Fortnite players have found a home for some imaginative levels in the game’s Creative Mode. But while Fortnite’s battle royale mode receives regular, heavy updates, Creative Mode hasn’t received most of the elements and functionality of other modes. The players are frustrated.
“They’re really neglecting it,” Redditor said at NexusGaming2020. “If I was optimistic I would say they might be waiting for a big update, but I’m not sure. “
Creative mode did not receive any vehicles; ; boats, helicopters or new cars introduced with the Joy Ride update have not been added. They also haven’t received many of the new weapons or items, like the upgrade station shown in recent battle royale seasons. Some elements were accidentally added to the mode, but Epic ended up removing them.
“I stayed awake until 2 am for nothing,” Redditor XmiteYT said of the recent 14.00 update which came out earlier this week and only gave minor bug fixes in Creative Mode . “I don’t care about battle royale, I don’t care about Save the World. Creative has nothing. “
Players created Super Mario 64’s Mushroom Kingdom, a competitive SOCOM league, Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Nook’s Cranny, and even Fall Guys mini-games in Creative Mode. The lack of updates hasn’t stopped the community from creating as the Minecraft-style mode still gives players a lot of freedom.
Players have found ways to bypass Epic and add some of the never-before-seen items and props to the mode, although the methods can result in bugs in the game.
Epic Games have set high expectations for how often it updates its battle royale mode and now players who have gotten attached to other modes, including the original Save the World mode, feel left out. The pandemic has likely affected Epic Games’ update schedule, but gamers are quick to point out that the Creatives haven’t gotten any new vehicles since 2019 and no new items for nearly three months.
“I feel like most complaints would go away if they communicated,” Redditor Itak2 said. “Then we would have a clear idea of what they are working on. “
