While Fortnite remains an incredibly popular game, thanks in large part to its free-to-play Battle Royale component, it has evolved considerably since its first release in 2017. The focus has largely shifted to the many crossover events, concerts, and Gameplay improvements that have been made over the years, most recently with the high-profile additions of characters like Master Chief, Kratos, and Din Djarin with Baby Yoda. However, one mechanic at the heart of the experience is being able to build structures on the fly.
One feature that has been promised for quite some time is the idea of disabling the pre-release mechanics that are used to build certain structures. Within a Battle Royale match, all players have the ability to edit and configure different settings, although many choose not to do so, as many players have indicated that it can lead to errors, confusion, and early removal from a match by being fidgety. . with a structure. As such, there has been a campaign by fans for Epic to disable it entirely, or at least provide a setting to disable it.
With 2020 quickly coming to an end, Epic Games addresses this request in a new Tweet. The company first acknowledged that it made a mistake with its attempt to disable predictions in update 15.10, without fully offering what the Fortnite community really wanted. The Tweet goes on to confirm that many gamers just want a way to avoid editing until the build is completely in place. As such, the configuration will receive further adjustments early next year.
We understand we missed the mark in adding an option to disable pre-edits in the 15.10. We know many of you find pre-editing unnecessary and would like a setting where you’re not able to edit a build until the build is in place. We plan to adjust the setting early next year.

Unfortunately, no additional details on the update were provided and it is still unclear when these editions will officially arrive. Early next year could mean a lot from January or the first more general months of the year. It is also heavily dependent on the studio itself, as employees are still working from home due to the global COVID pandemic, which has caused many delays in various studies, pushing content and updates later than originally planned.
For now, players can continue to engage in the evolving narrative of the current season, which brings all sorts of different iconic characters to the game. Epic recently added a Green Arrow skin based on the version of Stephen Amell previously seen on The CW’s television show Arrow. Additionally, a new pack called Royalty and Warriors was released earlier this week that brought Captain Marvel, Taskmaster, and Black Panther into the popular battle royale.
Fortnite is a free game for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with versions of PS5 and Xbox Series X in development.
