Fortnite: Zero Build Permanently Removes Building Mechanics in New Playlist

Following previous rumours, Fortnite: Zero Build is now official. Removing the building mechanic in Fortnite, this new mode within the Free-to-Play shooter caters for those that don’t like to build obstacles for defense.

In a blog post from Epic Games, Zero Build has been described as a “pure test” of weapons, items, and traversal ability. Since there will be no building mechanic, players will now have a recharging Overshield for defense, which is a good fit.
