H ey there, Fortnite fans! Are you ready to make the most of your summer and showcase your creative skills? Fortnite Creative has just announced the Summer Showdown Callout, and it’s time to put your game design prowess to the test.

What is Fortnite Looking For?
Here’s what Fortnite Creative is looking for in your island design:
- Team up!
Focus on combat-oriented experiences inspired by classic game modes like Domination, Capture the Flag, Zone Wars, and more.
- Go big on competition.
Design games that you and your buddies would love to play over and over for those all-important bragging rights.
- Think outside the box.
Blow our minds with innovative twists, like moving capture points or high-flying capture zones.
- Shake up the elimination game.
Get creative with how players are eliminated or how they can help their team even after they’re out.
- Set the scene with stunning environments.
Use your island’s backdrop to enhance the gameplay, whether it’s a volcanic Deathmatch or a space-based Search & Destroy.
- Nail that level design.
Follow the “Level Design Best Practices” document to create an engaging and balanced play experience.
