Epic has taken over and announced plans to build a Fortnite Metaverse, but the latest move is one of the most obvious so far. The developers introduced the Fortnite Party World, or map, where you just chat with friends and play mini-games. Unlike hubs, these environments are not connected to other islands. Think of it as your final destination.
The company has worked with the creators of Fivewalnut and TreyJTH to provide some Party Worlds (theme parks and lounges) examples. However, the company encourages everyone to create and present their own as long as they focus on the same goal of peaceful socialization.
The world party doesn't strictly represent the metaverse when it comes to living in isolation. At the same time, it shows how far Fortnite has moved from its original focus on Battle Royale and Coop games. Now you have a dedicated island where you can make friends, not to mention other non-combat experiences like virtual museums and exam courses. We don't expect the fight to go away anytime soon, but soon it becomes part of a much larger experience.
