Fortnite’s open-world mode will likely arrive very soon. Epic Games has worked hard on improving the battle royale game and has made it into a worldwide sensation. However, Fortnite is meant to be much more than just another video game.

The addition of the Creative mode in Season 7 turned out to be fantastic. Epic further improved the mode by adding UEFN in March 2023. The next step is massive as the development team is working on an open world for Fortnite. The mode will be massive and may arrive in just a couple of months.

Epic Games’ latest job opening reveals more details about the upcoming mode, and here’s everything you need to know about it.

According to reputable Fortnite leakers, the open-world game mode will be released in Chapter 5. The new chapter of the video game will likely be released later this year, meaning we could get a massive new mode in just a couple of months.

Interestingly, an open-world mode was first seen in documents for the Epic Games v. Apple trial. Initially, many players believed that the mode would come out with Chapter 3, but this wasn’t the case. However, considering that the release of Fortnite Chapter 5 will be massive, we expect the open-world mode to come with it.

We’re still a few months away from the new chapter, but will likely get more information about the new mode later this year.
