Risky Reels is Gone, Hello ‘The Block’

Fortnite was nominated for four awards tonight at The Game Awards, the annual celebration of video games. The show is also known for hosting surprise announcements and tonight was no exception.

Donald Muster, Creative Director of Fortnite, has just announced the launch of ‘The Block’, a dedicated area in Battle Royale where the most impressive creations built in Creative mode will be regularly featured. The chosen dedicated area is none other than Risky Reels, which is now gone from live servers.

Here’s the official trailer:

It’s time to kickoff a #FortniteBlockParty! The most exciting and imaginative islands built in Creative will be featured on the “The Block” in the Battle Royale map. Can you create something that will inspire the world? Will you become Fortnite Famous?

The Block is a new feature that will improve and evolve over time. Please report any technical issues you run into and we’ll get them fixed.

To kick things off, we’re going to provide a few guidelines to make the submission process smooth. Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 25×25 tile area on a flat section of your island. It’s very important that your creations can fit nicely on The Block.
  • Try to keep your ‘Memory Used’ less than 50,000.  Efficiency is just as important as creativity!
  • Chests, floor loot and vehicle spawns will be determined by Epic. No need to include these.

That’s it! Other than the above requirements, any creation that respects our Creative code of conduct is fair game. We encourage you to share your creations with your friends and on social media using the #FortniteBlockParty. We’ll be looking closely at social for candidates.

The Block Party begins now… start building!
