist at Epic Games, is also a part of the Artstation community.

Over the years, Canda has submitted several brilliant concepts on the platform, and Fortnite players have been admiring them all.

Fortnite players feel robbed after witnessing the unreleased concepts for prominent locations

Fortnite is known for its unique cartoonish design. The island has a vibrant color theme, and there are several goofy elements that help the game stand out.

Players around the world haven’t really complained about the existing Chapter 3 map. In fact, the majority of the community considers the Artemis map to be much better than Apollo (Chapter 2 map).

However, players are also feeling a little disappointed that some of Gervasio Canda’s concepts didn’t make the final cut. For example, Sanctuary wasn’t just a forest with scattered buildings. Instead, the Foundation’s statue had a high-tech research lab inside it and a massive rusty ship rested on the shore.

We currently have an empty beach near Sanctuary but in the concepts, there’s a well-planned village with several shacks near the shore.

The concepts have not only revealed the Chapter 3 POIs but also major Chapter 2 locations like the Primal Village from Season 6, the Zero Point desert, and Coliseum from Season 5.

The concepts are full of details and loopers are perplexed over the fact that Epic Games rejected them. They believe that the Zero Point desert in Chapter 2 Season 5 was rather bland, and Sanctuary and The Joneses in Chapter 3 can certainly have more details.

Why did Epic Games scrap the most breathtaking Fortnite concepts ever?

Aesthetically, it is hard to even compare the aforementioned concepts and the actual Fortnite POIs. A number of plausible reasons for Epic Games not finalizing them could be factors like map size, combat, storyline, and in-game mechanics.

While making a location, the developers not only have to make it look good but also place loot and other components that grant mobility. Moreover, adding heavily detailed locations could have increased the game size significantly.

Although it is impossible for loopers to ever witness the Chapter 2 concepts in reality, we can still get The Seven’s high-tech labs. There’s a closed bunker under The Foundation’s state, and players now have sky-scraping expectations from whatever is hiding inside.
