As speculated, the temporary removal of the building from Fortnite will not be just temporary. Epic Games has just announced Fortnite Zero Build - a new mode that will become a permanent part of Fortnite and will bring shooting matches, without building facilities.
The changes that were present in last week’s testing will also remain in Zero Build mode. This means players will have a restorative Overshield for protection and will move faster than in classic battle royale mode. And the construction of facilities will return to the classic mode.
Zero Build will be able to play in solo, duo, trio, or squad format. The emphasis will be on precision in targeting, and will thus become closer to the experience of other battle royale games on the market.
