Epic Games executives released very important information about Fortnite’s Creative 2.0 maps. They claim that the new maps will be playable without having the game.

SypherPK, the well-known Fortnite video producer, interviewed Epic Games managers yesterday. In the interview were present Tim Sweeney, the company’s CEO, and Saxs Persson, who holds the position of vice president. The company’s executives let the Fortnite community know important details about the game’s future and Creative Maps 2.0.

Creative Maps 2.0

The Creative Maps 2.0 tool, Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN), was released a few days ago, specifically on March 22; since then, users have been learning how to use it properly. However, there are already many people working on their creative maps, and fans are looking forward to the release of all the creations. Best of all, when these maps are released, it won’t be necessary to have Fortnite Battle Royale downloaded on their computers.

This information has been confirmed by Epic Games executives, who, in the interview, commented on the company’s ambitions for Creative 2.0. Epic hopes users and developers will use the new Fortnite tool to create AAA games.

SypherPK, in his interview, was able to talk to two of the most influential people at Epic Games. So SypherPK took advantage of this great opportunity and asked very interesting questions their guests. One of the most important questions asked by SypherPK was the following:

Can users use Creative 2.0 maps without downloading the game (Fortnite Battle Royale)?

Epic’s vice president, Sax Persson, answered SypherPK’s question. Persson comments that the base installation of the game is being reduced until it can be brought to a minimum; in this way, they seek to make the Battle Royale downloadable. This means users only have to download the reduced client and the terror map. In addition, Persson adds that the absence of the game’s five-year content loadout is essential for widespread adoption.

According to Epic’s management response, the game developers are working on making that possible, and when it is finished, the game’s structure will be nothing like what we know right now. To be more specific, the title will not focus primarily on Battle Royale mode.

At the moment, it is necessary to download the game to enjoy the new Fortnite Creative 2.0 maps. However, for players who only play the creative mode is meaning a problem, as they do not want to spend 20 GB of storage on something they are not using.

Epic executives hope to provide a solution to these users soon and that they only need to download the base client and the specific map they want to play.
