It wasn't especially well-received, but just a few months later, the Battle Royale mode would shoot Fortnite to the top of the charts. Everything will be saved on a private version of the battle royale mode's island, which should allow players to experiment with pretty much anything they want to without affecting the game's existing play modes.

Epic Game Store makes no distinction between big and small publishers, and the company reassures in the announcement that games built with any engine will be welcome.

'As a developer ourselves, we've always wanted access to a store with fair revenue-sharing that gives us direct access to our customers, ' commented Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic Games, during a chinwag with Variety.

Epic Games have been enjoying the meteoric success of Fortnite, but some of the game's contents have been the source of potential legal disputes toward the developer.

Interestingly enough, this news comes just days after Valve announced they were reducing the cut it takes from some games. Players can create their own servers and have others join them.

As Eurogamer reports, Creative mode will enable Fortnite players to arrange a number of pre-constructed assets onto the map, to form obstacle courses, forts, out-of-town shopping villages, whatever takes your fancy (and works best with your imagination).

Season 7 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is also due to start on December 6, but for anyone in the United Kingdom that will presumably also be Friday - unless you're an insomniac super fan.
