Fortnite‘s Creative Mode
Fortnite‘s Creative Modegives players the chance to use the game’s assets to create their very own battle islands and game worlds. One fan has put the Creative Mode tools to very good use, recreating the Dunder Mifflin Scranton office building from the hit TV sitcom The Office in the battle royale game.
Reddit user OddEditButOkay’s Dunder Mifflin recreation is very impressive, with sharp attention to detail. As can be seen in the video below, players can visit the desks of Dwight and Jim, spend some time in the infamous conference room, grab a snack in the break room, or even shoot hoops in the warehouse like the famous season 1 episode.

This tribute to The Office is one of the more impressive creations we’ve seen in Creative Mode so far, but there’s not really a great way for the user to share it with the many of Fortnite players who might want to play on it. Right now accessing content directly in Creative Mode isn’t the easiest as players have to share “island codes” instead of just searching for maps, but hopefully Epic makes it possible for users to properly share created battle royale maps with each other in the near future.
There is one way that Epic plans on bringing fan-made content to the actual battle royale map itself, and that’s through The Block. The Block, for the uninitiated, is a giant slab of concrete that recently destroyed Risky Reels, and Epic plans on using it to showcase some of the best user-generated content. So far The Block has been little more than that – a block – but don’t be surprised to see Epic utilize the new real estate sooner rather than later.
In the meantime, it will be interesting to see what other creations Fortnite fans dream up in the new Creative Mode. The mode gives players some pretty impressive tools to shape the battle royale island any way they see fit, and it may even draw in a new crowd of fans who aren’t interested in the core battle royale experience or the Save the World campaign mode.
Fortnite is out now in early access for iOS, Android, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
