Everything you need to know about Project V
For anyone who has followed this OG five-some, the teaser image alone may have sent chills down your spine. These creators were at the forefront when Fortnite exploded onto the scene in 2017 and 2018. The game drew millions of viewers while SypherPK, Ninja, Nickmercs, Timthetatman, and CouRageJD helped lead the charge.
With innovation in mind, they have all come together to build Project V. The Super Joy Studios website gives insight into the motivation behind this new Battle Royale:
"With the launch of Unreal Editor for Fortnite in March 2023, it sparked inspiration in all of us. Immediately, we huddled together to brainstorm and all came to the same conclusion: let's create our own Battle Royale with the power of UEFN."
UEFN is a tool created by Epic Games that allows creators to build entire games within Fortnite. We have seen some breathtaking possibilities thus far, and SypherPK and company hope to elevate this platform to the next level.
Project V's description states these creators are pooling their respective followings of more than 140 million to build this experience. The game promises to feature "custom weapons, a full-scale map, fluid movement, and unique mechanics" with community feedback front and center.
