Fortnite’s Nostalgic Original Map is Playable Yet Again

Nostalgia is in the air in Fortnite, as a studio has recreated the original battle royale map and made it available to players. Fortnite was released back in 2017, and as with most online multiplayer games, it has seen many changes. Some of the most significant have altered Fortnite‘s map, which today is very different from how veteran players once knew it.

With Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 released, players saw the game’s map change one more time. The game has said goodbye to Faulty Splits, which has been replaced by the new POI Mega City. This is not the only new area: the new biome also features Steamy Springs, Knotty Net, and Kenjutsu Crossing. All four areas have buildings inspired by Japanese architecture and are in line with the cyberpunk theme that is the focus of the current season. But for Fortnite players who miss the early days, a solution has just emerged.


The Atlas Creative studio has released a recreation of the original Fortnite map using Creative 2.0. Fortnite‘s latest update introduced a new creative tool that is very powerful and makes it possible to develop custom game modes using Unreal Engine 5. The Atlas Creative map features iconic locations such as Tilted Towers and Loot Lake, all POIs, and the original map’s loot pool. To play the Atlas Creative map, the player needs to do the same step-by-step to play a regular Fortnite Creative map and enter the code 2179-7822-3395.

While Fortnite Creative 2.0 is blowing minds for its potential, the new tool is not safe from issues. Developers have had problems with publishing maps, and the same happened with Creative Atlas. On its official Twitter, the studio further reports that it had memory issues when trying to make a perfectly approximate recreation of the original Fortnite map. Because of this, a portion of the map had to be scaled down. Additionally, the studio acknowledged that there are other bugs affecting the map. Atlas Creative apologized to players and said that it hopes to have an update soon.

Fortnite‘s long-awaited new crossovers were the most talked about topic at the start of Season 2. Now it’s understandable that Creative 2.0 may be the potential new focus of attention for players and content creators. After all, thanks to the tools released by Epic there is a world of possibilities to be explored. These possibilities, for example, have allowed Atlas Creative to bring back Fortnite‘s original map, something that would not have been possible a few years ago.

Fortnite is available now for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
