Fortnite Creative has a new interactive experience to celebrate the works of Dr. Martin Luther King. The experience has been inspired by Dr. King's historic speech in Washington D.C. back in 1963.

Created by TIME Studios, the March Through Time D.C. '63 experience is a celebration of Dr. King's iconic 17-minute speech for Civil Rights. Additionally, the experience also features museum-themed POIs and collaborative mini-games that allow players to compete with each other.

Let's dive in and take a look at March Through Time D.C. '63 in-game experience for Fortnite Creative.

The experience allows players to travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall, the venue where Dr. King gave his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech. Additionally, the experience also allows players to learn the history of the entire movement from the various museum-themed POIs across this creative map.

The creative map also has a special D.C. 63 spray for players to unlock. This iconic spray can be unlocked by completing the challenges related to Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement.

On top of everything, Epic Games has also issued a message to support the ongoing struggle for Civil Rights across the globe. This message reads,

"The ongoing struggle for Civil Rights as a global movement has benefitted from the collective efforts of millions of people around the world. Tell us how Dr. King, D.C. 63 or a person in your life inspired you by using hashtag #FNDC63 and sharing your experiences on Twitter, Instagram or TikTok."
