Fortnite is helping creators gain more wanted attention through some elaborate changes, involving exposure, custom images, and trailers. This comes following an introduction of a new Discover UI, a feature meant to set creators up for success. Essentially, a better form of marketing for the creatives who wanted to share within the Fortnite community.
How to Sign Up for the New Discover UI?
Interested parties willing to gain better exposure from the community only need to submit their creation through the updated Fortnite Discover Submission form. The same applies to pre-existing participants who previously submitted an island for featuring. Submission, however, does not guarantee placement in the Discover UI.
Apart from taking a simple step of sending over one’s creation for community-wide exposure, another major requirement is a finished Support-a-Creator 2.0 (SAC 2.0) account. Missing this critical prerequisite will not render a creator to become unable to publish islands. In addition, it will also adversely affect the creator’s ability to be showcased at the Discover UI.
Submitting an Island and Subsequent Appearance
As previously stated, to submit an island would require an application via the new Fortnite Discover Submission form. Alternatively, any revision to an already approved landmass will demand re-submission through the same form. This method is not just exclusive to creators, though. The exact same process that developers go through when introducing new content with certification on consoles.
Upon presenting an atoll, Epic Games will review the submitted content according to established guidelines. Once approved, the creator can expect to see their creation on the Discover UI for no longer than 24 hours after submitting and getting the approval.
It’s an interesting time to be a content creator in Fortnite, thanks to the new Discover UI. Speaking of exciting features that recently hit the game, Impostor mode was introduced last month, bringing a unique experience to the game.
