Welcome to Grimy Greens.
Fortnite Battle Royale's first player-created content to appear at The Block, Grimy Greens Factory, is now live.
Announced on the Official Fortnite Twitter Account Grimy Greens Factory made by user kaancitak is the first player-created location to be displayed on the reserved space. Kaancitak's creation was first made as a player-created Fortnite island in Creative, available separately from the main map, but has been modified to fulfill The Block specifications.
Announced under The Game Awards in 2018, The Block will regularly play with player content created by users in Creative, and handpicked by Epic to be placed in the main game. Although not all private islands qualify for The Block, Epic Rules determine that it must fit into the 25×25 chip area and be kept under a certain memory usage to be eligible. Epic later adds to chests, floor coverings and car spies to the area.
The block replaced the previous location on this site, Risky Reels. To see how else Fortnite's maps have changed, check out map changes and comparison pages.
Epic announced that it will deliver its platform-based online services to external developers for free in 2019, which is likely to be heavily integrated into the recently released Epic Games Store. Fortnite Season 7 launched earlier in December, adding a snow white, airplane and coat of arms.
