As Epic Games prepares to reveal the world the biggest live event ever imagined in Fortnite, the publisher seems to be ready to bring a real renewal to its game. According to Lucas7yoshi, Epic Games is preparing modding support for Fortnite.
No official confirmation at the time of writing, but the hypothesis is both credible and interesting.
The tool would allow players to add features to Fortnite, or modify existing features, to develop additional game modes or additions to the basic game. In short, this would represent a completion of the creative mode that has been going around in circles for months.
Epic Games has long since expressed its desire to go beyond the strict contours of the battle royale. The publisher no longer hides its interest in alternative modes, and is still actively working on some of them.
Party Royale presents itself as a world where everything is allowed and where players can enjoy shows, concerts or movies just like in real life.
The game's extensibility is interpreted by some experts as Epic Games' desire to create a Fortnite metaverse where players would be offered virtually infinite possibilities. It's in this perspective that the arrival of modding in the game could be integrated.
It's necessary to go back a few months to flesh out this theory. On December 26, 2019, two months after the Black Hole event, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney sent out a rather intriguing tweet:
The twelve months Tim Sweeney talks about are (almost) behind us. Several clues are beginning to tell us that indeed, the battle royale as we know it, is only the tip of the iceberg!
