Fortnite has a large player base, and unlike other fighting games, the violence that it might have had is mostly hidden behind goofy animations and silly cosmetic items, making it appropriate for just about anyone. Update v27.10 added Island Age Ratings to Creative mode and Fortnite cosmetics; this led to some cosmetic items being unusable when playing certain islands.
Gamers might be unable to use all of their cosmetics items while playing their favorite Creative Islands – it’ll depend on their Age Rating. This guide will tell players everything they need to know to ensure that they understand how it all works.
Age Rating Restrictions
Fortnite Creative Islands now have Age Ratings; this decision was made to ensure that everyone has a safe experience while playing Fortnite. The age rating system depends on the user’s region, but ultimately, this is a way to separate kid-appropriate cosmetics from teen-appropriate cosmetics.
If a skin is rated E, players will be able to use it to play any Creative Island, but that won’t be the case if it’s rated E10+. Most of the skins were restricted because they have some sort of weapon on them. The same happened with other cosmetics, such as back blings and harvesting tools. For example, the Auto Clutch back bling, included in the Runway Racer event, is shaped like a gun and therefore cannot be rated E. Oddly enough, some lobby tracks and loading screens were also disabled in certain experiences due to Age Rating restrictions, even though only the sure can see and hear them.
How to Use Age-Restricted Cosmetics in Creative
Seven percent of the game’s skins were disabled in these experiences due to their design, and this made some fans quite upset, as they want to be able to use all the cosmetics that they own while playing any Fortnite game mode. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is not possible to use any age-restricted cosmetics while playing rated-E Creative Island, but this could change in the near future.
Epic assures fans that it will continue to work on this and that most age-restricted cosmetics will receive alternative styles that will make it possible for players to use them while playing E-rated Creative Islands.
