Fortnite Adds A First-Person Mode Later This Year

More creator tools will also become available to use.


If you're one of the people who yearned to see Fortnite through a first-person perspective, Epic Games has some good news for you. Announced during the State of Unreal livestream during GDC 2024, the developer stated that you'll be able to play third-party Fortnite content in first-person later this year.

As part of a public roadmap, the item "First Person Camera" appeared in the Q4 2024 period of a presentation slide. You can watch a clip of the camera in motion around an hour and four minutes into the livestream. While short, it looks much more detailed than the camera that appears when aiming down sights with some specific scopes in the current version of the game.

Notably, this is not a mode coming to the main battle royale mode. Instead, the first-person camera will be an option for those creating content using Unreal Editor for Fortnite, which means we may see see third-party creators releasing first-person Fortnite content.

In the same roadmap, a few other upcoming additions to creation tools are proximity chat, text chat, item trading, and custom quests. There'll also be Fall Guys assets and animations available for folks to make obstacle courses sometime in the future.

During the presentation, Epic shared that creators have been paid more than $320 million since the launch of the Unreal Editor for Fortnite. In addition, starting today, the developer is also releasing templates and devices of Rocket Racing to build your own race tracks, in a similar fashion to the Lego toolset. Elsewhere in Fortnite, don't forget to check out the Rise of Midas event for some free rewards and a floor is lava mode.

This story has been updated to clarify that first-person mode is for UEFN, not battle royale.
