Epic Games to undercut Valve with own PC games store

2 Milly is not amused by his Fortnite emote

Epic Games officially announced Creative mode on Wednesday morning (following a big leak on Tuesday night).

Creative will be a greatly expanded version of the existing Playground mode and allows you to build your own levels and create your own mini-games, in what sounds like nod to fellow child-friendly games such as Minecraft and Roblox.

Season 7 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is also due to start on December 6, but for anyone in the United Kingdom that will presumably also be Friday - unless you're an insomniac super fan.

From 13th December, all Fortnite Players will then be able to enjoy everything that Fortnite Creative has to offer on their own private island, for free.

Season 6 of Fortnite is coming to an end this week, and that means Season 7 of the hit battle royale game is just around the corner. Epic state that the mode is "new and exciting, but not final", though they aren't putting any kind of beta or alpha label on it. The initial announcement has drawn attention and praise from throughout the video game industry for a surprisingly thorough and favorable arrangement for publishers, particularly independent publishers, on the platform.

As we said earlier, Epic Games hasn't confirmed anything about Season 7, we're just having a bit of fun speculating about what's to come. 'Now that we've built such a store, and Fortnite has brought in a huge audience of PC gamers, we're working to open it up to all developers'. The 10,000-strong Epic Games Support-A-Creator program helps you reach creators, so they can help you reach players.

Reports on 2 Milly's decision to take legal action against Epic Games surfaced Thursday when the rapper posted a couple of articles confirming the intention to sue. We also expect to find out more about season seven itself.

Obviously, the studio didn't want to share any of its earnings with Google, which was a surprise considering Fortnite was already available on the Apple App Store. In the freeform creators suite, players can design their own maps and modes using buildings, tilesets and other props.
