A reputable Fortnite Leaker claims that mods could be coming in Fortnite, a major first for the game that has forever changed battle royales.
Since its inception three years ago, Epic Games has shouldered all of the content within Fortnite. From map changes, all things weapon-related, new skins, vehicles, etc. With a few exceptions, there has always been a steady flow of changes in the game, which is why it has sustained its popularity over the years.
However, Epic Games could be making a slight shift by allowing players to have the control of mods in Fortnite. We have seen what players come up with in the Creative mode. From Death Runs to Zone Wars maps, it is clear that the Fornite community has creation talent.
Leaker Lucas7Yoshi made the claim on Nov. 23 via Twitter, but did not have all the details on how mods would be implemented.
"How much we can mod the game is not clear," he added. "I don't know, but this does seem like something big coming up, and even just scripting would be big."
While the final details are unclear, it could be possible that players could use their own weapon skins in the battle royale mode, but it could also mean bigger changes for the Save the World mode where the adjustments would not have a large impact on other players.
Whatever the final decision is, it is incredible that Epic Games continues to find new ways to keep their community engaged.
Here are five changes we want to see happen in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.
