Fortnite Creative's Hub will soon be home to some fan-made content. The devs have given their guidelines and told us what genres they're looking for. Players whose island gets chosen will be featured in the Hub.
Fortnite's Creative mode has some major news coming at the end of 2020. Players will be allowed to create entirely new genres in Creative and have an impact on the game mode itself.
The players will be tasked with creating Sandbox RPG, Social Simulation, Survival, Job Simulation, Social Deduction, and Tycoon games. Creative mode is limited but the devs will be looking for the level of detail, art quality, consistency, and complexity of game mechanics. They will select a submission that meets their standards and it will be featured in the Hub for an extended period of time.
The devs have supplied a description of each genre they will be looking for.
