New Fortnite Zero Build mode drops building mechanics, goes full battle royale

Fortnite Zero Build

Epic Games has announced Fortnite Zero Build, a new mode that drops the building mechanics as they envision the game going full battle royale.

While the new Fortnite Zero Build mode is being touted as a new mode, this mechanic was previously a limited event – it’s now a permanent addition to the game.

Here’s a new trailer for Fortnite Zero Build:

Here’s a rundown on the Fortnite Zero Build:

Zero Build is a pure test of weapon, item, and traversal ability. Zero Build can be found in the Discover page as Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads playlists. (Access the Discover page by clicking on the “CHANGE” button above “PLAY!” in the Lobby.)

Without building, all players have the recharging Overshield as your first line of defense in Zero Build. Zip up Ascenders to access Blimps or use Mantling to get the high-ground over your opponents. Don’t forget to Sprint between cover on your way to a Victory Royale!

Fortnite has been available for Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Android.
