Fortnite getting first-person mode later in 2024


Fortnite has been a third-person shooter since it debut years ago, however, first-person-shooter enthusiasts will be delighted to know it’s finally becoming an FPS later this year.

The new first-person mode for Fortnite was shown off at this year’s Game Developers Conference in the State of Unreal live broadcast and keynote. The new mode was teased as part of the popular shooter’s upcoming roadmap of content.

Fortnite will get the “First Person Camera” sometime later this year, currently and tentatively sometime during Q4 2024, giving players a much more robust first-person experience in the shooter.

It’s worth pointing out that certain guns in Fortnite currently allow players to aim in first-person when looking down their scope, however this is naturally a lot more detailed as it’s a full first-person camera.

The same development roadmap for the popular battle royale shooter also teases other new things like creation tools additions with custom quests, text chat, item trading, and more.

Epic Games also shared that creators have been paid more than $320 million since the Unreal Editor launched in Fortnite. The developer is releasing new templates and items from Rocket Racing so budding creators can make their own racetracks.

Fortnite is available and free-to-play on Windows PC, Mac (both via the official website and Epic Games Store), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
