As part of the final season, Fortnite removed building, one of the game’s most iconic features. And now developer Epic seems to be making the change a more permanent part of the experience with the introduction of Zero Build mode. As the name implies, the mode is a combat-oriented option where players cannot gather resources to build defensive structures; Fortnite recently introduced a new shield and more mobility options to make up for it, making for a faster experience.
Zero Build is available to play solo, duos, trios, and squads, and it joins an ever-growing list of ways to play Fortnite, including Creative, Impostors and the nonviolent Party Royale. However, at the time of writing, the default Battle Royale mode is not accessible in-game. The existence of a Zero Build option suggests that building in a separate mode will return to the experience, but Epic has yet to specify how or when that might happen.
