Is Fortnite Getting a First-Person Mode?

As yet, there is no official word from Epic Games about any sort of Fortnite first person mode. That being said, well-known Fortnite leaker Hypex has today revealed on Twitter that, according to their sources, Epic Games is working on some sort of game mode that uses a first person camera. It is said to be early in development and there are precious few details beyond the single image you can see below.

As for what the first person mode is for, we have no idea for the time being. It could be that it’s for a limited-time event or a brand new game mode. As noted in HypeX’s tweet, first-person gameplay would indeed be good in combination with Zero Build for a mode that focused entirely on competitive gunplay.

For now, that’s everything there is to know about the Fortnite first person shooter mode. As soon as we have new information we’ll keep you posted with more coverage.
