Fortnite Players Can Now Create Chapter 1 Maps In Creative 2.0 But Without Monetization

Recreation of other maps is prohibited, as per the new rules.

Story Highlights

  • Epic Games has updated its terms and conditions to allow Fortnite creators to recreate Chapter 1 maps in Creative 2.0.
  • The Chapter 1 maps will not be eligible for monetization, but they are not against the terms and conditions anymore.
  • Maps from other chapters are still strictly prohibited, and Epic Games has explicitly laid out the new conditions in a new blog post.
  • The creators will be able to produce a variety of mesmerizing maps through Fortnite Creative 2.0, including alluring boss fights.

Epic Games has recently tinkered with its terms and conditions to allow Fortnite creators to reimagine the Chapter 1 maps in Creative 2.0. As elaborated in an official blog post, the creators will be able to relish the newly released toolset to recreate Chapter 1 maps without any legal repercussions. Unfortunately, such maps reimaging the Chapter 1 nostalgia in Fortnite will not be eligible for monetization and will be purely just for the fun of it.

A beta version of Fortnite Creative 2.0 was only released recently, but it has been all the hype in the gaming industry. Epic Games has cleared out all the misconceptions and reminded the players of specific limits in place. In the past, it was technically illegal to recreate any of the old maps of Fortnite or any other IP in the editor tools, for that matter. Nevertheless, the change in rules will allow players to recreate Chapter 1 maps only.

We are as excited as you to relive the experiences we shared in the original Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 1 map, and so we are granting a special and specific exception to allow creators to publish their own remakes of the Chapter 1 maps (and only the Chapter 1 maps). Like maps built using the ‘Battle Royale Island’ starter island, islands recreating Chapter 1 maps will remain ineligible for monetization,” reads the official description.

It is worth clearing that any projects recreating maps from other chapters or copying from any other IP are strictly not allowed. The terms and conditions have only been tweaked for Chapter 1, and those maps are also not eligible for monetization, as noted above. 

The change has been made so the fans can commemorate the release of the advanced Unreal 5 engine editor tools. Fans can reimagine the Chapter 1 maps that are held dear by longtime Fortnite veterans. Moreover, map authors can also use their creativity to whip up all sorts of maps using imagination that does not break any rules placed by the giant conglomerate.

Furthermore, thousands of creators have already started building maps in the newly released editor in Fortnite Creative 2.0, as stated by Epic Games. The new Fortnite creative has nearly endless possibilities and players will be able to produce all sorts of tough and visually esthetic maps. The other maps will be eligible for monetization, as per the new rules for the Creative 2.0 mode, which does not rely on the old Support-A-Creator program.

After years of waiting, Fortnite has changed its strategy, and map authors will be paid based on player engagement. The creator code method will not be used anymore. Creative 2.0 also brings a slew of changes and upgrades to Fortnite’s Creative mode. Creators and players alike are enjoying the new update, as the editor tools allow fans to pursue a set of options. For instance, players can create wild boss fights in the new Creative 2.0.

The fans have rejoiced at the news because there is currently no method to access or play the Chapter 1 maps since Epic Games changes the maps every new season. However, some fans have raised eyebrows because of the ineligibility in monetization, and others are upset about the inability to play or access any old maps in the first place. Regardless, Epic Games has always strictly enforced its rules, and we can expect it to follow suit again.
