Ever since the Zero Build Mode became permanent in Fortnite, players have been ready for some other unprecedented additions. Fortnite is traditionally a third-person shooter, which makes it different from first-person live service games it competes with, like Call of Duty and Apex Legends. However, like Zero Build, Fortnite may be adding the ability to change to first-person.
Is Fortnite Getting a First-Person Mode?
As of now, Epic Games has not announced any kind of Fortnite first-person mode. Well-known Fortnite leaker Hypex says that Epic Games is working on some sort of first-person camera game mode, according to their sources. Despite the early stage of development, there are precious few details beyond the single image you can see below.
It's hard to say what Fortnite would need a first-person shooter mode for other than to give players another fun feature. HypeX seems to believe it's a great addition to Zero Build mode, but that would take out a lot of the individuality Fortnite has. A first-person Fortnite with no build mode is essentially just another first-person battle royale. This could also just be for some kind of event coming up in the future. In spite of this, it is important to keep in mind that this is a leak and needs to be taken with a grain of salt, regardless of how reliable the leaker is.
