Fortnite Battle Royale runs on the concepts of the player-versus-player game, which allows playing 100 players simultaneously. Fortnite Creative belongs to the sandbox game mode, which is highly similar to Minecraft. Since its launch, it has won several awards like the 2018 Weebly Awards, Game Critics Awards 2018, Teen Choice Awards, BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards, Golden Joystick Awards, The Game Awards 2018 and Gamers’ Choice Awards, to name a few.

For the first time, the gap between Update 19.40, an update and a new season will be less than expected. The developers usually try to keep a considerable gap between the final update in a season and the end of the season. The primary reason behind it is that the focus of the developer shifts to the fresh content of a new season. However, with the release of Update 19.40, it will be an exception. The players should note that matchmaking will be offline 30 minutes before the server goes down for an update. At the end of Chapter 3 of Season 1, the players wonder what to expect next. The future chapters or season will likely be entirely based on the Star Wars theme. However, official information regarding the same is yet not available.
