NICKMERCS, Ninja and Three Other Creators Have Banded Together to Create Their Own Battle Royale
Ali “SypherPK” Hassan, Nicholas “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff”, Richard Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Timothy John “Timthetatman” Betar and Jack “CourageJD” Dunlop have banded together to create their own battle royale which will launch in 2024. The game is being developed by Superjoy Studios, which is a subsidiary of SypherPK’s Oni Studios and community members of each of the creators will get to influence the creative direction of the game.
“Project V” will involve fans in the creative process
The new project is being created using Epic Games’ new Unreal Editor for Fortnite tool, also known as Creative 2.0. The tool allows players to create their own maps and there are assets available that date back to Fortnite Season One and players also have plenty of map layouts to choose from including ones that are inspired by other games like Mario Kart.
Epic Games incentivizes the use of its UEFN tool by offering Fortnite players XP even in player-created maps. The five streamers want to take things a level further by creating a brand-new battle royale experience by partnering with a game development studio.
Superjoy Studios said in its , “With custom weapons, a full scale map, fluid movement and unique mechanics in our sights, we have ambitious plans to build something really unique. While we can't give away too many details about the game just yet, here's what we can tell you: Project V will be a game that puts community feedback and features front and center.”
The creators will be directly involved in the creative process and the development team features members of the Fortnite Creative team. Oni Studios will also open a Discord channel where subscribers of the five content creators can offer their inputs and help with the game’s creative direction.
Fortnite map makers are joining the project and will be creating maps based on Oni Studios’ creative direction. The game is expected to release sometime in 2024 and registered players will start receiving regular updates soon via the official Discord server.
