Fortnite Creative: See Sets From Red Dead 2, The Office, Avatar, Avengers
The new Fortnite: Creative mode has turned the incredibly popular Hunger Games-style shooter into more of a sandbox experience akin to Minecraft, and now, instead of 100 players duking it out on an island, Creative mode gives players a private space to construct structures and design custom games with friends.
The upgrade appears to have been swiftly embraced by Fortnite’s fan base of 125 million players, who wasted no time recreating some of the most iconic scenes and maps from movies, TV shows, and video games.
Though the mode launched just last week, there’s already a thriving Reddit community of Fortnite creators showing off their best work. The r/FortniteCreative subreddit has amassed more than 21,000 subscribers in less than a week of existence.
Members have garnered thousands of upvotes for their proudest inventions, many of which take hours to build. So what can you make with Fortnite Creative mode? Just about anything you’d like, as these eight early examples show.
Dunder Mifflin - The Office
Beloved mockumentary The Office came to an end in 2013, but it still lives in the hearts of millions of sitcom fanatics around the world. Now, there’s a shrine to the Dunder Mifflin Scranton crew in Fortnite.
Redditor u/OddEditButOkay posted a walkthrough video of their digital model of the Scranton office. The map featured accurate furnishings — down to the basketball court in the warehouse — and a reenactment of the classic “Safety Training” episode, where Michael threatens to jump from the top of the building onto a hidden bouncy castle.
Avengers Tower - Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Avengers Tower, also known as Stark Tower, is the fictional headquarters of the of the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The high-rise is featured in Marvel comics, TV shows like Daredevil, many of the The Avengers films, and the recent Spider-Man game. Now, it officially lives in Fortnite.
Reddit-user u/Sputeit basked in the grandeur of their inventions after three hours of construction and snapped a screenshot. The photo garnered 1,200 upvotes and fan requests for a follow-up.
“You should make the 2nd Avengers HQ, the one in upstate New York after,” commented u/TheSnipenieer.
Blackwater - Red Dead Redemption Series
The Red Dead Redemption series houses a host of dusty settlements spread across the wild west. Blackwater, an industrialized town that appears both in Red Dead Redemption (2010) and Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018) is one of the most iconic.
Given the incredible hype around the series, it’s no surprise that a redditor going by u/RonnyJOnTheXBitch took it upon themselves to create a version of it in with Fortnite: Creative. The Western game series’ fans were elated and offered a suggestion for a custom cowboy mini-game.
“Finally some Red Dead related content. This is a joy to look at, thank you,” commented u/soldier766. “P.S. this mode with pistol, pump, and musket would fit the theme well!”
Cornucopia - The Hunger Games
It’s only fitting that a scene from the Hunger Games films be recreated in a game whose mechanics seem so directly inspired by the battle royales in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. Redditor u/Jxdvn built a model of the 75th Hunger Games arena, that’s split into twelve sections that each contain unique hazards. Reddit-users saw endless potential for this map.
“This is sick. Imagine if they would add a game mode to Creative where you could set a randomized moving and shrinking storm circle with one life for you to battle your friends in a battle royale style game,” wrote u/thatsfunnyrightthere. “That would be perfect for this map.
Pandora - Avatar
James Cameron’s visionary Avatar created some of science fiction’s most memorable scenes. The film takes places on the fictional planet Pandora, home to the Na’vi alien race and characterized by breathtaking floating mountains and rock formations.
Redditor u/BobbyMcSwanson created a map inspired by the 2009 sci-fi movie for a Fortnite sniper showdown.
“This is a Floating Island map I made for my buddies to practice snipes in,” they wrote. “You start in the little huts next to the fence and glide down to the nearest island to search for loot…The chests are filled with every kind of sniper, a few thermal ARs, and some stink and impulse grenades for fun.”
Marineford - One Piece
One Piece is a widely popular manga series that was adapted into anime, following the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, as he leads a band of super-powered pirates. The animated series features massive structures that Luffy and his crew often plunder, one of them being a seaside fort named Marineford.
Reddit-user u/Nani_skrsbrpreeee made his own version of the colossal fortress.
2Fort - Team Fortress 2
Valve’s classic Team Fortress 2 — a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter — may have come out in 2007, but it still has a bustling community of fans. One of them is u/mstilw577, who recreated one of the game’s most iconic maps for the nostalgia.
Now that’s an ambitious video game crossover.
Dust II - Counterstrike: Global Offensive
Another classic Valve map was remastered inside of Fortnite, this time by u/VariousPurple who recreated the legendary Dust II multiplayer map from Counterstrike: Global Offensive. It garnered 3,800 upvotes and fans were shook by how similar it looked to the original.
“The best part about this build is that it feels more immersive than any others I’ve seen for some reason,” wrote u/Jason_Reddit. “Probably has to do with the similarity in textures CSGO has to Fortnite.”
