Creative Hub Expansion

With Chapter 2, Epic Games introduced Creative Hub in Fortnite to enhance community engagement. The Hub features saved creations by the players and community games.

The latest update brings a new limited-time mode that archives some of the most popular community-made games. Effective as of right now, players can always expect new content in the Creative Hub every few days.

The ‘Biggest Fortnite event’ is closer than ever

As per Fortnite’s creative director Donald Mustard, the upcoming Galactus event is going to be the “biggest Fortnite event ever”. Galactus has been making his way to the island since August and certainly, the latest update lays the foundation for his arrival.

As per some theories, the upcoming event will be called “The Devourer of Worlds”, and the players must defend the island to save reality.

Despite all the recent additions, fans will have to wait a little longer for the Last Laugh bundle which will be available in the Item Shop from December. However, anyone who pre-ordered the bundle via download code can avail it now.

Apart from these noticeable updates, Daily Express compiled several other changes in the game following the update:
