Fortnite Battle Royale's Season 7 will feature Fortnite Creative, where players get Mark Zuckerberg's dream... their own private Island.
Epic Games' Fortnite Battle Royale is a 100 player online virtual survival contest, where folks in inflatable llama costumes dance the funky chicken after eliminating similarly outrageously clad competitors. There is no blood, but there are a lot of thrown tomatoes.
There has been a lot of discussion on the Fortnite Over 40 discord of things like tournaments for GenX, or Parent-Kid play-offs, or perhaps organizing aged gamer scrims and developing treacherous techniques to stop the insanely fast millenials. Perhaps this mode will let us all our dreams come true.
Fortnite Creative appears to be the game mode answer to customizing an island and inviting your friends to it! I am sure Epic will deliver something fantastic, even if it takes a few iterations. That is their MO. The first pass will likely disappoint but show great promise. The third will be amazing.
You must buy the Season 7 Battle Pass, however, if you want to try Creative mode. Due to Season 6's lackluster battle pass, chock full of crap that I did not want to earn (I still put in a few hours last weekend to grind out the 100 tiers,) I wasn't sure I would invest in Season 7. I will absolutely fork over the 950 v-bucks (approximately $10 USD) now.
If you complete a Battle Pass, the rewards pay for the next season's pass. Somewhere around 1100 v-bucks were granted inside the 100 tier grind. I spent almost none during Season 6, there were not many compelling new skins or dances.
I did have to invest in Nite Nite (pictured) tho. She totally reminds me of one of my best pals!
Fortnite is ever changing. Being able to set up your own games, or organize your own tournament, is a long-awaited feature. I'm excited to see what comes of it.

Fortnite Over Forty has become a booming little community of mature video game enthusiasts who are positive, supportive and inclusive. Mostly we play Fortnite. A while back some friends and I were looking to play squads in Fortnite that were not populated by random children screaming terrible slurs at us. I am sure the kids […]
Fortnite is constantly ‘changing the meta’ by altering weapon characteristics, adding or simply dropping weapons from the available arsenal. The new Tactical Assault Rifle takes the game a step further away from Close-Quarters-Combat and tries to open up the mid-range. The new Combat Shotguns, a faster firing, longer-range shotgun that can not 1-hit kill is […]
Apparently, the volcano on Fortnite’s Murder Island has gone off! A new season of Fortnite has begun! Perhaps bigger than any map change, and there are many, is Epic’s announcement the pump shotgun has been vaulted. Long the favorite of streamers, pro-gamers, and sweaty soccer skins, the pump shotgun was one of the few ways […]
Even if you feel like AirPods are worth the price tag, you’ve got to admit there’s a certain anxiety that comes with using them. What if I lose them? What if they get wet in the rain? Or drenched in sweat? Or fall into the drink you dropped them into? Shiny tech is great, but […]
With the quick-fix appeal of video games and their own cell phones, it can be tough to keep kids focused on supposedly “educational” toys. And while it may seem counter-intuitive to fight tech with more tech, we’re all in when it comes to the Toybox 3D Printer. We’re not sure if anyone had envisioned a […]
Whether you’re an artist, designer or just organizing a photo album, photo editing software is a must. And software designers know it: Platforms like Photoshop and Lightroom have a ton of helpful features, but you’ll pay for them in spades. Luckily, there’s some competition in the photo editing arena. Right now, Skylum’s Luminar software is […]
